Hello! Amber here, with an easy Father’s Day card to share with you, using the Doily Strip Punch. Yes! The Doily Strip punch on a masculine card!!

AE Father's Cay Card - 20130609_160436

First, I chose my patterned paper. I started with 6 patterns in 3 different colors.

Punch out 8 hexagons, ink around the edges and set aside.

With a solid coordinating color, use the Doily Strip Punch to punch a 6-8″ strip.

Rub away any visible adhesive with your fingers. Cut excess strip off.

Add embellishments, twine and sentiment.

For all you mothers – we hope you had a delightful Mother’s Day! We have a charming card to share with you that is sure to make Mom smile – even if it’s a little late!

AE Tonic Mother's Day Card

I used the Petal Pairs Set 1 to punch out flowers in two shades of pink (five of each for this card). Using my Cricut, I cut out a small pitcher and then punched out a small scalloped circle, to which I stamped “mom.”  I cut two pieces of paper to layer for the background and distressed the edges with the Tonic/ Tim Holtz Distress Tool. Using my Tim Holtz scissors, I hand cut an oval shape for the table and also five stems for the flowers. Using a black pen, I outlined the stems, pitcher, scalloped circle and doodled around the table.

Next, I used the Tonic/ Tim Holtz Retractable Craft Pick to poke two holes in the top of the scalloped circle. I wrapped a small piece of black twine around the pitcher and tied it in the middle of the circle. I then used a pop-dot to adhere the circle to the pitcher.

Now, we’re ready to adhere the rest! Using a tape-runner I adhered the table and stems. Then, I pop-dotted the pitcher and two of the flowers. Finally, I added five bright pink rhinestones that give the card a little extra sparkle. And there you have it, a bouquet of flowers guaranteed to last longer than fresh-cut ones!

Hello! I made this 11″ x 8 1/2″ layout using Tonic Punches and the “Maggie Holmes Collection” by Crate Paper. With Mother’s Day right around the corner, I thought I’d make a page simply to express how much I love being “Mama” to these two kiddos.

To embellish the patterned paper’s already feminine feel, I used the Pick of the Bunch Punches, making both a small and large Pansy. (The large Pansy is layered with a second, smaller Pansy). I distressed the edges with Ranger Distress Ink and once I had the petals secured together, I bent them upward to help them stand out a bit. Finally, I added a resin flower embellishment and a button to the center of both flowers.

Next,  I used the Simplicity Doily Strip Punch as a border under my photo grouping and then two more, smaller pieces in place of leaves, next to the large Pansy. Before adhering everything down. I used the Tonic Paper Distresser to rough up the sides and give the page even more definition to it’s already layered look.

Tomorrow, I have a couple of Mother’s Day cards using the Petal Pairs Punches!
