Welcome to my ABC’s of Stampin’ series. We have reached the end of this alphabet series and I hope you have been inspired and learned some new things about stamping along the way. I’d love for you to leave me a comment and let me know if you had a favorite letter, tip, or project from this series. Today I am going to share a fun way to make zig zag edges using the envelope punch board (I absolutely love the versatility of this tool!!).
Each month I meet with a talented group of ladies to share cards, projects, techniques, and ideas. One of my team members named our group C3 (Creative Card Club). Last month Marisa shared a fun birthday card using the zig zag technique. (How perfect in seeing I had no idea what I was going to share for Z. LOL)
You need the Envelope Punch Board to create the zig zags on this card. Start by lining up your card with the tip of the score guide and punch. Slide your card over to the 1 1/2″ mark and punch again. Continue sliding over and punching each time at the 2 1/2, and 3 1/2 inch marks. Flip your card over and repeat for the bottom of the card. Punch at each point (score guide, 1 1/2, 2 1/2, 3 1/2). So easy!
Add 1 1/4 x 4 1/4 inch strips of DSP on the inside of the card along the top and bottom so it peeks through the zig zag on the front of the card. You can stamp and embellish any way you want. Here’s the finished card and stamped envelope to match.
I have great news for you if you don’t already own the Envelope Punch Board…It will be on sale for $15 (reg. $20) for 5 days starting tomorrow! I love my envelope punch board and use it for more than just custom envelopes. Here’s another zig zag card I made using this tool.
