The new catalogue is only hours away and there are some great new products in there. But before it’s launched, here is one final project using my favourite Designer Series Paper from the retiring catalogue: Confetti Celebration. Like all the other retiring DSP, Confetti Celebration is available right now at a great price!
The envelope punch board is great and other than making envelopes, it can be used to make a variety of 3D projects such as boxes, crackers and treat trays. The punch can also be used to make bows, ties and file tabs to adorn your projects, plus there’s even a corner rounding punch included!
I recently made a set of cards using the envelope punch board, where the envelope is part of the card. The card is secured with a belly band, then all four flaps open to reveal the inside of the card. Combined with the great colours of the Confetti Celebration DSP, these cards are a lot of fun.
These cards are made from a 6” x 6” sheet of DSP with a 3½” by 3½” sheet of Whisper White cardstock glued to the inside. I used the Banner Banter stamp set and coordinating punch to make some banners for the corner of the card – glued onto some baker’s twine. I only glued the top of the banner to the bakers twine to allow the banners a bit of freedom to move. The sentiment friend to friend is from the Teeny Tiny Sentiments stamp set. This stamp set is another of those that is so useful to have around as it contains so many great words and sayings (as the name of the stamp set suggests!).
The belly band features a stamp from the old Cute & Curly stamp set with the coordinating Curly Label Punch. Something from the current Tag Talk stamp set and coordinating Label Bracket Punch would work just as well here or even the Six-Sided Sampler and coordinating Hexagon Punch!
Be quick if you want any of the retiring items before they disappear from the current catalogue!
