Christmas Cards with punched-out Decorations
How to do it
Cut a 9.5 x 19 cm piece of red card. Fold in the middle and make a punched-out design in the bottom right corner using a Pop-up punch.
This is what the punched-out design looks like.
Remove the backing paper from a self-adhesive paper lace border and feed it through the punched-out heart.
Also make a punched-out design in a piece of white pearlescent paper.
Trim the pearlescent paper to measure 4 x 8.5 cm with the punched-out heart in the middle. There should be a margin at the top of approx. 1 cm and ½ cm at the left and right edge.
Attach the pearlescent paper with the punched-out heart onto the Christmas card using double-sided tape.
Feed the checked ribbon through the white punched-out heart and attach with double-sided tape.
Attach brads. First make a hole with an awl or similar.
Cut a 9 x 9 cm piece of white card and attach it inside the front of the card using double-sided tape.
A TIP: Add a 3D effect to the punched-out designs by slightly lifting the arches of the heart from the card.
