Handmade Card with the Hexagon Clear Cut Punch

Hello We R Fans! Kimberly here today with a card made with a fantastic new tool! The Clear Cut Punch is an anywhere punch. Meaning, if you like something in the middle of your patterned paper, no problem! And as a card maker, the possibilities for these punches are endless! I started off basic today, but I cannot wait to use these more and more!

For this card, I used the Clear Cut Punch Hexagon. The punches come apart into three pieces. All the pieces are magnetic, allowing easy alignment for perfect punching.

On this piece of Pebbles patterned paper, I wanted to give shape to the words “love.” I started by placing the teal guide over the image I desired. Then, I placed the base of the punch underneath that, so that the patterned paper is sandwiched between the base and teal guide. As you are doing this, if the paper slides, no big deal. It is easy to maneuver the paper between the two pieces. Which makes this type-A girl very happy!

When everything is aligned, place the top of the punch over the rest. The magnets will help the punch click together. After it clicks together, punch away!

How fun to add a unique shape to these patterned papers! I punched several images and chose my favorite to place on my card.

One extra finishing touch I added was washi tape, with the ends notched with the Washi Chomper. Another new tool that will not leave my desk!
