Welcome back to the Scrapbook & Cards Today blog! I am excited to be on the blog today with a new cut file freebie. Spring is in the air – let’s hope it is… soon, the flowers will be blooming and birds will be back singing in the trees. Today’s freebie is inspired by spring. Check it out:
Link to cut file HERE.
The flower like shapes in the the freebie can be a few things – quite simply flowers – or a fun take on a scallop shape! There are also some 3×4 cards in the freebie that can be used in different ways.
Here is a project I made using this month’s cut file:
Supplies: Patterned paper (Stampin’ Up, American Crafts); Stamps (Stampin’ Up, American Crafts); Wooden Sprinkles (Jillibean Soup); Stickers (American Crafts); Cardstock (Bazzill); Adhesive s( 3L, Xyron); Enamel Dots (My Mind’s Eye), Linen Twine (Stampin’ Up); Sequins
I decided to use the flower shapes as that – flowers, and cut out 3 layers for each flower, resizing them ¼” smaller for each layer. I added some dimensional foam adhesive in between the top and middle layer for some height:
I also jazzed up each flower with a punched centre and used both cardstock and patterned paper for that. I added some fun Stampin’ Up stamps for one of the flower centres in a few different colors of ink:
I also used 2 cards from the freebie – the diagnol card I made much larger and used it over a layer of patterned paper as a decorative piece and the second I used as a journal card of sorts, cut out of some gret Stampin’ Up patterned paper.
This cut file is one of my new favorite that I have made! I love the 3×4 cards, and it’s so great that they can be easily resized for whatever your project needs!
Thank you so much for joining me today – I am off to get working on next month’s freebie…anyone have any requests for designs?
