14th Shaped Cards – The Cutting Cafe Design Team Project

14th Word Shaped Cards

14th Word Shaped Cards

For this posting of the Design Team Projects for The Cutting Cafe, we focused on word shaped cards that pertain to Valentine’s Day.  I chose to use the 14th Shaped Word Card, which can be versatile to be used not only for Valentine’s Day but for anniversaries, years, or a special date.  I made two different ones.  The first one features sentiments from the This Cake is All Heart, a printable stamp set from The Cutting Cafe.

Jumbo 65th Birthday Card and Gift Card Holder – The Cutting Cafe Design Team Projects

Jumbo 65th Birthday Card and Gift Card Holder

I am back with another design team project for The Cutting Cafe.  For this posting, we were able to use any file we wanted to.  I chose two to work with, the Birthday Word Gift Card Holder and the Birthday Number Candle Set.

First, one of my staff is turning 65.  I needed a card large enough for everyone in my department to sign, so I made a scalloped card base that is 9″x7″.  I added an embossed panel and holographic gold dot stickers, but wanted the focal point to be the Birthday Number Candles!

I kept the inside plain since many people will be signing it…

Next, I will be giving her a gift card so I wanted something separate for that.  I kept the theme the same with the tone on tone white shimmer paper with gold.  I used gold Dazzle stickers to add accents.

Whimsical Birthday Card – The Cutting Cafe Design Team Project

Fun with Silhouettes Angle View

This week for our The Cutting Cafe Design Team project, we were to use the Fun with Silhouettes Printable Stamps and Cutting File which is full of fun shapes that you can print or cut!

I chose to use the rainbow and clouds shape to make this whimsical card.  I just love the way it turned out.  I used a Spellbinders die to create the card.  I am also using this for a collaboration project where I have to use any two of beads, metal, or fiber.  I used sparkly tulle for my fiber, and a metal piece with birthday on it.

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…

Man Card Mondays Episode #3 – Aluminum Foil

20 Feb

Welcome to the third installment of my YouTube series Man Card Mondays!  Today I am focusing on adding a touch of metallic on cards with foil.  But, I am not using foiled cardstock.  I went to my kitchen and got out some good ‘ole aluminum foil!

Man Card Monday #3 Aluminum Foil Dad's 75th Card

The silver front is embossed aluminum foil.

If you are not a huge user of foil, then you just might not want to buy  a whole pad of paper, or spend $2 on one sheet.  Well, aluminum foil can help you out.  It can be embossed, die cut, punched, alcohol inked, and as I found out, can be cut in an electronic cutting machine.

Here is the first panel. I embossed the red cardstock with a metal plate pattern.

The card fully opened with a pocket for a gift card.

I also made a second card.  I don’t have a sentiment on it as I don’t know what I am going to use it for yet.  But I cut the tools out with my Silhouette Cameo.  They came out great!

The tools are cut from aluminum foil.

I give a few tips and show how you can color the aluminum foil in my video below.  Thanks for stopping by!
