Hello Scrapbook & Cards Today fans! I love making cards, but sometimes they take almost just as long for me to make as a scrapbook layout! I love utilizing anything that helps make the process quicker.
So, I created this cut file freebie has everything you need to create 4 unique and pretty backgrounds for a card set!
download free cut file HERE
I also pulled out my CardMaps Vol. 4 and used this sketch:
I cut the file out on some white textured cardstock and then got to work making the following cards. I used the same colour palette to keep the process quick and easy!
On this card, I simply cut the file and then added some watercolour paints to areas of the card. When the watercolour paints were dry, I added a stamped sentiment using pink and black ink.
I added some tiny scraps of patterned papers to back part of the diecut shape and then added a piece of vellum to finish off the card.
Supplies used in cards: Patterned paper, chipboard, sequins, tag – Fancy Pants Designs; Watercolour paint – Studio Calico; Tiny Attacher; Twine – May Arts; Stamps – Stampin’ Up
This card was done in a similar fashion, with small bits of paper and a simple tag for a sentiment!
Lots of wonderful options and many ways to use of those leftover scraps! While you're sitting down to do one card, why not do two or three of the same! Just add a sentiment when you need it and go.
Would love to see what you do with this free cut file so please share in the comments below. Enjoy the rest of this wonderful celebration of card making. There are also some amazing prizes this hour so keep reading!
