Card Making

Punches Help Coordinate Your Projects

Hi folks! Angela Fehr here today and I'm flashing a new punch and a matching card project! 

Paper crafters tend to buy things in sets. Paper comes in coordinating lines, with matching embellishment and often stamps. So it only makes sense to make coordinating projects. Especially when you are using up your scraps! 

Circle and square card kreaxions
I had fun making two cute cards using matching papers and stamps and the same Kreaxions 301 punch. Despite using matching products, the two cards are still unique, because one is a circle card, made using my Kreaxions Circle Cutter

I put a new blade in the cutter before cutting the card shape, folded a piece of cardstock in half, and cut a partial circle, leaving about an inch of fold so it would be a card and not two cardstock circles. Using the circle templates, I cut and punched a sheet of patterned paper and overlaid it on the chocolate cardstock. I love the way the dainty pattern of punch #301 shows through! For such a detailed punch pattern, you want to be sure to be using a lighter-weight patterned paper.

For the square card I used my punch as a border along one side of the card. I love the way the cards coordinate, and I might just make a few more so that I can give them as a complete set!
