The Cutting Cafe

I'm so excited to announce that Regina at The Cutting Cafe invited me back to design for her! I just love Regina and all of her awesome files and stamps, so I'm so happy to be back on her design team, surrounded by so many creative and talented ladies!!

It's Inspiration Time at the Cafe, and we were allowed to work with anything from The Cutting Cafe store. I chose three files for my project. The files are so versatile, that it's easy to find yourself working with multiple files for a single project.

The Inspiration part of my project came from a dear friend of mine. A few days ago I found out that one of my dearest and truest friends will undergo a double masectomy soon. My heart has been so heavy since she told me, so I wanted to do something for her. I know a little card won't ease all the thoughts she's having right now, but I hope that it'll at least bring a small smile to her face, if only for a few minutes. Much love to you my friend!!

For my card above, I chose to work with the following files from The Cutting Cafe:
I first lightened the lines of my Beautiful Rose layer using Paintshop Pro. Once I had that done, I printed out directly to my patterned paper that I had chosen. I then used my copics to color my rose in. I'm pleased with the way it turned out. I wanted the rose to be the focal point of the card, so I tried to keep everything around it simple. I then took some Glossy Accents and highlighted the petals and leaves, giving the rose some dimension.
After I was through with my Rose, I just began layering my pieces the way I liked. I then used a sentiment for the inside.
There's SOOOO many pieces to these sets, so you'll have plenty to choose from for your own projects!!!
Don't forget to head over to The Cutting Cafe Blog for even more inspiration!!!
