Snow Scene Card

Hello there fellow KnK-ers!

Today’s the day that I start to get organised for the festive season ahead so I’ve made my first Christmas card of the year, I will be ready this year, lol!

It was a little odd trying to get into the festive spirit while the sun was shining outside so I looked around on the internet for some inspiration for today’s card. I found a few ideas that I liked and set about to creating my card incorporating some of them, the cut file is available at the end of the post 🙂

Materials:

Settings:

  • Blade = Standard
  • Blade Height = 25 post-it notes
  • Offset = 0.30
  • Speed = 10
  • Force = 80
  • Passes = 1

Below are the pieces you will need to cut out with your chosen KNK cutter to recreate today’s card. I cut the card base in white to resemble snow and cut my insert in dark blue to give the effect of a night time sky:

The picture below shows where to apply your adhesive, fold along your perforated line then place your adhesive next to your fold on the right hand side:

Next, fold your insert and line it up with the adhesive then press it into place:

Now that your card is assembled, you can decorate it to your hearts content!

Here’s how my finished card looks:

I decorated my card by adding some mini gems to look like stars in the sky. I printed my sentiment onto some white card then layered it with some of the blue insert paper and popped it onto my card with 3d foam pads. My card needed a little something to finish it off so I cut a snowflake, I added a larger gem to the middle then adhered it to the corner of my sentiment.

If you would like to see more projects that I have created with my Zing and access my free cut files you can find my blog here: www.birdscards.com

Merry Christmas from our house

Here are a couple of quick videos I made to help with using digital (printable) stamps or sentiments if you aren’t too familiar with them.
