Frond of You – Print & Cut with Amanda

September 11, 2019

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!
