KEEP CALM AND...soak up the sun

hello, 
i want to share with you another project i made for the cutting cafe blogspot.
all is hand cut (except what is done in yellow) since i do not own one of those machines. and... for your info i just realized i used blue and brown on a prior project for the same blog, lol.


Keep Calm and...
7" x 5.5"
This KEEP CALM AND... WORD SHAPED CARD template - cutting file is approx. 5.25 by 4 inches. It will fit inside a A2 sized envelope.
The set comes with 10 sentiments, in two different styles.
The files comes in the following formats: PDF, WPC, SVG and MTC.
The letters also come individually in the set.
These word shaped cards are also good for scrapbooking layouts.

NOTE: as you can see i was able to re-size my card within the pdf doc prior to transfer to my word doc program. 


after cutting the desired digital images, i inked all the edges for more definition. i also punched some tiny flowers, a border and the tiny flowers gold centers. i also made a bigger flower to unify my project. 



i printed the sentiment on the same yellow patterned cardstock i used for the flowers and border. i chose to cut it apart, inking each section and re arranging it in a straight sentence just for a bit of fun.  i also added more tiny gold circles to the left to complete my card.
despite the fact i have to hand cut these files and it is much more work i can really say it is a handmade card, lol.

but the truth is i feel so bad because i do not think i am doing justice to regina's work and compare myself with others who own the machine and i feel bad and sad. but i will try my best to do a good "hand cutting" job for regina and for you all.

and this is why this card makes me happy. i was able to stay calm and...
work with i have and then soak up the non existent sun (it was rainy when i made this card, lol)

thanks again for stopping by the hut,
you know i appreciate it.

  5. I can't believe you hand cut this great card! It would be way too difficult for me to do that, so I am only able to use the print files for now.
