Slowly, slowly, slowly, I am learning how to use my KNK Force. It is an awesome machine!! Like Nancy said recently, it is very quiet. Yesterday I used it to cut some files I had purchased from My Scrap Chick. The file I used is from the set named Shirley, Goodness, and Mercy. Three cute chicks. I used Goodness to make a birthday card. I like the play on words. Settings: (keep in mind that I am very new to the Force and although these settings worked for me, they might not be the ideal settings)
Machine: KNK Force
Blade: Red Cap Standard Material
Blade Tension: 2 for cardstock, 1 for scrapbook paper
Starting Depth/Ending Depth: 60 for cardstock, 40 for scrapbook paper
Cutting Speed: 30
Blade Offset: 0.25
The files from My Scrap Chick are very well done. I used the SVG files, taking them into Make The Cut and exporting them as separate files according to the color/paper I was going to use for those particular pieces. When I had assembled Goodness, I scanned her and then used her ‘photo’ on the inside of the card. I found a background I liked on the Internet to use for the front of the card.
This was a fun card to make and I intend to use Shirley and Mercy to make cards also.
