Today I’m sharing a Greeting Card File. This is a lovely General purpose card but I’m thinking that it may also come in handy for my readers who celebrate Mother’s Day on March 26th as a Mum’s Day Card. For my other readers who celebrate Mother’s Day in May, maybe you can stash the file away for later or use it for Birthdays, Thank You or other occasions.
This picture, although at a weird angle shows the Basic card after cutting – I popped it on the black background so the cut outs are more visible.
The file includes the Card base, a scalloped piece to use as an optional contrast colour behind the cut outs and also a rectangle panel.
I used all three parts for my card.
Then I added additional non Silhouette decorations: I added a metal Die cut Rose, and also a Sentiment panel, which I upcycled from a used purchased card which I cut and embossed using a metal die, ( see more about upcycling a old cards here ). Finally, I stamped a greeting inside on a die cut square of paper that matched the front panel. You could decorate with any supplies or cutting files you already have on hand.
Here’s the inside showing the contrast panel
And the finished Card of course is the pic at the very top of the post.
Credit Where Credit is Due.
The Rose design has been adapted from a Dingbat Font. It did need some editing to make it suitable to cut. As with all cutting files made from fonts, they are designed for print not cutting, so adjustments are to be expected 🙂 Some deletions and space adjustments made it perfect for cutting and I love how it enhanced my card.
I used the lower case “a” from the Botanica Ornaments font.
