The Cutting Cafe - Hybrid Birthday Card

Hello everyone,

I have been a bit behind in blogging lately and have not been crafting as much as I would like... I spent the Independence Day weekend cleaning my crafting space, moving around furniture and beginning the supply sort. The Supply Purge is about to begin in earnest stay tuned for great deals and give-aways! I have a major challenge that when I craft one seemingly simple card my craft space is a disastor afterwards... My goal was to use supplies and put them away as I go... I have to constantly remind myself to do this or the pile of supplies, paper scraps, gluedots, glitter and markers is crazy. I am open to any tips on working smarter so you don't have to work so hard picking everything up after a craft making session.

I feel like the space is finally working better for me now and I thought I would use a really cute digital set called the "Birthday Fun Set" from Regina at The Cutting Cafe.

As I mentioned the images and sentiment are from the Cutting Cafe. The card layout uses the Mojo Monday design for this week.

This is technically a Hybrid Card because I used Adobe Illustrator to digitally colour the images and re-size them to be mini postage stamp size. They are super easy to colour with Copics too but I wanted to play with the images in Illustrator.

Supplies: PDF images from the Cutting Cafe, Adobe Illustrator, white card base from Neenah, decorative scissors from Provo Craft, Martha Stewart red and white tissue paper, brown cardstock from Recollections, red cardstock from American Craft. Scallop cut with Silhouette and oval cut with the Colluzle, and brown satin ribbon from the stash.
