Fall Themed Notecards

By Cards, Planner Stationary & Accessories

Hi All,

For today’s project I wanted to create a card that could be used as a name card or place card holder at thanksgiving dinner. I like these because they are small enough to not be entirely ‘in the way’ of everything else that is on a table, but they are definitely bold enough to make an impression. I have 2 different color schemes that I created, and I really can’t choose which one is my favorite. P.S. there’s something about burlap that I love!

Even if these aren’t used during thanksgiving, they make great tags to attach to a gift.

Experimenting with SCAL2

By Cards

Harvest

Hi all,

Today I’d like to share a card I made using a software called Sure Cuts A Lot 2 (SCAL2). SCAL really opens a whole new door of images and designing by allowing me to trace drawings as well as design my own images in Illustrator and then cut them on my Cricut.

I wanted to try making a thanksgiving card that wasn’t traditional. I didn’t want to create a simple pumpkin or turkey card, but more of a harvest theme. I found an image online and used SCAL to trace the image. It was a bit time consuming to fit the pieces together like a puzzle but I am happy with the way it turned out.

This was purely experimental as I wanted to know just how detailed I could get with the images I trace or create. Next time I may use less detail – but it was a great learning experience.Thanks for visiting!
