The Paper Shelter Challenge #302 - Dies and/or Punches

Good Morning everyone! Welcome to my post for the new challenge from The Paper Shelter. This week our challenge for you is to use dies and/or punches on your project. I have to admit I rarely use punches anymore other than my Martha Stewart Punch Around The Page ones occasionally and I always forget to use those too!

Anyway here's my card using a border die and the gorgeous Josephine. I made a larger than usual card using a 7.5 inch square card blank. I think I am loving this size so much more than my usual 5.75 inch square as I can get so much more on them without it feeling too cramped. I might just have to buy a few more of those card blanks for my stash!

I used lots of goodies from one of my Crafteezee Collection boxes this time and love the vintage feel of it. As I am leaving my school in a few days time for good and moving to a new school in September, I need quite a few thank you cards for all my lovely friends at work, so this one is for one of those friends!
