Teacup Card



Good Morning!  Today I am sharing a tea themed card with you!

Product Review
I have to do a product review with this one.  I don't usually state negative opinions, but I have to tell you, I tried the Fiskars circular punch on this one and did not like it.  Of course part of the problem was my own.  I accidently threw away the cutting template.  But I had another sewing template that guides you for cutting 4" and 6" circles (the sizes you are suppossed to start with)  and it didn't work.  I could not get it to punch through cardstock.  I'm wondering if the circle you start with is a different size and the final product is 4" or 6".  That may be my problem.  So if anyone has one of the cutting templates that come with it, I would appreciate a measurement on the diameter.  I really do want to like this punch, teehee.
