Barbecue Punch Art (with faux cloud technique)

What do you do when you need a card for a dude or a dad and you've already used your masculine stamp sets to death?  They've seen them already! You're out of aces! 

You make punch art.  Yes you do! 

Punch art....because it's easy, it's WOW and you can create anything, really you can!

To create a BBQ or (grill) you'll need a large 1 3/4" circle punch, word window punch and a 1/2" circle punch.  That is it! 

Faux clouds in the background were done with the scalloped oval punch.

The grass was made by punching the scalloped border and then going back over it (offset) to make the ends 'spikey' and more grass like.  Voila. Man card.  Fast. Easy.  Me likey.

Shout out and thanks to all of the ladies who share their punched art with me through organized swaps and blogging we've received and given a lot of inspiration...and this BBQ saved my bacon....

speaking of bacon...

Doesn't that ribbon look like bacon?  Perfect :)
