LOVE Block Card

Ecal Software
Black Soot Distress Ink
Adhesive Backed Pearls
White Gel Pen
K and Co. Pattern Paper
Recollections Card Stock
Font: Miss Scarlet Regular
Card is 4.25 x 4.25 inches

This card was created entirely using the Ecal software. I used 2 inch squares for the base of each letter/shape. I used shapes that came with the software. I placed them on the squares and sized them to fit. I used the font Miss Scarlet and put them on each shape and sized accordingly. After I cut out the shapes I inked everything with the black soot distress ink. I went around the edge of the red heart and red square with the white gel pen. I added the pearls to the letter E and I popped the shapes with the E and the L up on pop dots.

SVG free file: Little Scraps of Heaven Designs
K and Co Pattern Paper
White Gel Pen
Fonts: CK Man's Print(I'm about you) and CK Freestyle(Nuts)

Card size is 5 1/2 by 8 1/2 inches. I used a free file from LSHD and cut out all the pieces. The small peanuts were not part of the file, I added them. I added little cut marks in the small peanuts to give them some texture. The large character is 5.498 inches tall by 3.083 inches wide. The font was cut at .79 inch for the man's print and 1.09 inches for the freestyle letters. I inked around all the edges of the peanut character and used pop dots behind the heart. Added some white gel pen to the letters and his hat.

Valentine Tri-Shutter Card

  • Sizzix eclips Machine
  • Ecal Software
  • Recollections Cardstock : Gemstones paper pack
  • Unknown Pattern Paper
  • Font: LD Old Country
  • SVG Free files: Heart Lace Border, Roses, Heart Balloon
  • Card base is from the file  I created,  It cuts 11.75 for a 12x12 mat
  • Pink Ink

I have the file set up to cut and score the card base. I also created a file to cut all the mats for eash section of the card.  I then create the pieces using the card base as a template. All the SVG files for this card came from I then copy and paste all the shapes on another mat and then cut everything out at once. I inked all the edges of the mats and then I glued each mat down in each section. I then assembled each cut out and glued them down. I then glued each letter down, I could have welded them together but I left them seperate. For the borders on the top and bottom I took two borders and flipped one upside down and welded them together and then took the top piece and just glued it across the middle of the border.  I then took all the little hearts left behind and glued them randomly around the card middle.

Faith and Hope Card

Sizzix Eclips Machine
Ecal Software
Recollection Cardstock
Pattern Paper Unknown
SVG files: Butterflies, Get Well Soon
Font: CK Block
Stickles: Crystal
Bright Pink Ink

I used SVG files from  I made the card base in ecal and all the mats to cut out at 11.75. After making the base I took a square and fit it in block to come up with the sizes. The butterflies were sized inside the blocks so I don't have exact measurements. I also fit the words in the boxes and used the sizes that came out. The four pink butterflies I left the wings unglued  to give dimension. I popped the 2 larger butterflies up on pop dots. I inked around all the mats and small butterflies in bright pink ink. I added stickles to the edges of the butterflies.

Candy Cane Gingerbread Bear

Sizzix Eclips Machine
ECAL Software for the Eclips Machine
Used the new ECAL software to make this cute little bear. The file came from Designs on Cloud Nine. It was a free file. I love this new software, very easy to use and you can even do a print and cut. Can't wait to play some more with the machine and software.
