This week, I found a fantastic cutting file in the Pazzles Craft Room Library. It should be a Pocket Card file, but I decided to play with one section of the file using my Pazzles Inspiration cutting machine.
I tried 3 different looks and could have carried on for a while trying different permutations, but I ran out of dusky pink cardstock!
This is what the file in the Pazzles Craft Room looks like and is available in wpc and svg format.
So, how did I create the 3 different looks...........
This is the first card I started with. I made an outline of the curved rectangle to create my base card which I mirrored - duplicated - welded.
I cut out the file but did not cut the bottom right heart out of the pink cardstock. Instead, I cut one heart out of patterned paper. I layered it onto a craft foam pad and added a pearl flat backed heart.
For my second card, I followed the same procedure but I cut out all the hearts using patterned paper. I cut out one heart using pink cardstock and adhered it as before.
Then, for my third card I realised I had some pretty patterned hearts left over from card number 2 (above). So, not wanting to waste them, I scored them and applied a tiny bit of glue to the back of the score lined heart and arranged them on my card!
Oh, by the way, I took a sanding tool and distressed around the edges of the pink cardstock and hearts of all three cards.
I am so chuffed at how I have made 3 cards out of one cutting file and I still haven't made the Pocket Card as intended.....maybe next year!
I would love you to leave a comment and tell me which card is your favourite?
