With all those options you can create unique combinations each and every time you use your Fuse. Let’s take a look at one of these tags in action on a greeting card project.
To create this card, you’ll first cut light blue cardstock to 7” x 10”. Fold in half and crease the folding creating a 5” x 7” card base. You can get a crisp crease by using a bone-folding tool. Place the folded card horizontally on your work surface so the fold is at the top.
To build the background of the card, first punch a 1” x 7” long strip of light pink paper using the Scalloped Sentiment Border Punch.
Then, cut a section of coordinating patterned paper with thick stripes to 2” x 7”. Adhere border strip to one edge of your patterned paper and adhere to your card front approximately ¾” from the bottom edge. Adhere 1 ½” x 7” deep plum patterned paper strip directly above. Add a sentiment sticker to the lower edge of the card.
Then, using your Fuse and tag embellishment, create a tag with cream cardstock and raspberry ink.
Adhere to card where the two patterned papers meet.
Punch 3 flowers from raspberry colored cardstock using your Oopsie Daisy Squeeze Punch.
Use a paper-piercing tool to poke a hole through the center of each flower. Stack the flowers and push a fabric-covered brad through the holes. Adjust the punched pieces to create a fuller looking flower before opening the brad prongs to secure the flowers in place.
Adhere to card using glue dots, then manipulate the petals to create dimension.
