Punch art banjo, with a Bluegrass theme …

Hi, and welcome to my blog.  

A quick post from me today as I’m busy on a project where I’m experimenting with some new products … well, new to me anyway!  More on that soon.

So here’s a punch art card I made recently for a friend from Louisiana, USA…

Banjo-punch art birthday

I used my computer to make the greeting so I could include her nickname – Bayou Gurl.  She was hoping to get a banjo for her birthday – I sure hope she got one.  My nephew plays banjo in a local Bluegrass band in Liverpool – the Loose Moose String Band – his easy style is sure to have your toes tappin’ in no time!

I went a bit literal with the Bluegrass theme, and stamped blue grass …

I was so excited to discover the waste punched out pieces from the spiral edge punch were just the right size to use as the banjo keys! Perfect!

I used several different sizes of circles to punch out pieces to form the banjo. The rest I cut freehand using my paper snips.

And for those of you wondering, it’s an A5 sized card, using a whole sheet of cardstock, scored and folded in half.
