A few days ago, we launched the rotary cutter with mat
at our store
and I thought I’d take some time to describe it’s mammoth potential. It’s a cutter ideal for a crafter with space constraints and who doesn’t yet have a cutting mat for her craft work. It comes with a handle and 3 blade options – straight, large wave and smaller wave. I used the large wave blade to make this shop card for my cousin who just had a baby girl.
Now the card was 1.5″ thick thanks to the protruding canopy and the counter top. A box envelope wouldn’t do, it had to be a box instead. I didn’t want to make it too ornate, the card was embellished enough. I added these darling little baby footprints
for the top and instead of flowers on the top, I decided to add just a couple to each corner of the side. The sentiments are all stickers from ItsyBitsy’s baby girl range
I’m heading off to Kerala on Saturday to present my cousin with this concoction. It will be really hard to part with it because I seriously love it. Would love to hear your thoughts.
Also, you may have noticed a change in my photo style. I added a few ‘props’ and changed the background to suit my card. I got inspired by Sindhu of Trapped in Craft
– she’s been adding the most wonderful accents to her photographs.
The year is coming to an end and so is our latest challenge. Hope you’ve all entered your ‘Two’s company
‘ creation and perhaps this project will serve as more inspiration.
