Espresso Yourself ~ Cards In 2 Ways | Helen Gullett

Hello everyone... Helen is here and today I have 2 cards that I created using the Espresso Yourself Cutting File, one of the new cutting files from The Cut Shoppe that just released last week.


On these cards, I am using both positive and negative cuts. This way, you can use to make 2 cards with just 1 cutting file. 

On my cut out, I modified the Espresso Yourself cutting file a little bit. Instead of the steamy heart image, I replaced it with one of the mugs from the Cuppa Joe cutting file


On this first card, I added the words on dark brown/white polkadots paper with dries-clear adhesive glue. After that I fussy cut the extra paper off the words.

I added some shadow on the words using Vintage Photo Distress Ink and foam applicator. After that I added on the card with 3D foam tape for extra dimension to them. I love how those words turned out, they look like chipboard words. On the background, I added a softer look patterned paper. 


On this second card, I added the cut out panel on a light brown/white polkadots patterned paper with dries clear adhesive glue and then I added the whole panel on a white card. 

Using digital cutting files, it quick and easy way to create handmade cards.
