Created by Jazmin Gibbons
Give any meal a fine dining feeling with an elegant menu card like this one. Beautiful intricate die cuts made simple with the eCraft electronic die cutting system and eCraft diecutable cardstock.
Supplies from The Paper Mill Store:
- Fundamentals 1 SD card & Jen Allyson Designs SD Card
- Pattered Paper
- Damask Stamp
- Pearlescent Rust Ink by Archival
- Lavender Dye Ink Pad by Stampabilities
- Turn on your eCraft, insert your Jen Allyson’s SD Card and set on Front mode with 1&1 tabs, blade pressure of 4 ½. Insert your plum, eCraft Diecutable card stock to cut. Select the Vintage frame on Jen Allyson’s SD card and set to cut on a size of 9 ½. Inches, send to cut. Once your frame is cut, set aside.
- To cut you accent butterflies, insert your Fundamental’s 1 SD card and select the butterfly from the Nature category, and send to cut on a size of 2 ½ in. Repeat this step with your red cardstock only this time cut your butterfly 2 inches. Do the same with the patterned paper, and cut the last butterfly on 1 ½ inches. Glue the butterflies together (using a glue stick to the middle of the image) and stack from largest to smallest. Set aside.
- Open Windows Word program and type the details of the menu card. To print, set the size to a 5 x7 and print on white cardstock.
- Take the printed paper, and stamp around the words. Using the negative from the frame, place on top of the printed words and use as a guide to cut around the words in an oval shape. TIP: Be sure to use an exacto knife to get clean edges, and leave some extra space around the image to glue behind the frame.
- Assemble your pieces. Glue the menu oval (words) behind the plum frame, then flip over and place a glue dot on the corner of your frame and place the butterflies on for a 3D effect.
