My last card from my Kids Card Class. I love punch art so this class was a lot of fun for me. To design this card I looked on Pinterest for ideas and used a little from this card, a little from that card and a little of my own to come up with this card. One thing I like about this card is it could be for a boy or girl. Olaf makes me happy just looking at him. One of my little girls in my daycare saw this card and started singing "Do You Want to Build a Snowman". She was so cute!
This card is not a normal size. I couldn't make him to fit on a 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" card, so I ended up with a card measuring 3 1/2" x 7 1/2". We used the envelope punch board to make our envelope for this card.
The measurements for this card are:
Whisper White Thick Card Stock #140272
- cut at 7" x 7 1/2" score at 3 1/2" - I don't use my bone folder on the thick card stock as it usually looks rough on the edge. I just use my fingers to crease it after I have scored it.
Designer Series Paper Pack - Brights #138434
- cut at 3 1/4" x 7 1/4"
Other paper used:
- Basic Black
- Basic Gray
- Early Espresso
- Pumpkin Pie
I used the Gift Bow Bigz Die to make the head of Olaf. You will use the piece that makes the loops of the bow. You will round the piece you cut on each end to shape his head. You will want to keep the end pieces that you cut off, so you can use one of those for his teeth. You will need to round the corners of the little piece for the teeth.
The Bird Builder Punch was used to make his arms. You are going to punch out the branch using Early Espresso Card Stock. I then used our Paper Snips Scissors to trim the leaves to look like branches.
Owl Punch for the eyes
7/8" x 1 3/4" Oval Punch for the mouth, punch one in white and basic gray
1/3" x 2" Oval Punch for the oval under his nose
1/2", 1 3/8", 1 1/2" Circle Punch for the body and buttons
I used the retired 3/4" x 15/16" Oval Punch, but you could use the 1" circle punch for the feet.
I drew the nose free hand and then cut it out. I used dimensionals on the back of Olaf to attach him to the card. Also, on his mouth and the oval under his nose. The white on his buttons was put on using the chalk marker. You can use any stamp set you would like on the inside of this card to make it a birthday, congratulations, get well, really anything you would like.
If you have any questions on how to make this card, please feel free to contact me and I will help you.. It is really easy to assemble. What takes time is the punching of all the pieces. When I made this I made 4 of them at the same time. That way I have extras on hand when I need them.
Thank you for stopping by today!
