Making Cards with The Works All In One Tool

Hello WeR fans! It’s Eva on the blog today, sharing a card trio using only ONE tool.

The All in One Tool -The Works – it is your perfect craft companion. With just one tool you can: cut, score, stamp and create: envelopes, tabs, tags, pom-poms, tassels, banners and bows! I love mine!

For today’s project I am doing a set of cards using the lovely This Is Family line from Pebbles.

One of the coolest features of this tool is the stamping plate. It is magnetic so you can remove it is you don’t want to use it and the tool comes with two magnets to hold your paper in place while you stamp. I used a “Thanks” sentiment in several colors and instead of moving the stamp I simply slide the paper up or down following the scoring lines. Very easy!

I trimmed my paper like a tag using the Tag Guide and punched a hole in the middle using the Hole Punch included on this tool.

A few embellishments and my card was done!

For my next card I decided to create a few tassels. The tool has 4 pegs and several holes so you can create tassels in different heights. If you want your tassel to be fuller simply turn your yarn around a few more times.

I completed my card with a fussy cut image decorated with watercolors.

Finally, my third card was very simple. I used a tag and created a bow with the same pegs as the tassel. Perfectly tied bows all the time! You can use ribbon, twine or thread and create a variety of bows.

These sweet cards needed a lovely envelope so I used the Envelope Chart to determine the paper size I needed to use and using the Envelope Guide I scored all the lines.

Next, I used the Envelope Punch and Corner Punch to finish my work. Lovely envelops in minutes!
