You are Invited!

I had a lot of fun making this card for a fundraising potluck. It is a simple card (print and cut), leaving the inside for the details of the event.

I downloaded some cutlery graphics and a potluck border from Silhouette, and made a “placemat”, welding the words “You are Invited” on the upper edge.  I programed it to be cut as an outline, and glued it on a shiny linen textured cardstock (aka placemat LOL). I had some scrapbook paper that reminded me of the fun vinyl tablecloth patterns that come out for summertime bbq’s, and used that as a mat for the 5 x 7 inch top fold card blank.

Simple and quick. The inside just typed details of the event!.




As promised, here is a birthday card that could be changed by simply doing another “word art” for the card front.

I did it as a print and cut, so I only used one piece of paper for the card embellishments!

Here is what my MTC screen looked like before I cut the embellishments (the “Happy Birthday” doesn’t show up as I did not outline it)


Here is how I put it together on a 5 x 7 side fold card base:
