Punching my Way Back

Well, I've been a little busy lately. Aren't we all?! But, finally, I'm posting again.
This card uses "punch art." Making something out of punches. What could be more fitting for a little boy card than a piece of machinery? This is the punch art version of an excavator. Also, this is a regular card - the card front is the green and brown, the card back is the blue with the title. This is mostly computer printed. I put my full sheets of blue in the printer to put the party info on the right hand side; cut the card stock sheet in half length-wise; folded those in half; traced the hills onto the front and hand cut them, allowing the view of the title on the inside piece. The green and brown hills were also hand-cut and then adhered to the front. The piece along the bottom: also computer-printed "Here's the" several times onto one sheet of card stock. Then cut the sheet into strips according to the placement of the phrase; I had the words closer to the bottom of 1 1/4" strips so that when I punched the scalloped edge, it would almost be in the middle!

Stamp Sets: Rough Type (clear mount)
Ink: Chocolate Chip
Paper: Garden Green textured, Close to Cocoa smooth & textured, Bashful Blue, So Saffron, Basic Black
Tools: Punches: Scallop Edge, Tag (cab), Word Window (tred), 1/4" square (windows), 5 Petal Flower, snipped (bucket) --the arm is simply small skinny strips of paper
