It’s Inspiration Wednesday and that means a new design team project for The Cutting Cafe! This week the four files we were to choose from were so fantabulous that I could not just pick one! So I made two things! The first is a card using the Heart Lace Shaped Card Template Cutting File and A Love Story Sentiment Printable Stamp Set for the inside sentiment. The outside sentiment came with the card file.
This file is a cutting file but with all of the files at The Cutting Cafe, you get many options. I used the PDF and just printed it onto red cardstock. I did not cut out the inside circles (which would have created the lace effect). I liked the way the bold outlines looked. I just Stickled a few hearts, added mesh bling trim, a ribbon slider and flat back pearl, and the sentiment. For the inside, I used the circle version of the sentiment I chose. It came in various formats (another plus with many of The Cutting Cafe files). I punched it with a Fiskars punch, and put it on a circle cut out with an EK Success punch. The inside heart is just a smaller version of the card.
My altered frame used the Valentine Mini Sentiments Backgrounds Printable Stamp Set. I used the Happy Valentine’s Day version in color. The stamps also come in black and white versions. The paper I covered the wood frame with was a bit mod 60′s but I liked it. I added some pearls, roses, glittered butterflies,and hearts. I think it is cute and I liked the way it turned out. This was a bit different for me but I like it.
The other files we had to choose from were the Fun With Hearts Printable Stamp Set and the Valentine Window Card Tops Template Cutting File. All of the files this week will give you many options for your Valentine’s Day projects!
