Hello fellow KnK-ers!
Today I will use one Cut File (supplied at the end of the post) to create 3 different card looks armed with just my Zing and a few basic supplies.
These are the Materials I used:
- My trusty KnK Zing
- Make the Cut Software
- Worldwin Colormates Smooth & Silky Cardstock
- Assorted card, vellum, thread and a button from my stash
These are the Zing Settings I used:
- Blade = Standard
- Blade Height = 25 post-it notes
- Offset = 0.30
- Speed = 10
- Force = 100 (65 on vellum and lightweight card)
- Passes = 1
Card 1: This is a super quick yet effective card to whip up when you need a card asap.
I lined up one of the oval shapes onto the card base in Make the Cut, I chose one of the fonts to form the word ‘Hello’ then cut both pieces from some kraft card:
I folded my card in half then placed the ‘Hello’ inside the oval window and glued it to the inside of the card:
Card 2: I used white vellum for my large solid (sandwich) piece to add some softness to this card but coloured vellum or acetate could be used for different looks.
From yellow card I cut the card base, the extra flower outline piece, the label outline shape and the word ‘Mum’. From vellum I cut the large solid layer and the larger label shape:
I glued my vellum to the back of the front outline pieces:
These pieces can now be flipped over and glued to the card base sandwiching the vellum between the layers, this ensures that the inside of your card is as neat as the outside:
As I didn’t create a window in the card base this time I can add my sentiment to my label shape without it looking messy on the inside of the card:
Card 3: Inside the cut file you will find smaller solid (sandwich) pieces which allow you to use different colours for your flower and leaf pieces:
From black card I cut the card base, the extra flower outline piece and the banner outline shape. From pink card I cut the solid flower piece and the larger banner shape. From green card I cut the solid leaf pieces:
I glued my coloured pieces to the back of the front outines then added a sentiment to my banner:
I flipped my flower piece over and glued it to the card base and sandwiched it between the black card layers to keep my card neat inside and out. I added my banner to the card with 3D foam tape:
The middle of my flower was calling out for a button, as I’m not using vellum here it won’t show through:
Negative Pieces: Do you usually throw your negative pieces away? How about saving them to make some tags? Here is the tag cut file I used:
