Card Trio

To create this fun little set of cards I create a custom cut file using my Silhouette.  It was pretty simple.  I created a rectangle the size of a card front - so 4 and 1/4 by 5 and 1/2.  Then I drew some lines.  I cut the exact same design onto 3 sheets of 6 by 6 paper from the Bo Bunny Ambrosia paper pad.  I did this all at once by grouping my design, and then copying it twice so I could have all 3 on the mat.  After cutting I just shifted the colored pieces around like a puzzle and adhered them to cards.

For the center I used a couple Nestabilities dies.  I cut a scalloped circle in kraft cardstock and a regular circle in white.  The sentiment is from Stampin' Up's set Elementary Elegance and I used their Mellow Moss ink.

These were very quick to put together and I like that they form a cohesive set.  I intend to make a similar version of these that say "Thank You" and package all 6 together in a set to give someone.

I would like to share the file I created with you, but I need to figure out the best way to do that and simply don't have time to fiddle with it this morning.  Wish me luck in figuring that out and hopefully I will share the file - and perhaps a video when I make the thank you cards to complete the gifts.

Have a crafty day!

So clever Amber. I got my Silhouette for Christmas, might look at the DVD tonight. It's all so intimidating to me!

Amber - these are so wonderful and such a great idea to get a set of cards out of this idea! Fabulous.
