Aloha Ladies, Joscie rhymes with Bossy here!
Today I’d like to share how easy it is to create custom cut cards with Tay’s Custom Cutter Shapes. I selected the A1-4Bar_BoutiqueFold.GSD file and opened it in my Craft Robo program that came with my Quickutz Silhouette Cutter. This is what it looks like:
I chose a piece of 12×12 American Crafts double sided patterned cardstock and trimmed down to 9×12. I adhered it to the cutting mat and rolled over the top with a brayer to be sure the paper was adhered well to the mat.
I made sure I had the proper plunger tip (red 0.3mm) for my paper style and fed the mat into the cutter. I select Cut and make sure the paper type is selected and click cut.
When the cutter stops, remove the cutting mat and remove your cut items.
Fold in half and add your embellishments. For the fist card, I punched a large scalloped oval with my Marvy punch from the scrap piece of the AC Cardstock. I added yellow thicker letters to say hi! I and mounted these to the card front with foam dimensional adhesive.
I layered two Making Memories flowers and mounted with a Stampin’ Up! Corduroy Brad and a foam adhesive.
For the second card, I punched an oval and a scalloped oval with Stampin’ Up! Punches. I cut one out of the AC Cardstock and one out of a printed piece of Miss Mint’s Jingle Bell Rock Paper.
I layered the pieces with foam tape and finished with Making Memories tiny alpha stickers to say Thanks.
I hope you’ll try this out if you have a craft cutter!
Let me know if you have any questions and happy cutting!
