The Cut Shoppe NSD 2018 ~ Large Title With A Cut File Challenge

Welcome to The Cut Shoppe‘s National Scrapbook Day 2018 (more than one day) celebration!!! We’ve got lots of fun things happening over the next four days, so make sure you check out everything in this post, so you won’t miss out! Also… there are FREE cuting files for you to grab!!!

Today challlenge is the Challenge No.3 ~ Large Title With A Cut File. I created this set of rainbow cards using the Hello There Cut File. It is perfect cut file for sentiment or title.

I open the PNG file with Silhouette Studio Desinger Edition software. And then using the Tracing tool, I traced the image, clicked the Trace bottom, then create cutting file. I resized it to fin on the front on 4 1/4” x 5 1/2” (A2) cards.

After I rezised it, I cut the file with Silhouette Cameo and use 80 lbs white cardstock.

For the watercolor washed backgrounds, I used smooshing technique to create them. I used watercolor papers. First, I added the Distress Oxide ink on the craft mat, sprayed with water, and them smoosh the paper in the ink. I dries it with craft heater for each time I added layer of colors. Adding extra texture on it, I sprayed some water using Distress Sprayer and then I dabbed it off with paper towel. I repeated the steps for all the colors.

After all the backgrounds done and dried well, I distressed the edges with Distresser tool. If you do not have this tool, you can use scissors to get the same effect, but have to be very careful.

I added each diecut sentiment on each watercolored background with Art Glitter Dries Clear Adhesive Glue. After that, I added each finished panel on the A2 card bases using Ez-Runner Grande.

I wrapped each card with natural twine ribbon and I added some matching color sequins on each card. They are finisned.
