Punched elements on a card.

Posted on 30 Jul 2014

I love a good punch – whether it’s a border punch or a decorative punch, but ultimately a great circle punch is what gets me excited! So I started off with a matching border and element punch from Tonic to create an easy and quick card. I used the flower punch to create a circle element as part of decorating my card. The Tonic punches are really amazing quality and punches through the Chiswick cardstock with great ease.

At the bottom of the card I used my matching floral border punch and punched a strip out of decorative patterned paper. Once i punched the border I kept some of the remains I removed from the bottom of the punch and adhered some of the punched stars to the top of my card as decorative element.

Punches to me is a great way of making a quick card – they offer a quick solution to adding patterns and shapes to a project. So this is my ten minute card for my stash this week – and i really love the way these punches work together!

Creating can be a wonderful journey and therapy making sense of things where life cannot, and I have tuned my life into this philosophy.
