A neighbor recently asked me to make a card for a little boy who was recovering from surgery. When I asked her to tell me what he likes, she mentioned Elmo. Well, I certainly didn’t have any stamps for that but knew I could probably piece together something using punches. What do you think? Elmo?



Design Notes for Punch Art Elmo Card:

Well, to be honest, Elmo is really a combination of punches and die cuts:

  • Hair: Lakeside Framelits, Basic Black card stock
  • Face: Layering Ovals Framelits, Pumpkin Pie card stock. I also used the Subtles Embossing folder to give it a little texture.
  • Mouth, (Trimmed) Layering Ovals Framelit, Real Red card stock
  • Ears: 1″ Circle Punch, Pumpkin Pie card stock
  • Nose: Layering Circles Framelits, Pumpkin Pie card stock (I laid the card stock on the Pumpkin Pie ink pad to darken it.)

Since green is the little guy’s favorite color, I used Call Me Clover card stock for the background and embossed it with the Seaside Embossing folder.


On the inside, I used Real Red ink and the En Route stamp set.
