I picked up a bunch of new cut files last night ..and despite the shenanigans of the day….
..for those of you not on my Facebook.. 50 degree drop in temps, broken window all in one day… not fun
BUT … despite all that I did actually get to knock out some quick last minute cards.
These are so quick and easy to put together and very quick CAS, clean and simple cards …and the files are so easy to tweak to suit your needs.
so here you go.. I have a few more in progress… but here are the 4 I knocked out earlier. I’m having a glitter card session, for a little holiday glam. Cut Files are from CraftsUPrint Designers.
This one is a “bow” cut file by Lyn Simms. It’s a 3 piece cut file, which comes in various formats. Mine is a SVG file and I did mine on black Velvet Paper. It has a soft flexible feels to it so won’t get damaged in transit. This velvet paper cuts like a dream on the Cricut Explore and just looks so cool.
I added in a black and Green contrast strip which I ran through a striped Darice embossing folder on my Big Shot.
Added in a black and White floral pattern from my Recollections Black & White paper pad. Mounted it all on a basic Recollections card from a multi pack.
Popped on a glitter card sentiment… and Voila…one quick fun Holiday card.
CHRISTMAS BELLS OVER THE EDGE 2 by Apetroae Stefan
Another really classy, quick card you can zip through really quickly if you need a last minute card. I adjusted this in Design Space to accommodate a square base, but that is one of the great things about these cut files. they are so versatile, putting your own spin on a basic template is so easy.
I just cropped this design and removed the score line to make it fit a square background. It’s cut on a Silver Glitter card stock and mounted on a black base. Very quick and classy card which looks great with or without sentiments and embellishments. This is definitely a timeless design that you can use year after year with so many variations… it will never get old.
Another Classy CAS card by Apetroae Stefan “christmas-bells-over-the-edge-4”
…again I modified this to suit a square base, but this time I kept it more like the original template and the score line wraps around the back of the card about half an inch.
More glitter card and black… sorry, I love these high contrast color combos on simple cards.
Again no sentiment for me, but you could easily add one and swap out the black for some acetate, or another color. Super quick to make, justa quick cut, fold, tape to insert.. VOILA !!! of course I didn’t forget to make you a card !!! *angelic face
And lastly.. for now at least… this super simple Poinsettia design. Poinsettia Floral Card by Judith Henry-Grammys Designs
The cut file comes in 4 parts: base, background, flower and circle frame.
I went with another classy black and gold combo. Love how this one turned out 🙂
I still have 11 more new cut files to go… so expect to see more of those soon… I love these quick and simple designs, specially the over the edge ones, they work extremely well with my digital stamps to create fun and interesting cards.
