18/14: cards with a punch

In card making you can create a strong impact by using punches in creative ways.

For this card I have chosen a deep pink square card, plus two papers in an analogous colour range for the tags. I used my Creative Memories Tag Maker, plus a scalloped corner cutter and a little fleur de lys punch. Just stick the tags on in a pleasing way, making sure there is a good balance between negative and positive space. I added some little lines around the edge as a border for two reasons: firstly, to accentuate the shape of the tag and secondly, to create a hand-stitched look. Now the tags are ready for some calligraphy or lettering.

  1. I love my CM Tag maker also. But, have been cutting up a storm with my Cricut, and been embossing a torrent with my Cuttlebug. Actually had a card making work shop last week. Keep the creative juices flowing, and the sky’s the limit !
