I love making cards!

I love being able to make my own cards, but like most of you, there never seems to be enough hours in the day for me to do all that I would like to do. Once again, these were Pinterest inspired cards.cardcardMaterials Used

Because I have never taken time to learn print and cut, I do things my way. :~) I cut the white paper to the size I wanted, designed the saying in KNK Studio and exported the image to word. I selected a 4×6 paper size in word and then printed the saying on the paper. I then placed the paper on my mat and selected the right hand corner as the origin and cut the hearts. In order to make the large heart I just made a big heart, filled it randomly with little hearts, moved them to where I wanted them and then deleted the large heart. Because these cards only involve cutting a design and printing them you can make a bunch quickly. The files are below. Enjoy!

  1. Sweet cards Nancy. Don’t feel bad, I have not taken the time to learn Print and cut yet either. I may try your method, I need to center words on on invitation I am cutting and I have been stumped as to how to get it properly centered. ~Diane

  2. Another trick is to print what you want to print on the invitation on a regular sheet of paper. Then take your die cut invitation and position it on top of what you have printed and secure it with repositional tape. Then run it through the printer again and it should come out perfect. Not sure how many invites you have to make but it does work.

  3. Some more of your wonderful handiwork on cards!! I always enjoy your creativity. Thanks!
