How to make your punched card
Cut your red card to 148x70mm, a Tonic Guillotine is an ideal way to cut accurately.
On one side of the red card use the Tonic Contemporary Snowflake Punch Item 855e to make a repeat pattern on the other side of the card with the snowflake punch, in this example it’s 5.5cm between centres.
On the other side of the red card use the Tonic Ribblet punch (border system in photo optional) punch along the card at equal intervals between 30 and 35mm between the centre of each punch. Then affix the coloured brads into each of the holes.
Apply the brads in the holes created by the Tonic Ribblet punch and weave in ribbon as shown before securing each end of the ribbon on the back of the card with glue.
Glue the coloured card to the open side of the white card. Then align the punched out snowflakes on the card and pierce through the centre of the snowflake and through into the card using a Tim Holtz Retractable Craft Pin item 256e. Using a foam mat or a piece of scrap cardboard for backing to push the pin into will make it easier.
Using the small coloured brands, secure the snowflakes to the card and the card is complete!
