The Cutting Cafe Inspiration-April 7th Anything Goes!


Welcome to some Cutting Cafe Inspiration!  This time around it's anything goes, so you never know what you gonna get!  And here, we've got tulips!  I love this Tulip Card Set from the Cutting Cafe!  There are a couple different options, but my heart was set on this adorable card with the fence that opens....


I love the challenge of a card where the inside and the outside come together!  It's so much fun to have little bits and pieces peeking out here and there but it can be frustrating when you forget you printed your images on the back of another print that didn't go so well and oops!  It's showing through...lol!  So we have some taking off and putting back on and moving around to do!  Maybe some careful placement of flowers or sequins...lol!


I also cut two of each of my layers for my tulips and fence so the back side of my front would be decorated too!  After pulling in my files and sizing them according to the directions for SVG files, I duplicated them and flipped the second set the opposite way... there can be an ever so slight difference when putting them back to back so flipping ensures they match up.  Also for my tulip flowers, I made the flower part just a little bigger and since I was backing the opposite side it was ok because they matched up.


Aren't these chicks from the One Spring Day printable stamp set adorable?  This momma chick brought along an umbrella to shade her babies from the bright sun as they sit and take a rest... well, all except for the adventurous fella on the front of the card.

I'm playing along with the fantabulous Cricut Easter Challenge  and the Let's Craft and Create Challenge Easter/April Showers ! You should check these out! And there is a new Facebook Group in town where you can see what challenges there are out there and/or post info about your own!  Check out the All Craft Challenges Group here!


I love cutting clouds in vellum... and I love this pretty sentiment from the Hello Gorgeous stamp set from The Cutting Cafe Shop stamped and embossed on it.


One more look... It makes me smile....
