The guys at Fiskars very generously sent up a couple of the new lever punches to have a play with. I have to say these new lever punches are a great design, very, very easy to push and a great little flap underneath that keeps all the punchouts in a little cavity so they don't end up flying all over the place!
These are the 3 cards I have made so far.
Maddison was adding some stickers to her school book and left the negative part of the sticker sheet lying around, so a perfect opportunity to make some little butterfly stickers!! and I turned them into a card for a girlfriends birthday.
Even half butterfly's can be used on the edge of the card.
Draw some little black dots so they look like they have been flying around.
I also included a couple inside as well.
The next card I started by punching my butterfly's out of the thick silver foil that comes on the top of a milo tin when you first open it. Added on a bit of thick double sided tape in the middle allows the little wings to be lifted up for some dimension.
I used the photo corners to layer the cardstock. The flower is made by using the circle squeeze punches layered on top of each other and secured with a big white brad.
The next card is also using the corner punch but by taking off the corner guide it allows you to punch side by side along a line to create the notched pattern and then using the positive and the negative to make a pocket type card to slide a ticket or some scratchies in.
And this is what it looks like close up, I added a swipe of ink around the edges as well.
These are another great tool made by Fiskars, thanks guys for the opportunity to play with them. :0)
