The after-Valentine’s Day post and FREE FILE!

I hope everyone had a wonderful Valentine’s Day!

I love free files, don’t you?  Click on the first photo below to get the card layout in MTC and KNK Studio formats.

I worked in my craft room most of the day Sunday and made Valentine cards for my loved ones.  As a bonus, my daughter’s friend asked me to make some for her family as well so I got to make a whole variety and spend a lot more time crafting.  A special request for ‘guy cards’ was my challenge.  I started out by creating my card layout in KNK Studio and then copied and pasted it into MTC.

Here is the card I made for my DH:


A homemade card and a store bought treat just clashed for me so I decided to make him a Valentine sweet and because he is my chocolate fiend he got this large peanut butter cup (which I just couldn’t figure out a way to make on my KNK):

I’ve used many different recipes for peanut butter bars, but this one is our family favorite:  Cream together 1/2 c melted butter, 1/2 c brown sugar, 1 tsp vanilla extract, 2 c peanut butter and then add 2 1/2 c powdered sugar.  For the chocolate coating I use 2 tbsp peanut butter and a 12 oz bag of milk chocolate chips melted together.  Yummy!

And here you’ll see all the cards I made – with a little variety and an ‘especially for guys’ theme.  On the left is the front of the card and on the right is the inside of the card.  All of these pieces (except the tickets and flowers) were cut on my KNK Maxx using MTC.

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.

  1. I am so glad that you posted this! I am still making the theme….just wedding relatd. Thank you

    • You’re welcome, always happy to hear (and see) how our KNK/MTC files are being used. Would love to see an example when you have one – if you can share.

    • You’re welcome, hope you can use it. I guess I forgot to mention that the card is 6 x 6, 6 x 12 open, so the design was made specifically for that size, but the components can be resized to fit any card you’re making.

  2. Your cards are beautiful! Thanx for sharing. Your peanut butter recipe is making me hungry tho. I know if I made them they wouldn’t last long.

    • Thank you! I don’t think I can look at another peanut butter bar for a little while – maybe even a few months! The recipe made about 4 times what was on the plate for my DH. There might have been a few belly aches in my household right after Valentine’s day. LOL

    • Thank you for your kind words, Judy! I think they did love them. My husband stashes all the cards I’ve given him over the years in his dresser – I think that’s so funny, but so very sweet too…
