Have you seen my SVG Card Cut 9 at Doodle Pantry?

Hello Everyone!

I thought I would share a little about my Card Cut 9 with you today!

Card Cut 9 is an SVG cutting file for use on a Silhouette, Zing, or any e-cutting machine that you can import SVG files in to....sometimes that might take Make-the-Cut or Sure-Cuts-A-Lot programs, but this is so much fun! Worth checking in to!


by Lori McCroskey

 Go to Card Cut 9 here!

Let me show you how easily this goes together!

First, cut out your SVG pieces for the card layout that you like.
Next, size your digital images to fit in the layer openings and print them out.
 Start layering your SVG pieces over your digital image.
 Add another layer.
 And another layer.
Isn't that just cute?????
 Next, I'm taking my sentiment and layering it in the sentiment SVG cut.

 The border piece is very thin, so I run it through my little Xryon sticker maker.
You want one of these if you don't have one :-)
Nice Christmas gift!

 Now, that's not so hard is it?
 Cute cards in a snap!

Would you like to see more samples?
Ok, twist my arm!

 Yes, there are sentiment bands for the inside of the cards!
Just layer your sentiments under them to create a very impressive looking inside to your cards!

Tomorrow, I have a new release at Doodle Pantry!
It is so cute....I can't wait to show you!

Have a great day and see you tomorrow!

Let's get cutting with Card Cut 8 SVG! Mid month release at Doodle Pantry!

Card Cut 8 SVG cutting File

 Card Cuts that make using your digital image sets a snap!
I have been trying to create the perfect card cut for using digis.  
What would make it perfect?  
It would be perfect if:
1.  I could cut pieces out card pieces ahead of time.
2.  I could cut out by hand or with a paper cutter the images for the card and the edges would be hidden.
3.  I could use background papers, either printed to match or papers from my stash
4.   It must look sensational when done!

Well, I think I am getting closer with this card cut, I must say!
Take a look below at how this card goes together!

Look how simply this card goes together!


 How do you layer your sentiments?
Print your sentiments to a size that fits your window.

 Lay your frame around your sentiment and trace.
Trim your sentiments out just inside of the traced line so it doesn't show when you glue them together.
 Apply glue to your frame or make it into a sticker.
 Adhere to your sentiment.
Isn't that great?
Add your embellishments and look what you get!
This is just adorable!
I couldn't quit making cards!
I used printed paper from the set for this card.....

I used some of my paper stash for this card......

 I embossed some paper for this card.....
I even have a window for the inside of your card to make it super duper easy.
Just layer the sentiment behind the window band, add the outline band and look how cute it is!

I hope you have a wonderful day!
Now, go make a card and bless someone today!

If you have any questions or comments, I would love to hear from you!

Time to cut some cards with my Card Cut 7 SVG cutting file!

Hello Everyone!

I can't believe the summer is over already!  I took the summer off to do some R&R with the kids and family.  I did some deep cleaning and am now in the process of pricing for a garage sale....what a great feeling!

I'm ready to do something creative again!

I've been playing around with my new SVG file, Card Cut 7.  I don't know about the rest of you, but I NEED simple and quick.  I NEED colored digis.  I NEED something that can be half made and put together quickly for all those last minute card needs we have! 

 I hope this SVG file fits the bill for everyone like it does me!

On the front of the card is a focal point window.
There is an outer sentiment window.
 There is an inner sentiment/image window.
Print digi.
Trim with scissors.
Paste digi behind window.

Here is a grouping of cards I made using Doodle Pantry's Everyday Jargon and Jargon Additions digital sets.  I absolutely love these sets and they work for the Card Cut 7 SVG cutting set really well!
As you can see in the above picture, the card and front sentiment window and the inner window all cut in one piece!  I also have scored the folding lines so you know exactly where to fold!  If you cut them out ahead of time, all your pieces are together and you can remember how to assemble it.  All you have to do is add the matching accent layers!

This picture shows the inside of the card.  I wanted you to see how cute the iinner window of the card was!

I also added the option of having a sentiment window and a GIFT CARD window!
Just pair this with a birthday digital set or Christmas digital set and you have a beautiful gift card!

Look how quick and easy this card folds together hiding the edges of your digis in the windows!

Precut a bunch of these card bases.
Precut various colors of the accent pieces shown in picture 2.


Here is the finished card!
 Isn't that cute!?

Thanks for dropping by!  Let me know what you think of my newest SVG cutting set!
