Are you ready for Galentine's Day?

 

Instagram Galentines

It's the day you can let all of the women in your life feel your love and support for them. Traditionally this happens on February 13th...but I think any day we can uplift each other would be a great day to celebrate!

 

 

 

 

 

 

If you need to whip up a quick sign or card here's what you'll need:

This project is simple, just put the cutfiles on your ScanNCut, resize if needed.  Place the correlating craft vinyl on your mat and you're good to start cutting them out. Don't forget that you need to do a "half-cut" when you work with vinyl so it will only cut through the vinyl and not the backing.

Once the vinyl pieces are cut, remove all the negative parts by peeling that vinyl off of the backing. Next, place the Grid Transfer Tape onto the vinyl, rub it with your spatula and then slowly peel it up.

Place the vinyl design down onto your canvas or card and rub over the design again. Slowly peel up the Grid Transfer Tape and you're finished.
