Create and Easy Card with Patterned Paper, Punches, and a White Gel Pen!

Make your patterned paper the center of attention on a project.  With the use of punches and a opaque white gel pen, I’ll show you how I created this simple pee-a-boo punch card, perfect for almost any occasion!


Supply list
TaDa Creative Studios patterned card stock (at least 3 complementing patterns)***
Brown card stock
Kraft card stock
Opaque white gel pen
Punches (3 shapes)
Glue

Step One:  Cut down your neutral cardstock to 9 x 12 and fold so that your card size is 4 ½ x 6.  This will be your card base. Next, cut down your three patterned cardstock papers to 4 ½ x 2 pieces and glue to your card face. 


Step Two:  Use your punches to punch out windows out of the brown cardstock.  I’ve opted to stagger my punches for visual interest. 

Step Three: Use your opaque white gel pen to add some faux stitching around the edges of your card and outline the punched windows.  Glue brown card stock down onto your card.

Step Four:  Hand write your sentiment with the opaque white gel pen or leave blank.

So there, an easy peasy card you can make showcasing some beautiful patterned papers in your stash!  Get to creating and see how many you can knock out before the month of January is through!
