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.

AE Father's Day Card PROCESS - 20130609_160436Apply adhesive to the back of the Doily Strip and adhere to two hexagons.

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

AE Father's Day Card PROCESS2 - 20130609_160436

Adhere the hexagons down the center of your card.

Add embellishments, twine and sentiment.

More inspiration coming your way from Amy today with some delightful winter projects – great for winter gift-giving!


The following punches were used on this set of cards and tags: Simplicty Dotty Border, Medium Holiday Tree and Contemporary Snowflake, Border Punch Snowfall.

This was a fun set to make the tags are all made out of scraps that were left over, so don’t throw those scraps away! I used the Border System to punch my snowflakes at the same increment along the page and then used the Dotty Border punch to finish it off. I then used some stickles inside of the ne

Thanks for stopping by this week to take a peek at the October Afternoon feature – it’s sure been fun creating with Woodland Park!

Here are a couple more cards as we finish up this week’s feature:

“BEAUTIFUL” — Featuring the Tonic Studios MultiDetail Butterfly Punch

For this card, I angled the butterfly punch a bit before punching the butterfly from the front cream cardstock piece.  Rather than using the detailed butterflies I punched out, I used the negative images left in the cream cardstock and matted over this simple pattern.

October Afternoon – Woodland Park Collection – “huckleberry hill” paper, printed chip shapes, and flower sack.

Other – cream cardstock, mini blue adhesive pearls




“HUGS” — Featuring the Tonic Studios Border System, Sewing Holes Punch, & Doily Edger Punch

Tip – for the pattern strips, I adhered them to a scrap of cardstock along the top edge — then they stayed in place as I punched the scalloped edge.  

This sewing holes punch is one of the first Tonic punches I used and it’s still one I reach for ALL THE TIME!

October Afternoon – Woodland Park Collection – “cat tail pond” paper, “magpie field” paper, “old mill bridge” paper, flower sack, wrap pack, and little flyers.
