Martha Stewart Double Arches Large Punch Around The Page™ Set and CTMH Sonoma

This punch set is really big.  I was surprised at how large it was when it arrived in the mail yesterday.  The card above is 6" x 6" Colonial White CTMH cardstock.  I punched the front and back (inside of card) so that the pretty loops go all the way around the card.  The Olive CTMH cardstock is a smidgen under 6" x 6" and was adhered to the inside front of the card.  I ended up cutting the Olive cardstock around the arches so that the edges curved without a sharp line around the outside.
The decorative paper is from CTMH's Sonoma B & T collection.  The paper flowers were sponged with Olive ink.  There is a little clear CTMH Sparkle placed in the center of the resin flowers from CTMH's Heirloom Assortment.  The ribbon is also from CTMH.


  1. This is a really lovely card. I like the color combination and use of the Sonoma B&T (my favorite of the new sets.) I think the arched edge adds a POP to the whole thing. Very art deco and stunning.

    Nice work!

  2. Bev, would you be able to tell me where you found the comb thing that you use to photograph your pictures? I've been trying to find one, but have no idea what they're called to search for one. Any help would be appreciated. You can email me at Thanks in advance!

    BTW - your card is gorgeous!

  3. Hi Emilee, Thanks for the nice comment. I'll email you about the comb thing, but will post an answer here also in case other people may want to know. I believe they are called flower frogs. I bought mine at Michael's in the flower arranging department. Thanks for stopping by my blog. :-) Bev
