Scan N Cut Saturday Video Tutorial – Creating Stitchable Card Fronts

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.

Right, that’s enough of that. Ready for the video? Ok, just click play and enjoy :)

Hope you enjoyed that tutorial and will give it a go yourself. If you do, and would like to share your creations with me you can find all of my social media links at the top of this page.
