Instructions:

  1. Begin by creating your card layers, for the base of the card I have used a 7” x 7” watercolour card blank. Next a black card layer measuring 6 ¾“ x 6 ¾“, followed by a kraft card layer measuring 6 ½“ x 6 ½“ and finally a white watercolour card layer measuring 6 ¼“ x 6 ¼“. To the centre of the white watercolour card layer, cut a circle aperture using a die. The circle I have cut measures 4¼ “ across. You can, of course adjust these measurements to suit your design.
  2. Select your sentiments for your card, here I have used stamps from Altenew Dearest Friend Stamp Set. Pop the Kraft card square in to your Load ‘N’ Fold, align your sentiment stamp to the centre. Bring the lid down to pick up your stamp. Apply a generous amount of black archival ink to your stamp and press down the folder to transfer the image. Sprinkle over clear embossing powder and use a heat tool to set.
  3. Next, choose your image to sit at the bottom of your card. I have used one of the flower stamps from the same set as the sentiments. Stamp the image on to watercolour card, as you did in Step 2, and again – heat emboss to set the image.
  4. Begin colouring in your chosen image using watercolour pencils, lay down an initial base colour, take a fine brush and add water to make the pencils react.
  5. Continue adding layers to your stamped image, create tone by adding highlights and lowlights. Dry your layers in between so you have control over your colour intensity.
  6. the one daisy. Cut around the daisy and repeat the process. For this size card I have used eleven additional daisies’.
  7. Once you have all your images cut and ready, you can begin assembling the card. Place the main image to the bottom of the circle and arrange the daisy’s around the circle cut out. Always test your lay out before committing. When you find an arrangement, you are happy with; stick the images in place using foam pads to lift them from the card base. Raise the main image slightly above the rest of the chain to add extra depth.
  8. Use double sided tape to mat and layer to your card blank to finish.

Advanced Project:

  1. Create a cute little gift box using files already available on your Scan N Cut. For building projects, I tend to work in Brother Canvas Workspace, however you can just as easily create directly on your machine.

    I have included a file of the box in this project (attached), alternatively why not try out making your own.

    Align four 5cm x 5cm squares down the mat area. Next to the second box down add 2 more 5cm x 5cm squares. Add tabs to the two squares, the polygon files make great tabs. Add a final tab to the bottom edge of the fourth box down.

    Group the images and weld to remove the overlapping lines. Finally, and a score line along where the box will be folded, not forgetting the tabs.

    Load your mat, with your kraft card ready and either cut – or if you have been working on Canvas send the file to your machine.
  2. Once the machine finishes cutting, remove your mat and gently lift your box from the mat. Take some time to fold along the scorelines created to form your box. Before gluing, add your sentiment to the front of the box, just as you did with your card.

    Add glue to the tabs and hold the tabs in place for 20 seconds just so the glue takes. Leave the one tab unglued, this forms the lid of your box.
  3. To finish, create another daisy, in the same way as you did for your card, and glue this to the lid of your box.
