Congrats on your new home


One of our close friends recently purchased a new home and I made this card for them. I’d been looking at all the pop up cards popping up (no pun!) made with the Pop up card studio and I wanted to make something on my own. This was also a good time to get familiar with my new electronic cutter – KNK Zing. When I thought of making a card for the new home owners, I thought to myself how nice it would be if I could do a 3D picture of a cute little house, with a big shady tree, a white fence… and that’s how the vision for this card was setup.

Then I started looking around for the perfect house and I found this at Miss Kate’s Cuttables and at 50 cents it was quite a steal! The fence and the tree are cut files from the MTC gallery.

Here’s the front of the card


The letters are cut using Zing.

A few words about the zing – it is absolutely amazing! It took me some time to ramp up but I totally love it now! What I like best is that it cuts the PTI cardstock like butter in just one pass! All the CS above is PTI CS. Look at how well the Zing cut the teeny tiny details in the window! I’ll try to do a full review some time later.

  • Stamps: Impression Obsession Quatrefoil
  • Others: Papertrey Ink CS, Walnut Stain distress ink, KNK Zing.
