In today’s video blog, I want to show a how to make handmade cards with paper punches that are quick and easy! These are wonderful spring cards you can send for Easter – and only take a few minutes to make! Check it out in my short video.

The Rainbow Glimmer paper does most of the work here!

What do you need for this simple design?

  • a flower paper punch
  • just one greeting stamp and ink
  • patterned paper
  • ribbon
  • cardstock

Try making these with both punches and dies for the circles and flowers if you like…just about anything will work!
