Dies and Punches

Good morning and welcome.
If you are looking for my Cards und More post please scroll down.
It's Tuesday, it's 9 o'clock and it's time for a new challenge at Cardz4Guyz, where we aim to show that making masculine cards is easier than you think.
Now to our latest challenge of -

Use A Die or A Punch

Well that was right down my alley and it allows me to show a card I made awhile ago for my Grandson who was going to a school friend's Creepy Crawly themed party. 

I used quite a few dies and punches to make this box card but its basically circles and ovals with a bit of punched and die cut foliage.
Here are a few close ups of the bugs I made.


The dragonfly is just the caterpillar with white wings! I used lots of bits from the bits box in this and hi lighted some of the features with white gel pen. Even the paper on the flaps was left over from another project. The antennae and  legs were circles with thin strips cut away with a circle punch.

OK, now it's your turn. It doesn't have to be as complicated as this so long as you use dies and/or punches on your project, of course we'd love it if you focused on them.
