Rat pack 18th card with Hannah Montana Cartridge

I was asked to make an 18th Birthday Card for a young man who is a club singer, He sings swing and loves the ratpack so this is what I came up with. I already had a Kanban topper to use and I used the Hannah Montana Cartridge to create his name, the number 18 and the treble clef. I think it turned out really cute. Because I had used dimensionals on the front of the card a regular envelope would not be suitable so I also made an Envelope and cut out a Giant Treble Clef to attach to the front. The strip across the top of the card is adhesive ribbon that has musical notes on it.

Print and Cut, Make the Cut and Pink Petticoat

I have been reading a lot abut the new Provocraft Machine and all about how it can print and cut. I have always been able to do this as I have a craft Robo but if you don't know how the registration marks work it can be tricky. After reading cleversomedays blog about the hinge technique, and Make the Cut, I decided that I was going to have a play.

I used some images that I had purchased from Pink Petticoat a while back and followed the instructional video and was able to cut perfect circles around my image and then following this create perfect mats for them to be attached too. I had not used my images much before as I am rubbish with a craft knife and so being able to do this has opened so many possibilities to use my digital stamps and have them cut perfectly. 

Here are my first results.

 I think that they are rather smart for a first attempt.

Everton Football Card

I made a card for a friend of mine who was turning 50. She is a mad Everton FC fan so I made her this card.

I used My Craft Studio to design the backing paper and decoupage and Make the Cut to create the Happy Birthday and the 50.

A couple of new cards

Here are some cards that I have created for Orders this week.
For the first card I used A child's year cartridge and Design studio and for the second I used Doodlecharms for the babies face and Make the cut for the name.

Nesties made in Inkscape

I created some Nested shapes in Inkscape and think that they are perfect for matting and Layering or Journalling on cards and scrapbooks so I thought that I would share them with you.

For the Boys

I find it really hard when I am trying to make a boys card and I don't have any suitable images for the front of my cards. I decided as I am "dog sitting" and I dont have my cricut I would spend some time making some mtc files for boys cards. There are various pictures, that I think would suffice. I hope that you enjoy them and find them useful. Also below each image is a link to thecorresponding MTC file.
