Scan It Saturday - Love Heart Swirly Frame Cutting File For The Brother Scan N Cut 1

Scan It Saturday – Swirly Heart Frame Cutting File For The Brother Scan N Cut

A decorative free SVG cutting file for you all this week.

This time I have designed a complete card front, you just need to add your choice of topper or sentiment.

The design also incorporates a trellis style background and all layers and mats.

Here is a picture of the “naked” card front (i.e. just showing what the cutting files will give you).

So, as you can see, most of the work has been done.

I worked with just two colours for this creation but you could do each layer in a different shade of colour if you preferred.

The finished card front is just a tad smaller than eight inches square so you can just mount it straight onto the front of an eight inch square card and be done. Due to the thin lines on the trellis, it is unlikely that this would reduce in size well however you could increase the size if you wanted to use it on a larger scrapbook page.

There are six cutting files in all. Each is a seperate layer of the design. The layers are supplied in both FCM and SVG file formats so should work with all known home hobby cutting machines including the Brother Scan N Cut, Silhouette and Cricut machines.

You can download all six by clicking on the button below.



You will need all six if you want to create the complete look however if you don’t want the lattice background you can just use the files from layer 3 onward.

I managed to make a quick design using the test cuts and a few extra bits.

For my tester project I have used Neenah cardstock. If you want to use different cardstocks then I would suggest something around 220gsm or less. This will incorporate Neenah and most lightweight cardstocks (American Crafts Bazzill Basics, Coredinations etc). I don’t think that the fine details will cut so well from thicker cardstocks; but do feel free to experiment.

I used the Direct Cut feature of the Brother Scan N Cut to cut them all from their sheet.

As a final thought, I had a go at making some flowers from the “waste” of the frame.

Right, that’s it for this week’s post. I hope that you like the file and will use it in your card making adventures.

As ever, as I have made this design completely from scratch, you are free to use the files to make and sell as many handcrafted items as you wish however please don’t share/sell the file or the basic cut outs.

If you know someone that would like this file, please feel free to send them a link to this post or use the handy sharing options below.

  2. John I am having difficulty with the direct cut mode, the scanner is not picking up the complete design. It happens with stamped images on white card stock and Copic colored images as well? Any thoughts. I just got the machine today and love it when it works lol. Tube

  3. Hi There, In New Zealand I use 240 grms card for cards, the others too light at 160grms, I waste a lot of card despite test cuts can you suggest some settings for blade , pressure speed etc with my scanncut, I know it will vary but would like your opinion for that weight of card.
    Thanks for your help

    • I can’t do instructions on how to get the file as this will vary from site to site. I have already done a post on how to convert various files in canvas.

  5. Hi John,
    Thanks so for sharing, you really are an inspiration to all, plus you make me giggle every time I read, even the fabric Friday (though I don’t sew!). I love your files, and I hope you don’t mind, but I changed it slightly to make a card for my niece, using Hunkydory card stock. Keep up the good work and entertaining the masses.
    Kind regards
    Karry

    I have a question for you do you think that Brother might bring out a pen with either gold or silver ink as I am not very good at welding words together,
