using a craft punch to make greeting cards

Start with a corner punch to add a different dimension to your card making ideas. You can punch one, two or all four corners of your card to give it a different feel.

This half inch corner punch is one of my favorites to use because it makes your card look cleaner and sharp. I also like the quarter corner punch to make tags.
