Sunshine Birthday Card – The Cutting Cafe Design Team Project

6 Feb

Even though it is February and there is snow in my area, Spring is in the air at The Cutting Cafe!  This week the design team was given a choice of Spring files to work with.  Be sure to visit the Cafe Blog Wednesday afternoon to see all the wonderful design team projects.

Since I had not done a word shaped card before, I took the opportunity to try out the Sunshine Shaped Card Template file.  It was easier than I thought.

I hand cut the word as well as the card background (easy to do without an electronic cutting machine).  I used grey card stock for the the actual card and layered the word in paper from DCWV’s Lemon Flower stack.  I used a chipboard sun and printed the sentiment out on my computer and punched it out with a circle punch.  Then, I just added flowers, a ribbon bow, and flat back pearls and there you have it a lovely card.  Thanks for stopping by and feel free to sign up to follow by email to the right of the screen!
