Sunshine Birthday Card – The Cutting Cafe Design Team Project

6 Feb

Even though it is February and there is snow in my area, Spring is in the air at The Cutting Cafe!  This week the design team was given a choice of Spring files to work with.  Be sure to visit the Cafe Blog Wednesday afternoon to see all the wonderful design team projects.

Since I had not done a word shaped card before, I took the opportunity to try out the Sunshine Shaped Card Template file.  It was easier than I thought.

I hand cut the word as well as the card background (easy to do without an electronic cutting machine).  I used grey card stock for the the actual card and layered the word in paper from DCWV’s Lemon Flower stack.  I used a chipboard sun and printed the sentiment out on my computer and punched it out with a circle punch.  Then, I just added flowers, a ribbon bow, and flat back pearls and there you have it a lovely card.  Thanks for stopping by and feel free to sign up to follow by email to the right of the screen!

30 Jan

It is Wednesday which means Inspiration Day at The Cutting Cafe!

This week we had an assortment of files to choose from which are listed below. Since my friend’s baby shower is coming up, I decided to use the onesie file. Of course both me, the godmother, and my friend love animal print. I had to add some on the card! Thanks for stopping by!  My YouTube video is also below.

Love Note Valentine Card Swap

18 Jan

I am participating in a swap on YouTube that is hosted by Markisha who is Staplem1 on YouTube.  There were two group choices.   We could choose to do Parisian or Shabby Chic.  It had to be an A2 sized card with at least three embellishments, a sentiment, and had to be finished both inside and outside.
