I first saw a sample of this card on Pinterest and thought, "Hey, I can do that!!" I find that with my Gazelle, I say that A LOT!! :o) When I saw the card it immediately reminded of one very special woman in my life and I knew that I had to make it for her. She is a military wife, who has watched her husband deploy several times. She has done a wonderful job with 2 beautiful little ladies and is truly a SUPER MOM! She also enjoys reading comic books!! Yeah, this card fit her perfectly!!
While I didn't use any files available through Bosskut Designs, I used many of the wonderful features available on the Funtime software. As I've learned my way around the tools and options available, I've learned that there really isn't much that you wouldn't be able to do.
I first started by creating the 5x6.5 card, rounded the edges a tad, and scored the rectangle down the middle for the fold. I knew that I was going to need at least 2 layers to get the look I wanted, so I made another rectangle that was 1/4 inch smaller than the original card. I set those aside so that I could work on the design the card is center on.
Since I couldn't find the shape that I was looking for among the Funtime shapes that come with the software I went ahead and made my own. Using the option to turn on the grid, I created the cut lines of the shape I wanted to use. Then I duplicated the shape because I was going to use it on 2 layers of the card and I want the shape the exact same size.
Then I put "SUPER MOM" where I wanted it on one of the shapes that I had set aside. Selecting the shape first, then "SUPER MOM" I used the subtraction tool. A great tutorial available at the Boss Kut Training website shows you exactly how easy it is to use the subtraction tool!!
