An early Happy Easter to all of you! It’s been quite a while since I have done paper piercing on a card. Also, for my birthday (last month), my dear brother made me a proper paper piercing tool – in two sizes, yay! So, for our Easter card swap, I made this for my swap partner, Delores(MaDee). This pattern is a freebie on my site and you can see the card that I did last year here. If you have a critical eye, you will notice that I struggled in cutting the tight curves in my earlier card. Now that I have a Cricut with SCAL, I decided to have a go with it again. This time, I did the reverse: cutting away the inside of the paper piercing and the card base to frame the printed graphic and sentiment (the image is from Teddy Bears by Rebecca Carter at www.PCCrafter.com). I really like how this turned out – and I like how the curves were smoothly cut! So, I made another birthday one:
You can tell that I was really inspired to make these cards! As for my RAK, I will be picking two winners who will get: two pre-printed and pre-cut paper piercing pattern (just like the ones shown above), two pre-cut card bases and two pre-printed images. The pre-printed sentiments will be “Happy Birthday” and “Just a note”. If you want to be included in the drawing for this RAK, just post a comment below. Blessings everyone!
***Update: Just picked the winners of the RAK, and the lucky ones are…. Lori/Lorianna and Julie/JulieM! Congratulations! Please e-mail or PM me (via PC Crafter MB) with your address so I can mail your prizes. Thanks for all the comments, ladies – I read and treasure each one!
@ Diane – I’ll e-mail you the SVG file if you want it!
@ Edieb – I use SCAL2, but I heard that MTC is easier to use, try playing with it, it’s a lot of fun!
