I'm sure you know it's Mother's Day tomorrow ( I hope my 2 sons know!). Well...I had my 2 cards made but early this morning I jumped up out of bed and decided to make a different one for my mother. She loves flowers so I used my new digi image - Alstroemeria - found HERE with my others at A Passion for Stamps.
I coloured it with Promarkers and set to work with my Tonic Studios punches.
I've shown some of the steps in making it below .
|1. Make a card blank by scoring and folding an A4 piece of card and then folding back a section of the front panel at 4.5 cm.|
|2. Cut a strip of white card measuring 4cm x 21cm and punch along the edge with the Tonic Studios Simplicity Geared Butterfly Border Punch.|
|3. Cut a strip of deep pink card measuring 2.5cm x 21cm and adhere this behind the butterfly strip.|
|4. Adhere this piece to the left edge of the front panel.|
|5. Cut a panel measuring 9.5cm x 21cm, emboss and adhere to the card front behind the Butterfly strip.|
|6. Colour digi image and cut out using the OUTSIDE of the smallest size of Tonic Studios Oval Shape Mates|
|7. Using the INSIDE of the next largest size of Oval Shape Mate, cut out an oval of deep pink card|
|8. Adhere the image on top of the pink card and then cut a piece of white card measuring 4.5cm x 21 cm , emboss this and stick it to the turned back part of the card front|
|9. Using the same Oval Shape Mate as for the pink card ,cut out half of an oval using the cutter on the OUTSIDE of the oval.|
|10. Use the Butterfly Border punch upside down, punch around the semi oval|
NB You can line the punch up by just leaving a little gap to the side of the last punch shape as shown in the picture
Add this behind the oval and stick to the card front.
I have added some double butterflies which I made using the Tonic Studios Multi Detail Butterfly punch and the Medium Butterfly punch
