Hello lovelies!! I hope your week is going well! Thanks for stopping by to read this post!
Did you know that Ink Road has digital cut files?! What?! Amazing – I know!
For these cards, I used the Frond of You cut file. Keep reading to see how it works!
After purchasing the cut file and unzipping, pull each file into your cutting machine’s software. I copy and pasted them onto one artboard. I modified the cut files to have an offset (a white border around each of the “stamps”). I also mirrored some of the leaves. The photo below doesn’t show the artboard that has the “What a lovely face” sentiment – but I also put an offset around one and a rectangle border around the other one. Don’t forget registration marks!
Note: If you need more detailed instructions, I’m happy to do a video tutorial or an in depth blog post on this process. Please just leave a comment on this blog post with your request!
I printed it on 80 lb cardstock and then loaded it into my Cameo machine.
I grabbed some patterned “wood” paper and cut it down to 4″ x 5.25″.
Using Versamark watermark and my anti-static tool, I stamped 2 leaves from the Frond of You stamp set.
I heat embossed them with clear embossing powder. This is the result after embossing and attaching to my white A2 card:
I put some 3D foam adhesive on the backs of my leaves and placed them onto my card front.
I doubled up on some 3D foam squares for my sentiment (i.e. I put 2 squares on top of each other to create double the dimension!)
I grabbed a scrap piece of black cardstock and cut it down to a rectangle. I used my corner punch to create rounded edges. I glued my sentiment to the black cardstock. I then adhered it to my card.
I used some glue (that dries clear) to adhere my Gina Clear Bubbles.
For my next card, I used different patterned paper. Here are a few photos of the process I took:
I used 2 of these Isabelle Peach embellishments.
Here are some close-ups of the finished cards!
