Everyday Shapes Window Card Topper Cards

This week at The Cutting Cafe, we could choose any file we wanted. I needed a couple cards so I chose the Everyday Shapes Window Card Tops.  The file has several cut out shapes that you can add as toppers to your cards.  I used the flower version…

Custom Word Card

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!

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

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.
