Pop Out Book Vintage Birthday Card
Woot Woot! I am on the eighth week of my YouTube series Man Card Mondays! I hope that you have found some inspiration to help you with cards for the men in your life! Today’s card looks pretty simple from the outside. But when the recipient opens it up, bam…
There is a pop out book insert. You can use any theme you want. I chose to go with a vintage feel and used numbers and words for the pattern and sentiments. I also added some little black corner stickers and metal numbers.
You could also use wooden embellishments to keep it vintage or maybe brighten it up with metal pieces. I also matted the back…
There are tutorials and electronic files out there that will show you how to make this card. Give a card with a little extra! Thanks for stopping by. Before you go, check out my video…
For my sixth episode of my YouTube series Man Card Mondays, I decided to tackle St. Patrick’s Day since that is coming up on Friday. This card can be for any man in your life depending on the sentiment you add to the inside which looks like this…
I just double matted the inside. I plan to add a cream or light green mat with sentiment on the right side.
I thought the Beers to you was clever and you have a ton of choices to use for the inside sentiment. I give several in my video, which can be viewed below, but a couple of examples are: and the luck of the Irish too or I am lucky to have you in my life.
Thanks for stopping by, Happy St. Patrick’s Day early, and take a peek at my video before you go!
Mini Shaker Mason Jar Embellishments
This week at The Cutting Cafe, it was all about jars. There are many files to choose from but I chose the Jar Shaped Cards file and used the mason jar with window. I sized it down quite a bit to make them mini.
These work well for swap gifts and exchanges. Here is a sample of packaging for that purpose…

Paper Bead Earrings and Jewelry Card Holder
Yep, these earrings are made of paper! For The Cutting Cafe design team, we got to work with the Paper Bead Set file and I must say these were fun and easy. The file comes with 9 different bead shaped and sizes and a small box . I decided to make earrings and will probably make a necklace or bracelet with the other beads (because they were too fun to make to just stop at two).
I have displayed them on a jewelry card made from the Jewelry Holder Set. It has several different styles of earring holders, and a couple boxes.
