Blooming Birthday!

Before I move on to today's post, I wanted to discuss Online Ordering options with you. When you place an online order with me, there is an option of "NO CONTACT" there for you to check off. What does this mean? It means that you do not want to be contacted by me as your demonstrator but most of all, it means I can't send you my monthly FREE card kit as a thank you because I do not know who ordered and I am not aware of your address. Do not check that option if you want me to thank you *wink**wink*!

You know I've been experimenting with my eCutter right? Well that's what I did for today's card. I found a cut file in the shape of a watering can that I just fell in love with and I wanted to make a card out of the shape. So I placed two of the same cut file on my work area on my computer and this is what I came up with:

Isn't it just the cutest card? When I placed both cut files on my work space on my computer, I turned one 180 degrees, overlapped them where I wanted the card to bend and welded them together. Then all I had to do was cut it with my machine, score it and fold! This is what the card looks like opened and flat:

And then folded flat for mailing. I made sure the card did not measure larger than 5 1/5" x 4 1/4" when it was all cut and assembled so that it would fit in our envelopes:

The Flower Patch stamp set is so perfect for this card. I love the color choice I decided to go with as I wanted the card to scream summer flowers. I'll be making more of these shaped cards now that I have it all figured out!

Thanks for stopping by to visit me today!
