After returning home I was inspired to create some cards to send give to friends along with some treats we brought home and it dawned on me that I could turn some of my digital drawings and hand lettering into ScanNCut cut files thanks to ScanNCutCanvas. To download these free cut files click here.
Watch the video tutorial here or follow the instructions below:
1 piece of light blue-green 8.5’’x11’’ Cardstock
2 pieces of white 8.5’’x11’’ Cardstock, cut to 8.5’’x 5.5” and folded in half
Embossing Pen (optional)
Black Pen (optional)
- From the free download, load “Card Front” onto your ScanNCut. Place one sheet of light blue-green 8.5’’x11’’ Cardstock onto a standard mat and load it into the the machine. Cut out 4 of “Card Front.”
2. From the free download, load “tropical leaves” and “aloha” onto your ScanNCut. Remove one side of the protective covering on the silicone stamp material and place it onto a standard mat and load it into the machine. Cut out each of the leaves and aloha out of the stamp material.
3. Decide which color ink to use for each leaf and then mount one leaf at a time onto the stamping block, pounce ink on it, and stamp it onto each of the card fronts. Repeat for each of the leaves. (Note: be sure to wipe off any excess ink from the stamp block so it doesn’t transfer onto the card.)
4. Sprinkle clear embossing powder over the leaves on the card front and tap off any extra powder. Use a heat gun to melt the embossing powder and allow the card front to cool. Repeat for all the card fronts.
5. Center mount each of the card fronts onto each of the white cards with adhesive.
6. Place “aloha” onto the stamping block, ink it with embossing ink and stamp it into the center of the card. Repeat for each card.
7. Sprinkle gold embossing powder over “aloha” and tap off any extra powder. Use a heat gun to melt the embossing powder and allow the card front to cool. Repeat for all the card fronts.
8. (Optional) If desired add faux stitch marks with a black pen around the edge of the front of the card. An embossing pen and gold embossing powder can also be used to give it some more shimmer.
I also whipped up some envelope liners too. The cut file is also included with the others.
