Flower Wrap Card

Hi There fellow KnK-ers!

I thought I’d revisit the style of card I created for the Snow Scene Card I posted here but change it up for a spring/summer look, so instead of snowy buildings and trees I’ve opted for some bright sunny flowers. The card base has a cut away section and wraps around the card insert which then both become the front of your card. The cut file is available at the end of the post 🙂

These are the Materials I used:

These are the Zing Settings I used:

  • Blade = Standard
  • Blade Height = 25 post-it notes
  • Offset = 0.30
  • Speed = 10
  • Force =  100 (75 for cutmates)
  • Passes = 1

Pic 1. Here are all of the elements within the cut file, the 2 green layers were cut from Smooth & Silky Cardstock which is nice and sturdy and all of the other elements were cut from Cutmates which is great for more intricate cuts:

Pic 2. Using wet glue to give me some wiggle room time, I glued the 2 green layers together and popped the flower heads into place. While I had the glue out, I also glued the 3 sun layers together:

Pic 3. I flipped the card over and added one strip of double sided tape along the left edge of the back inside the card:

Pic 4. I folded my insert and lined up the fold line with the left edge of the double sided tape:

Pic 5. You can now fold your card base and add your sun to the top of the insert layer with a 3D foam pad:

Pic 6. With a few enamel dots popped into the middle of the flowers for some extra dimension, my card is finished:
