A bouquet of Birthday Wishes

Good morning!!  Thanks for stopping by my blog today!!  This post is all about the famous "bendi card" craze going on right now.  Regina is so amazing that she decided to create a "Cutting Cafe" bendi card of her own to share with all of us and this week the design team post is all about showing off the bendi card!!

I used some valentine paper in wine color and a flower print to create what I'm calling "A bouquet of Birthday Wishes" because I also used some flower sprays from my local store to accent the open areas of the card.  The sentiment comes with the file and I added an outline to help the words standout from the paper backing.  Some lace trim and string of bling finish off the bottom area.  

Check out some pics!




I hope you've been inspired to try this design, its pretty cool and don't worry if you want to mail it the file also comes with a box template made to fit the card perfectly!!

Thanks for stopping by!!

Blessings & Craft Happiness,

You've Got Mail - Valentine

Hey there, Chauntelle here!!  Welcome to my design team post for The Cutting Cafe this 7th day of January!!  It's definitely not too early to start planning out the valentine day sweet treats you'd like to share with family and friends and this week we are doing just that....playing with valentine day files from the cafe!!  I used The Mailbox Templete file to create this adorable self standing mailbox; to me it mimics the design of the blue mailboxes we have here in the U.S.A you find on street corners and such. 

Everything I used came from the file with the exception of the butterfly, flowers and red hearts; those are all from my stash and RAKs received!  The gold hearts attached to the clothes pins are from the Target $1Spot; I heat embossed them gold from red and add a red rhinestone.


I chose nontradition colors for this project because although its nice to use the reds and pinks only its also nice to change it up a little bit.  Gives your projects their own personality!!

I hope I have inspired you to pull out your valentine day stash or head on over to The Cutting Cafe to purchase some valentine day files you can use with a cutting machine or without!!  Don't forget to check out the design team blog post to see all the great projects created this week AND leave a comment to enter for a chance to win free files!!  

Thanks for stopping by!!

Blessings & Craft Happiness!!
