Valentine Lace Shaped Card and Altered Valentine’s Day Frame – This Week’s Cutting Cafe Design Team Projects

23 Jan

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.
