Hello all! Here is another lovely design from Paper Crafting World.
Today's contribution to the team blog is my card made using the Irish Flourish cutting file available from here.
This is a great file as you can use the border as a page decoration or
the flourish on its own. I have chosen to use the flourish on its own as
the centrepiece for this card.
First, I imported the
svg of the flourish into SCAL4 (Sure Cuts a Lot v4) and created two
shadow layers, one slightly bigger than the other, giving me a total of
three layers for the flourish. I then imported the three layers into
Design Space so I could cut it with my Cricut Explore. I had planned to
use a single colour for the card, but I decided to try it with white
daisy and colonial white cardstock from Close to My Heart.
cut an oval shaped card from Colonial White cardstock, then another
oval the same size to attach to the front of the card so you cannot see
the fold line at the top. I embossed the oval for the front of the card
using my trusty Swiss Dots embossing folder and my Cuttlebug. I then
layered the three flourish cuts, adding a small knot tied ribbon before
adding the top layer of the flourish with foam pads to add some more
dimension. As a finishing touch, I added some pearls and a sentiment to
the top layer.
I hope this gives you all some ideas for using this particular cutting file!
