Mini 3D Shadow Box Card – The Cutting Cafe Design Team Post

Mini 3D Shadow Box Card

It has been a while since I posted but I am slowly but surely coming back!  We moved and I haven’t fully unpacked my craft room yet.  But I am digging out things to do cards and projects for.

This card is a design team project for The Cutting Cafe.  It is the 3D Shadow Box Card Template and has many options, different shaped openings, layers, and sentiments.  I chose to alter the size and make it 3 x 3 inches so I can use it as part of a swap that my friend Scrapdaworld is hosting.

Here is the inside…

I added a glitter heart in the window but you can add pictures, sentiments, etc.  Also, if you keep the embellishments relatively flat, you can fold the card flat and put it in an envelope.

Reflection: My Favorite 2018 Project for The Cutting Cafe

21 Dec

Hello Everyone!  Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, and Happy Whatever You May Celebrate!  Since it is a busy time for everyone, for this posting of design team projects for The Cutting Cafe, we were asked to reshare our favorite project we did for 2018.

That is sort of a hard task for a creator of anything as everything you create tends to become your favorite of the moment.  I looked at my projects for this year and there were a few that I was going between as my favorite.  I was going to select two because I just could not decide.  But, without further ado, the project that I chose as my favorite this year is…

Typewriter Shaped Card

Typewriter Card

The typewriter card I created this summer for a staff person celebrating her 25th work anniversary was not my usual color palate but I loved the softness, but yet the sparkle of this card.  I made it with the Typewriter Shaped Card file.  To see my original post on this project, along with the video of it, click here.

Holographic Hey Chick Card – The Cutting Cafe Design Team Project

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!

Cute holographic flowers!

For the inside, I just used a cut apart from the paper pad.

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.

Encouraging Hope Card – The Cutting Cafe Design Team Project

Hope Card

Hope Card

Today for The Cutting Cafe, the design team worked on things for Breast Cancer Awareness Month.  I know a couple people, including a former co-worker, Molly, and my cousin Kim who have both just beat breast cancer and I am very happy for both of them!  It takes a lot of prayer and support for a person to make it through and these two are living proof that survival does happen and that God has the last word!

For my project, I used the Hope Shaped Word Card and the Breast Cancer Hershey Kiss Box Set.

Here is another view.

I used the kiss bottoms as sentiments on the card and added glittered scallops and half back pearls.  On the back, I added a reminder…
