I’m back from hols and what a wonderful time we had. More about that below 🙂
I think I’m still in holiday mode – luckily I did this design before we went away. Today’s file is a square greeting card with a border of arches cut from the front of the card. I’ve overlaid a contrasting coloured square in the middle and topped that with a slightly smaller square which has been textured for a bit of added interest. I’ve decorated my card with a organza bow and a die cut heart but you can pretty much decorate it any way you like 🙂
I don’t want my handwriting showing through the cut outs so I’ll place my printed sentiment on the inside left page of the card which gives me more room to carefully write on the card in the middle of the right hand page. That way my handwriting is covered by the solid centre of the card front and won’t show through when the card is closed.
Here’s the Cutting File for the Arched Card compatible for Version 3 (Test Cut Samples done on this version)
Here’s the Cutting File for the Arched Card saved for Version 2 of the Silhouette Software (not tested)
Today’s post comes complete with bonus Holiday snaps 😉 We had such a great time, Bali’s a beautiful country with lovely people and is a popular holiday destination for West Aussies. It was extra special for us as we were with family & friends – Our friendships formed years ago when we all lived in the same street and our kids (now adults) grew up together. Most of the Kids made the trip too – They all do their own thing now and careers and life have taken them on separate paths but it was lovely to see them all reconnect again.

I found out later that it was a very stylish Ashtray! Right: Murray & I in Kuta in front of a beautifully painted and carved door.
