Sometimes we just need a fast card – so how about we make a simple card with paper punches? You might not think it looks like a FAST card, but it is, because I used some scraps!


Isn’t it the BEST when we can use up all those bits and bobs we save that clutter up our craft spaces? They really do come in handy!

On today’s card the dragonflies are made with a scrap piece of water coloured paper I made ages ago!

So it was just a snap of my fingers to punch out my dragonflies, stamp my greeting and add some glue!!

Take a peek!

A simple and classy design made with watercoloured scraps

Well I do have to ‘fess up a teensy bit. 😆

The greeting is embossed. (But you don’t have to and it will look pretty awesome!)

This greeting is one of my faves. The large script, the cheery saying! Who wouldn’t love to get this in the mail?

It has the BEST title, Good Feelings! Don’t you agree?

Here’s another simple card to make in minutes using it in a totally different way!

Let me give you the supplies and measurements to make this one if you like.

Make a Simple Card with Paper Punches

What supplies do you need?

Cuttin’ It Up!
  • Daffodil Delight – 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″, scored at 4 1/4
  • Calypso Coral – 4″ x 5 1/4″
  • Basic White – one piece 3 3/4″ x 5″, inside piece 4″ x 5 1/4″
  • Scraps of pre-watercoloured paper (my colours are Daffodil Delight, Calypso Coral and Flirty Flamingo)
Let’s Make It!
  1. Stamp greeting in Daffodil Delight ink onto the left side of the 3 3/4″ x 5″ Basic White panel. Glue to piece of Calypso Coral and to the front of the folded Daffodil Delight cardbase. Glue the remaining piece of Basic White to the inside of the card.
  2. Punch out two dragonflies (the punch will do the large and small one at the same time). Attach a large dimensional to the middle of the large dragonfly and adhere in place. Use liquid glue to affix the small one.
  3. Add a few Iridescent Rhinestones to embellish their spines.
