Burnished Love and my Cut File

Today I saw this really cool cut file that made a fold over flap card.  I wanted that cut file BUT found that it was only available for Silhouette cutters.  Grrrrrr........     Well, I thought maybe I'd try my hand at making my own cut file with the same idea.  Found a corner motif that I thought looked nice.  Put it in the corners and added the scallop borders.  Sounds fast but it took TONS of time!

I liked the way it turned out but found that with the motif I picked, it wasn't so great for the fold over card without a backing to keep the little cut pieces from bending out of place. 

I used a technique from the new Stampin Companion CD called Burnished Embossing.  It was fun and looks great.  I hope you enjoy the pics.  If you like the cut file (.jpg and Scal2....I think), send me your e-mail and I'll ship it off to you.  ;-)   (I did punch the eyelet holes with my punch)

 That cute little link for the CD is on your top right!

That is very pretty, Ann..... not many people appreciate the amount of work we put into our cards. I only send very special people cards that I go to that much trouble to make. My 3 DD being some of those that are that special. LOL
Thanks for sharing your beautiful card.
