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…

I am loving this cute gift card holder I made!  I used two stamp sets from The Cutting Cafe Shop, which is the sister store to The Cutting Cafe.  On the front, I stamped the cardstock with the Birthday Party Background stamp and the make a wish sentiment is from the Birthday Party Fun stamp set.  The base is cut from gold metallic paper.  Here is the back…

Green Birthday Cards – The Cutting Cafe Design Team Project

Birthday Cards

This week at The Cutting Cafe, we focused on the color green and could use any files we chose. I pulled out some of my tools, like Spellbinders dies and some punches, that I had not used in a while to make birthday cards that showcase a couple of the many printable stamp sets available from the shop. I used the Birthday Fun Printable Stamp Set and the Birthday Greetings Inside and Out Printable Stamp Set.

For the first card, I used both sets.  The cake image is from Birthday Fun and the sentiment is from the greetings set.

103rd Birthday and Other Step Card Versions – The Cutting Cafe Design Team Project

12 Nov

This week at The Cutting Cafe we got to use a very versatile file…The Step Card Template File.  This file contains five different versions of the step card.  The hard part was to choose which one to use.  I couldn’t choose so I kept making them.  I have three of the versions here for you.

First up, is my grandmother’s 103rd birthday card.  Yep, that’s right…she just turned 103!  Praise God and Praise God for her long life!  Here is her side step card…
