Post 6 June card challenge - Days 1 to 3

So to add to an already full schedule, I decided I would take part in a June card challenge, put together by the lovely Katherine from Scrap Everything. This post will have my contributions for the first 3 days (mainly because blogger is playing up!) Day 1. Make a square card for a male. The card is a 4x4 card blank (so definitely a square!) with the blue panel made up of coordinating strips placed on a strip of card on the diagonal and then trimmed to size. The red scalloped border was made with an EK Success border punch (love them!). Faux stitching completed the card.Day 2. Make a sympathy card. I created the patterned on the coloured card using a flower stamp and versamark, which creates a tone on tone effect. I then punched out a circle from the pink and brown section and used my Kaszazz dragonfly stamp and punch to place the dragonfly in the centre of the cut out.Day 3. Make a card using the colours blue and brown. This was was harder for me to get my head around, because I couldn't narrow down my ideas enough to start making the card. I'm happy with how it turned out in the end. The scalloped edge is done using a Martha Stewart border punch. The cute little owl is paper pieced using the Stampin' Up punch. I used a white gel pen to free hand a border on the outer edge.
