Make a Wish ,Cut file Available

I just love the New A Child's Year cartridge so I decided to make a few simple birthday cards. They are A2 size which is small for me, but I thought it would be nice to have something that is easy to send for a change. They are a Design Team project for Custom Crops and the article and .cut file are available HERE. They also only require 2 carts, Plantin Schoolbook and A Child's Year.

For the inside I mounted another silhouette right behind the shaped front to stamp or write a sentiment.

I thought the images would be great for layouts or also make cute tags so I included the cuts without the card backing as well. I like these cuts even without the patterned paper and embellies. Just a little embossing and doodling and I was good to go.


  1. Oh boy I am first this morning, these are adorable, I need to put that cartridge further up on my wish list, lol. I love the colors and of course all your marvelous detail. Hugs

  2. ooh spooky Donna I have my Childs year handbook in my hand as I came across this! Fabulous creations just fabulous! The colours, patterns and your designs are stunning!

  13. I Love these cards.
    I want this cartridge so bad.
    I also love the colors you used.

  14. Darn...I don't have the Child's Year cartridge or I'd be getting the cut file for sure. What a great combination of texture! Maybe I'll have to the the cartridge for my daughter in law so I can borrow it!

  15. How the heck did I miss this one? I feel like I've been in a time warp! I think we spoke about these, didn't we? Love the shaped front with the silhouette image on the inside. Very cool!
