WELCOME and thank you for stopping by TeamKNK! Today’s tutorial is brought to you by Tammy from Beyond Measure.

Todays’ feature is a Pop-up Father’s Day card. Tammy combined two different pop up card mechanisms for a fun ‘tada!’ effect upon opening the card:)  The card was created in the amaZing  Make the Cut Software and cut on the over the top KNK Zing electronic cutting machine. Be sure to watch the video to check out the two pop up features inside the card!

Here’s the link to the Team KNK Pop up card video tutorial! Enjoy!


And here is a link to the cutting file for the card: Father Day’s pop up card in MTC, KNK, PDF, and SVG formats

Thank you so very much for stopping by–we hope to see you here again! The Make the Cut pop up  mechanism file is post below. 🙂 Until next time…HUGE {{{HUGS}}} and be blessed


Apocalypse Father’s Day Card

With Father’s day right around the corner, I decided to make my dad a card this year. Considering the amount of “zombie” stories in the news, I feel it’s only necessary I provide the old man with a Zombie Apocalypse survival kit! (Really just a gift card to Harbor Freight).

For the outside of this card, I wanted to imitate one of those MRE type sardine cans. I laminated a piece of chipboard with some silver decal vinyl. Then, I cut the dad in gasmask / tie logo out of black wall vinyl, since it has a nice matte finish. This happens to match the green WorldWin cardstock, nicely. Next, I laminated some white WorldWin cardstock with the same silver vinyl I used on the chipboard.  This gave the outside a neat metallic appearance.

On the inside, I used a regular pen in my KNK Zing to write a little note. I’ll attach the giftcard below this 🙂

I designed my card in KNK Studio. I created the gas mask, collar and can opener using Node editing. The font for “DAD” is called Ideal_ie (comes with KNK Studio). I then copied and pasted my artwork over to Make The Cut and cut all my pieces out on the KNK Zing.
