Well today I'm going to post a few cards using the punch art technique.
I was asked by 3 friends to make 3 wedding cards, 2 birthday cards in the past few days. (guess August is a big wedding month).
Two of the requests for wedding cards wanted FUN outdoorsy cards and one more traditional. Since they were for 3 different people I repeated one design twice with a few differences. See if can you spot them?
These are self explanatory regarding the assembly, so I will focus on the tools used to create these fun punch art cards.
The first card is the more traditional wedding card with HEARTS to represent the Bride & Groom.
This card used the "Occasional Quotes" level 3 hostess set, Heart Embosslit die, Heart punch, 1/2" circle punch, 1/8" hole punch, Gray & Very Vanilla & Black CS, Very Vanilla ribbon, Lap of Luxury & Bridesmaid DSP, and Basic Pearls.
The Bridesmaid "swirl" design CS creates the Bride Heart. I ran it through the CB with the polka dot embossing folder, then rounded the top with a 1/2" circle punch and lined the neck with basic pearls. I punched a heart from the Bridesmaid 'stripe' CS to make the Groom's shirt, which is tucked behind the Black CS heart for the tux. The black heart was also embossed with CB polka dot folder and I cut a V out of the front area so the shirt would show. The neck was rounded with the 1/2" circle punch. The buttons are punched with a 1/8" hole punch, and the bow tie is a basic knot from a ribbon scrap.
The inside sentiment is also from the "Occasional Quotes" level 3 hostess set.
I like this one a lot.
The next two both used the new two step Owl Punch, two step Bird punch, CB embossing folder, Lap of Luxury DSP, Pink & W.W. CS, and from my stash: Pink ribbon, bright pink rhinestone, white brad & a scrap of white wire ribbon to make her veil.
this card used the scallop oval punch XL to mat the sentiment (retired).
this card used the 1 3/4" scallop circle to mat sentiment from the "Occasional Quotes" level 3 hostess set. Did you notice? I didn't forget to add the little hearts floating between the bride & groom on this card. I think these little owls make just the cutest couple.
The last punch art card is for a birthday and she wanted ladybugs. So here is what made using these punches: Designer Label large, 1 3/4" scallop circle, 1 3/8", 1 1/4", 1/2" and 1/4" circle punches, DSP (retired), and my friend can write in the age for the sentiment from the "On Your Birthday" stamp set.
Sorry for blurrry photo here. Bad lighting and Too much coffee?
The verse is a ladybug poem with a few stamped and cut small ladybugs to anchor it.
Next is a close up of the punch art lady bug... Too cute!
I hope you like these punch art cards.... now Give it Try!
