I love to make people feel good and happy about their accomplishments, big or small, and I can never get enough of the smiles and pride I see on my customers' faces when they look at a finished project.

Laser Cut Painted Harvest - Card Tutorial

PaintedHarvestTutorial 01

LASER CUT PAINTED HARVEST CARD


Have you discovered the beauty of the Bird Ballad Laser-Cut Cards & Tin? If not, I think you will be surprised at how quickly you can create a stunning card with them. I'm excited to show them to you in this tutorial.

The tin is gorgeous and perfect for gift-giving and stylish storage. The set also includes 12 Very Vanilla laser-cut cards and 12 scallop-edged envelopes. Even better, they are one of the retiring items that are on sale! I'm also going to miss the Painted Harvest stamp set, so I thought I'd combine them and retiring In-Colours to wish them all a fond farewell. Enjoy!

dn Tech LabelSlider Tropical s1 Mar201. Cut & Glue

Cut Lovely Lipstick cardstock to 4-1/16" x 5-7/16". Open a Bird Ballad Laser-Cut Card. On the inside, add a very fine line of Multipurpose Liquid Glue around the edge that frames the laser-cut area. Add a few dots of glue around the laser-cut image.
