it’s Lisa back on the blog and today I’m sharing some cute holiday cards with you.
The assignment for this week was to use cutfiles on our projects. I needed to make cards and when I saw these cute cutfiles by Kim Watson, I knew I wanted to use them. 🙂
So to start, I let my silhouette cut out the cutfiles. A bird, a penguin and a mouse in a sock. I backed them with the patterned papers from the Main Kit and Paper Kit, using mainly reds, blues and pinks. The cutfiles all had very different shapes, so I decided to make three different shaped cards. A square one, a rectangular one, in a horizontal way and a rectangular one, in a vertical way.
Then I chose the papers that I wanted to use as my base, which wasn’t very easy, because there are a lot of busy patterned papers in the kit. So I went with a plain red cardstock, the grey woodgrain one and a red tartan one. The red tartan was a bit to busy too, so I decided to put a layer of vellum on top, to tone it down a bit and make the bird stand out more.
I stitched a zig-zag all-around the borders on the three cards, I adhered my backed cutfiles with foam tape and then I started embellishing.
On the mouse cards, I used the white snowflakes and stars from the exclusive watercolor die cuts (Color Kit). I also used some dot stickers from the Build-an-Ornament Sticker Sheet and an exclusive wood veneer mistletoe piece, as well as a mistletoe ephemera. For the sentiment, I used a sticker from the Cardstock Sticker Sheet and some letters from the Puffy Word Stickers. (Embellishment kit).
For the penguin card, I used a lot of ephemera flowers from the Floral Ephemera Pack (Embellishment Kit), I also used the same two little mistletoe pieces as before, and for my title, I used some puffy word stickers again. That puffy word sticker sheet is just amazing and has so many sentiments and titles ready to use. So cute 🙂
For the bird card, I used some stars from the Watercolor Die-cuts again (Color Kit) and I also used some baubles from the Build-an-Ornament Sticker Sheet (Embellishment kit). For the sentiment, I used some letters from the Puffy Shape Stickers (Pocket Life Kit) and again, the puffy word stickers. I added the two mistletoe pieces again, to create a binding element between the three cards.
I really hope you like them and hope you are inspired too, to create cards with cutfiles 🙂
