Give Thanks

20151119-File Nov 19, 2 51 26 PM


When I check out Pinterest, sometimes I find the best ideas, like this card: stampin-up-pilgrim-card

There’s a cute french fry box there too. She made the card using stamping up punches. I thought how easy it would be to copy it, using the basic shapes in Make the Cut, especially since I don’t own the punches necessary to make this card.

So I welded and joined a couple of scalloped squares and easily drew the buckle and belt using the shapes in Make the Cut. I had this card put together in minutes.

I used the dots embossing on the collar and tied a ribbon and was good to go. I did try to tackle cutting out the belt buckle with glitter foam. I put the Zing on full force (158) and ran about 6 passes. Since the foam had sticky on the back, I didn’t put it on a mat, just ran it through the machine. The Zing didn’t quite cut all the way through, but I had enough that I could finish off the cuts with an exacto knife. I didn’t have a blue blade, which I think would’ve made a better difference, but for what I needed, what I had worked.

I also created a little greeting for the inside, using the brady bunch font that I downloaded from dafont.

By day, a teacher. By night, a geeky crafter. I have one hubby, 2 kids, and 4 dogs. I like to take pictures and like it even more when they don't suck. I use a KNK Maxx 24" machine, a Zing, and a Cameo.

  1. Adorable! I love how the KNK can substitute for a couple drawers full of punches. All of the money and space we can save by having one tool that can basically do it all.

  2. Very nice, I second Nancy’s comments! You demonstrated how economical and efficient these machines can help us to be.
