Go easy on Enjoy those chocolates 😉
Last week I promised they’d be no more Hearts! So today I’ve got something completely different – a cute card that’s sure to put a smile on your face!
This is a really quick project and great for Kid’s Birthdays or even as a Get Well Card. Cut out the Card from Yellow Cardstock and the features from Black. I used Foam tape to adhere the eyes and smile – by raising them up it gives the card a bit more interest. Then I added a little ribbon bow, attached with double sided tape. Too easy!
And when the card’s opened – Ta Da! there’s a cut out word “Smile” …..
A couple of Tips
- If you’re using Textured Card, either flip the main card design horizontally or place the cardstock textured side down on the cutting mat. This will ensure the texture is on the front cover of the card and the smooth surface is on the inside.
- Stick the foam tape to the underside of the eyes and mouth but before you attach them to the card, colour the sides of the foam tape with a black sharpie. This will help it blend in with the black eyes and mouth. This is especially handy when fixing on thin shapes, where the white foam tape may show when looking at the card from some angles. I didn’t take my own advice and although I tried to colour it in afterwards, you can still see some white parts of foam.
Here’s the Silhouette Studio File. Hope it brings a smile to your face.
