Less is More 29

I'm just squeaking in for challenge 29 at Less is More, which has a theme of things that move. I chose to use a PTI whale from the whale wishes set to make a baby card. I used a 1-inch circle punch to create the wave, slightly overlapping each punch. I fussy cut the whale since I didn't purchase the matching die. I rounded the corners and popped the panel up on dimensionals.

My Fiskars corner rounder has died for the final time. In the past I've taken it apart and put it back together again, but I don't believe that will work this time. If anyone has a recommendation for a really good and strong corner rounder, please share.

Thanks for visiting!

Paper: PTI white, blue from scrap box
Ink: Memento rosebud, Versamagic Aegean blue
Stamps: PTI whale wishes

Hi Anne, super sweet card and love that whale in pink :)
I use a corner chomper from We R Memory keepers...may not be the cheapest on the market but very strong and it can cut through much thicker materials than a punch can. they come in different size corners and designs too...two on each tool!
Hope this helps

Sweet card!

I use the Crop-a-Dile Corner Chomper -- has 2 choices, a small rounded edge and a larger rounded edge. I saw it recommended at Jennifer McGuire's blog in her supplies list and I think I got it with a 40% off coupon at Michael's. My first little corner rounded bit the dust, but this is sturdy and strong and doesn't look like it will break any time soon. Good luck!

This is simply fab! Just beautiful!
Jenny and Judy have described the same product and I love mine too... it's great to have two differently sized options.
I would certainly recommend it too.
Thanks so much
