Cutting Cafe Inspiration for August 21st


Welcome to some more Cutting Cafe Inspiration!  This time around I used the Pencil Shaped Card cutting file for my project and here is what I made:


I decided to not cut a shaped card from the file... instead I made the pieces a little smaller that would normally decorate the front of the card and only cut those.. and I decided if I were using a pencil to write a letter... it would have to be a pretty one.  I picked out all of my papers from the Echo Park Spring Paper Pad available in The Cutting Cafe Shop (except for the note paper which I believe is from Simple Stories).


And since of course I'll be sending such letter/card snail mail I took the opportunity to use the awesomely adorable stamp set Animal & Bug Love also from the Cutting Cafe Shop... isn't he a cutie... the snail and the sentiment are from that set.  I placed some of that pretty paper behind my star cutout on my bow... I like the way that looks...


And with the help of a few dies, sequins, puffies and some pretty ribbon... it's ready to be mailed!

Thanks for stopping by!  And don't forget to check out the Cutting Cafe Blog on the 21st and comment to win some free files!  Also, take the opportunity to hop around and check out what my other Design Teammates have cooked up for you!

I may not be back with anything new for a bit as I'm going to be on vacation soon, unless I schedule a couple more posts before I go... hmmm... possible?  Maybe!  But if not, you'll be hearing from me when I get back!  See you soon!
