Ever since I discover my love for shaker cards, I am constantly trying to look for ways to make them differently with the crafty tools I already have in my stash. Today I would like to share a Thank you card using punches.
Briefly on how I made my card:
- Take a piece of 6″ x 6″ double-sided pattern paper, a 4″x4″ inch pattern paper and a card base of 5.5″ x 5.5″.
- To ensure the punched design is centered on the paper, draw a line 1.25″ horizontally and a line 3″ vertically. Make sure the cut& fold punch arrows lined up perfectly with the lines drawn. Then punch following the markings on the punch by moving the punch anti-clockwise.
- That is what the punched design should look like when finished.
- Fold back the flaps and tuck them under the un-punched sections to get the flower effect.
- Prepare the shaker pouch with old packaging and the Hotmarks tool. I used gold and brown sequins, peach flower-shaped squins and some tinsel glitter.
- I used foam tape to allow more room for the shaker contents to move about and also to add more dimension to the card.
Then I diecut the sentiment “thanks” from Hero Arts Stamps & Cuts set 6 times so that my sentiment had more dimension. I also used Martha Stewart butterfly punch to embellish the card with small butterflies.
Here are more pictures of the card:
The tinsel glitter did cling to the plastic sheet due to the static but you can still see the background and the sequins here and there when you shake the card.
Since I enjoyed punching the the paper so much, I made another card. A really colorful one.
