Fiskars' new scalloped punches make mass producing holiday cards a snap! Here I have created two cards showing different creative ways to incorporate these designs into your holiday cards. These are purposely designed for mass production. The first card, Santa, looks like a labor-intensive paper piecing, but it's actually just a compilation of punches! Photo cards are very popular and with a little creative cropping, you can turn a scalloped punch into themed photo corners! And the punch doubles as a quick, cute gift embellishment.
Santa Believe Card
1. Punch all punches shown in photo.
2. To create Santa's hat brim, punch a scalloped square. Feed it back into punch and punch off as shown.
3. Add chalk detail to nose and cheeks.
4. Assemble all punches as shown.
5. Mount onto patterned paper rectangle on card base.
6. If desired, punch a couple snowflakes to hang from string bow around card by punching 1/8" hole at center and knotting string below.
7. Add stripe paper strip and add printed "believe".
8. Glue small pom pom at end of hat.
Holiday Photo Card
1. Print photo and text onto photo paper.
2. Mount onto double-sided patterned cardstock.
3. Punch scalloped square and trim into four equal parts and add around photo.
4. Punch scalloped square and tie string around scallop to create gift. Adhere with foam adhesive square.
