final card

What a beautiful card that could be used for a wedding, an anniversary, or just a special greeting. You can add your own sentiment or leave it as is. I love how the neutral colors coordinate together. Three different papers were used to make this card.

The papers used were Stardream Metallic in Quartz for the card. Stardream is my favorite cardstock because it has a shimmer to the surface. Cut the floral element from MirriSparkle Glitter in Gold, and the vellum insert from Curious Translucent in Clear.

cricut

I cut the file on a Cricut Maker. As a reminder, set the red lines to score and load your scoring tool before setting the file to cut. Similar weight cardstocks can be cut at the same time. Set your machine to 100lb cardstock for the Stardream and the Gold Glitter and run the cut twice. Just push the go button again without removing your mat.

parts

The cut file has three parts to glue together. Any adhesive will work, I am using Reptile Craft Adhesive. I’ve placed it into a smaller bottle (as seen in the photo above). You can purchase the pearl gems at the Dollar Tree.

This view shows the detail of the decorative piece on the front of the card. I like the dimension gained from the addition of the pearl gems as well as the see-through element of the vellum.

finished round box

Not only was this circular box fun to put together, but it also has great function. You can use it for storage or as a wrapping for a gift. The SVG file is adjustable so you can make the box in a variety of different sizes. The design comes with the top decorative element but you could omit that and do your own thing with the basic circular box.

cardstock packs

I used the Glama Card Stock in Kraft for the box structure and MirriSparkle Glitter Card Stock in Gold for the top decoration. The Gold Card Stock has a glittered front with a matte white back. It is great for crafting as the glitter doesn’t flake off.

cricut maker

I cut the file on a Cricut Maker. As a reminder, set the red lines to score and load your scoring tool before setting the file to cut. FYI – I always add additional protection when cutting cardstock by using washi tape around the edges so the cardstock doesn’t move when cutting.

cut out parts

I actually cut two additional circles from the Kraft Card Stock. You will see in the video tutorial that I used them to sandwich the tabs between them for a clean finished look. This also added more stability to the box.

The video tutorial below shows how to put it together.

This view shows the detail of the decorative piece on the top of the box. There is a bit of glue showing but it will dry clear and not be noticeable. I really like how the kraft card stock and the glittery gold work together.

Box Envelope

Make a box envelope with this free SVG file.

with CutCardStock

Box envelopes have become really popular. Especially with the variety of depth being used with card making. This SVG file makes for a nice slimline envelope. It would also make for a nice way to present a gift of money to someone special.

pop tone card stock

I used Pop-Tone in Spearmint for my project. As of this posting, this pack isn’t currently available but no worries, you can still get Spearmint in a variety pack of Pop-Tone. Pop-Tone colors come in a variety of different sizes and invitations as well as envelopes.

cricut maker

I cut the file on a Cricut Maker. As a reminder, set the red lines to score and load your scoring tool before setting the file to cut.

Here is the card stock cut and scored ready for folding. I used a bit of double-stick tape to seal the sides.

The view from the side shows the depth of the box envelope.

close-up

The close-up view shows how the envelope overlaps on the front as well as showing the depth from a different angle. The sticker decoration I used to finish the envelope was one I bought at the Dollar Tree. I like how the colors of the sticker coordinate with the spearmint pop-tone cardstock as well as having a bit of depth too.

Layered Heart SVG

Create a layered heart valentine with this free SVG file.

with CutCardStock

For Valentine’s Day, I am making a layered heart valentine with CutCardStock. I chose to make the heart alone but you can alter the file in many different ways. Use it as part of a card. Or maybe you want to only use two of the layers. And with any SVG file, you can change the size of the file and the colors you cut them out of for a variety of different looks.

I used three different card stocks for my project. The heart is made with layering Pop-Tone Razzleberry as the top layer, Stardream Metallic in Kunzite, and the bottom solid heart layer in Bright Silver Foil.

I cut the three different layers of cardstock on a Cricut Maker. I set the size of the heart to 5″ tall.

You can see how pretty those detailed layers are and they would work well individually as well as together. A totally different idea would be to use them as stencils.

Weave a Ribbon Greeting Card

ribbon card

I had an idea for weaving ribbon through a card and here is the result. I love how you can change the look by changing the color of the ribbons. What about trying paper strips instead? Don’t add the bow and add a sentiment strip instead would also change the look of the card. It is so versatile.

I used this beautiful Stardream Metallic Crystal cardstock. The cardstock is smooth and metallic. The cardstock has a mica pearlescent coating on both sides. It really is beautiful and shimmery in person. Changing the color of the cardstock would also change the look of the card – again so versatile.

I cut the SVG file on a Cricut Maker. The cardstock is heavy, you might find cutting it twice will help.

Here are all the parts I used to make the card. I used an additional piece of cardstock inside the front flap of the card because one of the ribbon strips was sheer. Depending on the ribbon or paper strips you choose this might not be necessary.

tape inside

I chose to use double-stick tape inside my card to hold the ribbon ends in place. Using a stamp pad to hold back the ribbons while placing the tape was a big help.

Wrapped Vase Decor

Making a wrapped vase decor piece with CutCardStock.

with CutCardStock

Vase Decor

This wrapped decor piece was really fun to make. I am using a tall vase from the Dollar Tree and wrapping it with Stardream Metallic Bronze cardstock. My initial plan was just to do the wrap but when I saw the pieces that were weeded out of the cardstock, they looked like petals to me and I just couldn’t let those go to waste. And I am glad I didn’t because the addition of the flowers really adds to the vase.

bronze stardream cardstock

I used this beautiful Stardream Metallic Bronze cardstock. The cardstock is smooth and metallic. The base of the cardstock is black with a mica pearlescent coating on both sides. It really is beautiful and shimmery in person.

