Envelope Punch Board Camera Card!

I posted this camera card and other projects after I held my Envelope Punch Board Class HERE and I received an overwhelming amount of emails asking for a tutorial. It's your lucky day!

First you will need these supplies:

  • (1) Whisper White Cardstock circle cut with the 2 1/2" Circle Punch
  • (1) Small ticket cut with the Ticket Punch and Whisper White Cardstock
  • (2) Hearts cut with the Small Heart Punch and Soft Sky Cardstock
  • (2) Strips of Silver Foil measuring 3/4" x 5 1/2"
  • (1) Circle cut with the 3/4" Circle Punch and Basic Gray Cardstock. Add a Jumbo Rhinestone Jewel in the center
  • (1) Soft Sky Cardstock piece measuring 2" x 5 1/2" and embossed with the Decorative Dots Embossing Folder
Now you need to prepare the ring for the lens:

Cut a hole using the 1 3/4" Circle Punch and Basic Gray Cardstock shown above. Using the 2 1/2" Circle Punch, place the hole you created above inside the punch and center as shown below:

Layer and glue to your Whisper White Cardstock circle. Add the hearts and a sentiment:

Glue the two strips of Silver Foil to the underside of your embossed layer on both long sides:

Glue the ticket shape, the lens and the small circle as shown above and now it's time to prepare your card base. Start out with a piece of Basic Gray Cardstock measuring 3 3/4" x 11". Score in half at      5 1/2" and fold. Place the end with the fold towards the left on the 2" mark on your Envelope Punch Board and "punch":

Now take your cardstock piece and flip it so that the end without the fold is now on the left-hand side. Place the edge at 1 1/2" on your Envelope Punch Board and "punch":

Now take the side of the card base with the two notches and line up the deepest part of each notch where the blade will cut as shown in the diagram:

Cut off the two tabs on the outside leaving the center tab intact:

Now you have your "camera" card base layer and the layer you created in the first steps:

Glue the layers together and your camera card is complete!
