Love is in the Air

This card is perfect for both a wedding or anniversary. I saw a card like it on a site where it was made with a stamp and embossing powder. I love embossing powder, it was the “magical thing” that hooked me into making cards and eventually getting a KNK.  But I do not like having to buy stamps every time I want to make something different. So I tried to create the same look using my KNK and vinyl.

Materials used

paper

vinyl

Settings

KNK Maxx

Red capped blade

speed 350

force 46 vinyl 110 card stock

I purchased a bunch of card blanks in various sizes because i make a lot of cards and it saves a couple of steps. So I used an A6 white card blank and then cut a piece of silver card stock slightly smaller that the A6 card front and then  cut a piece of white slightly smaller than the silver. I usually cut the card fronts on my Maxx. I get 4 fronts from a 12×12 piece and they are all perfect. I applied the silver card front to the card base, then the white.  Then I cut the vinyl and applied it to the front of the card using clear transfer tape.  It really went very quickly. I like the way it turned out. I wish I would have put money in a jar every time I saved money by using it instead of buying that stamp, punch, etc.  :O)

  1. Very pretty card. I have used vinyl a lot of times in place of stamps and computer generated sentiments for the inside. Stamps can get very expensive. Good job and thanks for sharing.
