This is one example of a card made from scraps and punches! An easy card to recreate using any theme and any punches you have available to you.
Items needed to recreate this card:
Scissors or trimmer
Scraps of paper
Step one: Choose the card background you want to start with.
Step two: Choose the colors you want to use to go with the card you have selected.
Step three: Using a trimmer or scissors, begin to make the presents for the card.
Step four: Punch 3 bows for the presents, and create the ribbon part that goes underneath the bow.
Step five: Using glue, put the presents together.
Step six: Put down the background paper on the card front.
Step seven: Place the presents down on the background paper.
Step eight: Stamp the saying at the top of the card using the black ink pad.
Step nine: Make a bow out of the ribbon, and place a button on top using hot glue.
Again, as with any cards, you can recreate using any colors, sayings, or themes for this type of card. This simple card can be used for a Christmas card, changing the saying at the top to Merry Christmas, while using your favorite Christmas colors for the card. Get a “Get Well Soon” saying, add a few flowers at the bottom, made in someone’s favorite colors for an easy card for someone that is sick. Or just a “Thinking of You” or “Thank You” card for another recipient. Cards can be simple, especially using punches and scraps of paper that you have laying around. People love getting something more one of a kind, made especially for them. They tend to keep them, and showcase them more than regular cards they receive. I hope you enjoy making easy cards, from scraps!
