Extra Large Two-Step Bird Punch!

Here is a card that I made for my Sisters in Stamping blog.  Our theme was anything using the new punches in the Occasions Mini Catalog (pages 10 & 11)!  I used the Extra Large Two-Step Bird Punch.  I love this new punch style!  The punches have a larger cutting surace and a sleeker body.  This give you better punching leverage, and more space when storing!  Some of the new punches are two-step punches.  You get more than one image on a single punch so you can layer like I did on my Mother's Day card!  Other supplies that I used are listed below!

Extra Large Two-Step Bird Punch #117191 $15.95
