Guest Designer Kimberly Sisco

Hello, all!
I am excited to share a Valentine's Day card with you. And it is my pleasure to be guest designing for Miss. Kate Cuttables. When I found that I would be creating this card for the month of February I knew exactly what I wanted to create. This card features the following cut files from Miss. Kate Cuttables: Zoo Fun Bundle, Wild About You title, and Nested Hearts.

I include all the measurements for this cute little critter peek-a-boo card. I included a process video (at the end of this post) which shows how I assembled my card. I hope you enjoy!






This card measures 5" x 7" and I used a kraft cardstock for my card base. It is a larger card but I think a child would love this cute critter card.


I used my Cricut Explore for all the die cutting and Cricut Design Space to create the design. These files include a JPEG, PNG, and SVG so that it can be used with most electronic die cutting machines. I created a single panel (left) from kraft cardstock; I find this makes creating dimensional cards easier to assemble. The pink card is my main panel where my little critters come to life. I lined up a heart from the Nested Heart file which created this peek-a-boo frame.





These are the hearts that I created from the Nested Heart file. They are the same size as the heart cut outs on the main panel. I used embossing folders to add texture. It is amazing what a difference this made. These hearts measure 2.19" x 1.95". Using my main pink panel as a template I adhered the hearts to the kraft panel; I show this process in the video.


I wanted to add a layered accent panel for the front of my card. I used the Straight and Slim font in Cricut Design Space to write 'Valentine'. I offset the cream cardstock to the right (when layering; see above photo) to create interest.





For my sentiment I used the Wild About You title. I love all the layers with this sentiment. I used my Xyron Create-A-Stick to adhere the words to the shadow. The title measures 2.4" x 2.3". And it includes some fun tropical leaves.


I just smile when I look at these little critters which are from the Zoo Fun Bundle. I used the PNG file that is included in the bundle and the Print then Cut feature in Cricut Design Space to create my critters. I used Glossy Accents on the eyes and nose to bring them to life.

Here is the process video or watch on YouTube:


It was my please to create this card for Miss. Kate Cuttables; be sure to visit her store for awesome cut files.

Happy Crafting,
Kimberly
