Star Card with WPC Cutting file and Manual Instructions

We’ve all seen these star cards before.  I’ve found that family and friends love getting cards that are unique so have decided to post one today.  I used the Pazzles software to come up with a WPC cutting file here.  Although I’ve included manual instructions below, the Pazzles will cut and score this project perfectly in just a few seconds.  I’m enclosing a link here to some videos on the Pazzles Inspiration showing some wonderful capabilities including embossing, writing with the pen tool, engraving, piercing, distressing, and even cake decorating! I am actually very excited as I now have the Pazzles cake decorating kit and I’m going to try it out soon!

I made these cards some time back, but realized I had never posted them.  The Pion Design vintage images are so great to use with cards!  Inspiration for this card came from here.

3-Step Card with cutting file

November 7, 2013 UPDATE!  I originally found the manual template for this card by Sheila Weaver on the joannasheen.com site.  It is no longer there however.  I did a search for the template but could not find it.  SO, I AM INCLUDING THE MANUAL TEMPLATE HERE that was made based on Sheila Weaver’s template.  It includes cut lines and score lines. The base card measure 12″ x 6″ and the piece that joins with this measures 6″ x 5 3/8″

I have made this 3-step card using Pion Design papers.  I found the manual template for this card here but of course I made a cutting file for my Pazzles Inspiration to make it easy.  Once the cutting file is made, making unique cards like this one can be done quickly.  The Pazzles does the work of cutting precisely, and all you have to do is decorate! 🙂  Here is the WPC cutting file for this card.  Place mouse over link and right click to “Save File” on your com­puter.    Then open in your machine software. To make this card as shown, there must be two pieces of cardstock joined together.  This is explained on the cutting file.  A separate square is glued to the scored fold line to make the front flap.
