When my delivery arrived I had some friends here so when I opened the box they dived on the punch - We spent quite a while punching out pumpkins in all colors.
It is convenient to use and comfortable in your hand - It likes paper but thick card is hard going. I don't use good card stock to cut up for embellishments
so that is not a problem - I think it would go through it but why try?
This punch has made a world of difference to making Halloween cards.
EK Success got it right when it redesigned its punch line, replacing traditional button punches with a sleek, easy to use modern construction. This Jack-o-Lantern design gives the crafter the ability to produce many different looks from just one punch. It is easy on the hands whether punching upside down or right side up. This type o punch construction provides a bonus feature, it locks and stores easily.
I have a few of these 3 in 1 punches from EK Success and Stampin' Up. Love all of them. I punched some pumpkins out of cardstock and got clear cuts. Perfect size for a lot of applications. Tip: When releasing the lock to open, hold the punch closed, so that the punch does not "jerk" open. It will last a long time if you take this precaution. The punch is about 2' thick.
I have many Halloween punches but this is one of my favorites. You can make the Jack-O-Lanterns any color combination even one that are non-traditional. The punch function well and is easy to use.