This cardstock is thick, it’s 105#. I tend to use washi tape to make sure it doesn’t slip or move while cutting. I used a setting of 100# cardstock. Cutting it twice would definitely help.

flower materials

I couldn’t waste those petal shapes. Making a double-layered flower, I added a center of gold and a green metallic embellishment dot. Plus I have more petal shapes I can use for another project.

Video Tutorial:

close-up

Here you can see a close-up of the flower as well as the wrap around the vase. The pattern the wrap projects with a light inside is beautiful. I chose to add an electric tea light into the vase, I am not sure about a real candle with paper on the outside.

Christmas Tree Decor – free SVG

Cut a Christmas Tree for your festive holiday decor with a free SVG file.

Christmas Tree Decor

What a fun Christmas decor piece to make. You can choose to add a light that creates wonderful shadows or just leave it as it is. I chose to add a gold star to the top but the file comes complete with a star in the same color as the tree. There is also a separate star included if you want to add a different color as I did. Wouldn’t it be fun to make a few of these in different sizes for a mantle?

I used this beautiful Bonsai cardstock that has a slight texture and cut it on a Cricut Maker at a setting of 100#. The cardstock is 80# cover weight but cuts really well at a slightly larger setting. The gold stars were cut from Stardream Metallic Gold. Be sure to cut two, one for each side of the tree. The gold cardstock is smooth, metallic, and heavier than the green so be sure to change your cutting settings.

The SVG file comes with cut and score lines. You will need to set the lines to score before cutting. The file isn’t that detailed but the folding does take a bit of patience and care. The video below will walk you through the folding process.

with light

Here you can see a close-up of the tree with a color-changing electric tea light inside. Although it is not very dark, you can begin to see the cool shadows that are cast from the tree. (please do not use a real candle, the paper will catch fire. – do I really need to say this?)

Snowflake Box :: Free SVG

Make this festive snowflake box for your holiday gift giving with the free SVG file.

with CutCardStock

snowflake box

Just in time for your holiday gift-giving is this free SVG file to make a Snowflake Box. Or if you need a plain box, just remove the design element and you have a standard square box template. The great thing about this box design is that you can make it and then store it flat until you need it.

I used Habanero cardstock.

cricut maker

I cut the file on a Cricut Maker at a setting of 100#. The cardstock is 80# cover weight but cuts really well at a slightly larger setting.

The SVG file comes with cut and score lines. You will need to set the lines to score before cutting. The file comes with a square shape to insert into the top of the box. However, I just freehand cut mine to save time. I suggest using wet glue to insert the top piece as well as the seal on the side of the box. It tends to hold better than other options.

Video Tutorial:

open box

Here you can see the box together and open ready for the gift to be placed inside. You really don’t need anything additional. The box will hold itself close and since there is a decoration on the box, no ribbon is needed either.

Above is a close-up of the snowflake decoration on the top of the box. I think adding some decorative gems to the circles could make this extra special. You might also consider using acetate or vellum instead of cardstock for the insert.

top fold notecards

Sometimes it is really nice to have a simple but elegant notecard on hand for when you need to write a quick note. The SVG file for this notecard can be adapted into a few different styles. The image above shows one with a color insert that can be changed to any color you desire. Or leave the notecard plain like the card on the right. You can stamp to add a sentiment or add additional design elements if you desire.

The Royal Sundance Card Stock in Brilliant White is the foundation for the notecard.

Use a personal cutting machine that works with an SVG file. I used a Cricut Maker at a setting of 100#. Because the design is 8.5″ x 11″, and the card stock is the same size, you have to pay attention to the alignment on your mat. The file will make two cards from one sheet of card stock.

Video Tutorial:

close-up detail

The close-up image above shows the cutting detail of the SVG file, the color insert, and the beautiful texture of the Royal Sundance card stock. It also shows how well the cardstock cuts the delicate centers of the petals.

Making a set of these notecards would make for a nice gift. As an option, you could insert a different color into each one of the notecards for a rainbow set of cards.

The SVG file for the Notecard is available at: [Floral Notecard]

If you would like to make a notepad with the same design, there is an SVG file for that as well. You can find it at: [Floral Notepad]

Designing a Leaf Letterhead

decor piece

This leaf letterhead svg file is very versatile. I’ve created a finished decor piece with it to show you how it could be used. The design was created to be used in a variety of different ways like a letter, menu, invitation, announcement, and any other way you can imagine. You don’t have to put another piece behind the design, or on top of it as shown. It is just one option for this file.

The Royal Sundance Card Stock in Brilliant White is the star of this post and the card stock that was cut. It’s joined with Stardream Metallic Gold and Glama Card Stock in Kraft. The poem was printed using my Cricut Maker and the Kraft card stock but it could also be printed on a printer.

Cricut Maker

Use a personal cutting machine that works with an SVG file. I am using a Cricut Maker for cutting and writing. Because the design is 8.5″ x 11″, and the card stock is the same size, you have to pay attention to the alignment on your mat. The Kraft card stock was written on and cut on the Cricut Maker too. I used a 0.4 black Cricut pen for the writing.
