Last week’s Card & Cuppa project, this punch art dragon has a bit of twist.
I hold separate Card & Cuppa for Children projects during the summer holidays and usually design a separate project for them as well. This year, I decided that both the adult and children sessions should make the same project.
The cafe where I hold the sessions for Children has a theme of activities for each week of the holidays and it was ‘Mystical’. This is where the dragon comes in.
I also couldn’t decide on which one I liked, so I made both!
I’d seen similar projects on Pinterest, but they all used Ovals, which we no longer have in punch format. So I did my own take on the designs using punches we have available.
To create the body pattern I used Playful Backgrounds in either Granny Apple Green or Gorgeous Grape.
The clouds are from Lift Me Up and again stamped tone-on-tone in Balmy Blue.
After a bit of cutting out to create the neck piece, several punches are used to create the head, eye socket and nose.
Then it’s smaller circles in Whisper White and Basic Black for the eyes and nose and Classic Label for the fangs. The scales are from the new four-petal flower, cut into four.
It was then a case of putting everything together and attaching the head with Dimensionals.
An optional sentiment from Happy Birthday Gorgeous was the finishing touch.
Both the Card & Cuppa (Adults) and Card & Cuppa for Children attendees created fabulous projects.
