Spring - The Cutting Cafe

Today is going to be a crazy busy day.....it is set up day for Scrapfest. I thought I would start the day with something fun from The Cutting Cafe. I just LOVE their word cards and this week I played with the Spring file.

Here is the card that I made using this awesome set! The fact that it cuts out in the shape of a word is amazing in itself.....but I love how you can still embellish it to make it special.

I dug into my stash to see what I had that I could add to my card. I found this little crochet flower (no, I didn't make it) and some decorative pins. I added a little piece of yellow bakers twine and one of my favourite little tags using the Mini Words printable.

I also found this little vellum butterfly from Jenni Bowlin. I love the little pearls for the body and I thought it would work perfectly for a Spring card.

I knew it wouldn't be complete without adding some stitching. I used a fine needle and some embroidery floss and stitched down the centre of all the letters.

I hope you will visit The Cutting Cafe blog and check out what the other girls created using the different word cards.

Thanks for visiting :)
