It’s in the mail! Free Christmas Card file.

I’ve always altered/embellished a purchased card or made my own greeting cards from scratch. I love that my KNK die cutting machines allow me to explore and create in entirely new ways. They also significantly speed up the process!

I like clean and simple, and this card style adapted from a Pin fits my requirements perfectly. It uses our machines’ ability to write, emboss, and cut in a three step file.

I used a simple rounded rectangle for the reverse side of the card front. In some of the cards, it is simply card stock that shows through the ornament shape, but in others I used Christmas fabrics and then covered them with the rounded rectangle.

About Cuttin' with KNK (Michele)

I am the proud mother of 2 grown children, waiting for grandchildren some day. I've been married to my best friend since 1988. I have been crafting since I was a girl - I can't even remember a time when I wasn't creating something, and I've tried nearly everything. I discovered KNK in 2009 and have loved the company and its products ever since. The machines are so versatile and enhance my own creativity. It is rare that I make something without my KNKs.
