Two ways to use cut-files on a card | Angela

Hello Friends!

It’s Angela back with you and I’m sharing my first project created with the gorgeous September kits!




Today assignment was to create cards using cut-files and including hand or machine stitching details. This is what I’ve done, using the beautiful September cut-files designed by Kim Watson. You can find these and more cut-files here, on the Hip Kit Club web site.




The first card is featuring the Butterfly. I cut the outline of the butterfly only on a piece of white Bazzil. This is the only paper I grabbed from August cardstock kit. Then, I Colored the butterfly using a mix of Magical by Lindy’s Stamp Gang in Coral and Gold, two of the three colors included in September Color Kit.




The base of the card is a cute floral by Dear Lizzy. I cut it slightly bigger than the white cardstock, so that it picks out just a little bit, giving a pop of color.


I decorated the card using little pieces, choosing mainly shades of pink and I added a stitching detail on the low left corner, using some thread I had in my stash. Real fact: my intention was to stitch XOXO, but I was too lazy to make the O !!!




The second card features the Teapot. Here, I used the cut-file as it is, resizing it to fit the dimension of a card. I cut it four times and I stacked each piece on the other to create depth and dimension.




I also created a tea bag holder using a die-cut from Truly Grateful collection by Paige Evans and a sticker from Pinkfresh Studio.




The steam of hearts that comes out from the teapot is made with Heidi Swapp stencil and a touch of Magical in coral added to dimensional paste.




That’s all for today my friends. Thank you so much for stopping by. I hope you liked the cards and have inspired you somehow to use cut-files together with Hip Kit Club kits!


Love, Angela
