Hey y’all!!!!! Stephanie Vittorio here from Coffee Stamps Chaos to share a fun 4th of July card using Cardstock Warehouse cardstock, SVGs and a ScanNCut to create a fun, patriotic card!
This project evolved from another idea I had, but there were a few struggles with my original idea so I went with this. There was some resetting of my cut settings, blade depth, pressure, etc before finally getting it correct, but I got it right and it was smooth sailing from there!
For this project you will need:
- Brother Scan N Cut (or other electronic die cutting machine)
- America Land that I Love SVG
- Zig 2-Way Glue Pen
- Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive
- Advanced Tape Glider
- Cardstock sizing for this card:
- Silver 3 ¾ x 5”
- Red 4 x 5 ¼”
- Blue 5 ½ x 8 ½”
- Brother Scan N Cut settings
- Blade Depth - 6
- Cut Pressure - 2
- Cut Speed - 1
I started by cutting my card base and panel layers to the sizes listed above. I then adhered the base layered together using my Advanced Tape Glider. Next, I cut my sentiment and some embellishments with my Brother ScanNCut machine. You can see my cut settings above.
I had previously cut the America SVG in several colors, so I had those ready to use. I glued those layers together using a Zig Glue Pen to create thicker multicolored layers using a Zig 2-way Glue Pen.
Next, I cut and adhered the “Land that I love” layers together, to create the banner for the bottom of the card.
I had a negative from the previously cut lettering, so I used that to align the “America” layer on my Sparkle Collection Silver layer for the card front.
Then I added the previously assembled banner for the bottom of the card using Nuvo Glue. Finally, also with Nuvo glue, I added stars I had cut previously for the final touch on this fun card!
