Trust that little voice in your head that says ‘Wouldn’t it be interesting if…’; And then do it.
With my Klic-N-Kut I’m only limited by imagination.
For the exterior of this A2 card I used a subtle piece of printed paper trimmed to 4.25 x 5.5″ and then added the October 31 die cut I created. I typed my my letters and numbers and created a box around them. Next I made a path with the letters and the box. Then I added an outline of the box and used the Ginsu Knife tool with to cut away any excess parts of the letters or numbers so that my shape would cut as just one singe unit. There is probably an easier way to do all this…but this method is how I’ve always done it and it takes me no time to complete these steps.
For the interior of the card I added more printed paper and made a simple square pop-up. That is, I made a little square from a 1 x 4.5″ strip of cardstock by scoring it on 4 sides short sides at 1/2″. Then I glued 2 sides of the square to the card and one side of the square to the back of the pumpkin. I created a sick pumpkin using 3 ellipses (2 are welded) and the third one just lays on top. I made Jack’s face by cutting through both pieces of pumpkin head and then made a black background. I was able to make the entire Jack-o-lantern using just the basic shapes tools with the exception of using the node edit tool to help create the jagged edge stem.
I keep my 15″ KNK Maxx settings at Overcut 15 & Trailing Blade 20 because I only use my machine to cut paper.
