card making: one tool, three uses

What do these three card designs have in common?  (Well besides being made by me, ya smarty pants!)  They were created using one particular tool that is a favorite in my crafting space these days: the chevron border punch.  Here are three card designs demonstrating how to use the tool in different ways.

For this design I used the punched out arrows to create a window and adhere a sheet of clear plastic behind it with some foam mounting tape.  I put in colorful hole punches to create confetti that can float around behind the arrows.

For this design I adhered some of the punched out arrow shapes from the first design using repositionable adhesive, sprayed the white cardstock with some misting paint, and then peeled the arrows off.

For this design, I used the punch tool on different colored cardstock and then used them to fill in arrows on a white piece of cardstock.

Happy crafting!
