Supah Cute Cut File

Here is a sample I made with my new Lots of Letters 2 cut file!  How simple it was to cut this border with the Silhouette, then stamp on the matching flower border in GKD Red Hot.  Place it on your card where you want it (don't you love it vertically like this?) and stamp the lowercase letters from Lots of Letters inside each of the windows in GKD Warm Cocoa.  Remove the cut border and then add the patterned paper (GKD Journey of the Heart, super cute with these stamp sets!) and strip of Red Hot (cut with scalloped scissors) to one side.  Use foam squares to pop up the border over the letters and add some of the cut file's leaves, stamped with the Lots of Letters 2 leaves in Grass Green.  Last I added some sequins in between the flowers for sparkle.  Base is GKD Innocent Pink.

Tip:  When you peel your cut pieces off the mat, there will be a lot of circles left over from the negative parts of the border strips.  These are perfect for stamping letters into and popping up onto your cards, or popping up OVER the borders to add another layer of dimension. So be sure to save those for later. :)
Have a terrific day!  (you cutie)


  1. This is wonderful Melanie. I sure do like the cut files. I will be getting that. Thanks. I love the circles that are left behind. I can use all of the cuts. Perfect. :)

  2. I love this card and the pattern papers are perfect with your cutfile showcasing those "cutie" letters.

  3. Oh that is 'wicked' cute.....LOVE your Boston accent! ;)

  4. First I LOVE the possibilities with this stamp set. Thanks for all of that.
    Second, I had to laugh at your Cameo mat. Mine looks equally as "used", LOL. Too funny!
    I just ran off my set, and I thought hey, I am keeping these inner circles, so, it was funny to see your tip, to keep them.
    Great minds... LOL I wish! ha
    I can't wait to play!
