You’ve Got This Custom Word Card

The Cutting Cafe now offers custom word shaped card files!  So if you have always wanted a name or phrase you could never find, now you can have a file made for you in a PDF or cutting file!  Find the details here.

For out design team projects, we got to have a custom file made for us to use.  I chose the phrase, You’ve Got This.  I also requested a couple sentiments, Don’t Give Up, GIrlfriend, and With God…. You can have a few sentiments too.  This time I am using the card as a goodbye and good luck type of card so I did not use any of my sentiments.  I just added a few velum/bling flowers and added clear glitter marker to every one of those polkadots!

Hey Chick card using holographic foiling

For this week at The Cutting Cafe, we used the new Animal Friends printable stamp set.  It has a lot of cute images and sentiments.  I chose to use the chick  image.  You can pick up this cute set later today when the design team posting goes live for only 99 cents, only through the design team post!!!  Click here to see the post when it goes live this afternoon.  Leave a comment and you will also be eligible to win three files on the next design team post on March 7th.

I printed it out on my laser printer which allowed me to then use my mini Minc machine to foil it with some holographic foil I have in my stash.  I have a holographic paper pad, some holographic bling shapes, like the teardrops used here, and two sizes of holographic flowers.  Holographic, holographic, holographic lol!

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.

Posh High Heel Card

It is time for another design team project for The Cutting Cafe!  This week we worked with shoe and boot files.  I used the High Heel Shaped Card Template File to make this lux looking gold and cream card.  I love this file and have used it a couple times before.

You can make it the shoe shape or do as I have done and just used the top layer to add to a card.  Here is the inside…

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.

The set comes with the card base and layers for the outsides, the flowers, leaves, and other optional pieces like a fence,  sentiments, and smaller flowers, which I actually connected and used on the front.  Here is a better picture of the layers you can use on the front and back…
