Creating Stitchable Card Fronts in Canvas Workspace
In this tutorial I will share with you how I created stitchable card fronts using Canvas Workspace and the piercing kit, available for DX models of the Scan N Cut.
Sadly, if you have a CM model of the machine, this technique will not work for you.
Not sure what I mean by a stitchable card front? Will, it simply means piercing a series of holes in a piece of card that you can then stitch thread through to create a unique style of greetings card.
Here is an example that I made for this blog post and video. First, the punched card.
Then, the finished stitched card.
Neat trick, right?
As I mentioned, this will only work with DX models of the machine and does require a registered piercing premium accessory kit.
The video is approx 14 minutes long and will cover the following stages.
- Designing the project in Canvas Workspace – recorded in real-time.
- Piercing and cutting out the card fronts – heavily sped up as it did take a while but you get a good overview of the workflow.
I have not covered stitching this out as that is down to personal preference as to the type of thread and stitch that you use. If it helps, I used a single strand from a stranded cotton skein and a thin beading needle.
Just before I share the video with you, I would like to take a mo to remind you that if you need/want guidance on the basic operations of the machine, please do check out my full “Brother Scan N Cut – Cut, Draw and Scan with Confidence” course on Udemy. It’s crammed with over 14 hours of information right from setting it up, all the way through the three key functions of cutting, drawing and scanning on both the CM and DX models and also covers using the Canvas Workspace software and a range of the accessories too!
Oh, and whilst I am shamelessly plugging things, did you know that I have literally THOUSANDS of SVG cutting files on this very blog? Some are free too! If you are interested in checking them out, please visit the SVG Cutting File Shop Archive.
Right, that’s enough of that. Ready for the video? Ok, just click play and enjoy :)
