Hiring & Inspiring

My awesome brother-in-law hired me to make some Thank-you cards for his business, Nightlight Chiropractic. He sent me the files for his logo, made by Orlando Mesa at 407 Wraps & Signs based on the Orlando skyline, and since they were already vector images in Illustrator, I was able to export the layers into SCAL and cut them out with my electronic die-cutting machine.



I kept the cut-out sheets, and when my best friend was visiting recently, we used one as a mask to paint a background for this card for my friend's dad:


We also used the pop-up part! This was so much fun to make; my friend, who isn't a crafter, colored and cut out the suitcase himself.

My friend suggested that the image also looked like mountains, so I wanted to play with that idea. Here's my first try at it:


You can read more about this card in the original post.

I used the masks again to make this glittery card (for my friend's sister, actually).
It's really difficult to see in the photo, but the skyline is mirrored underneath. The top city is covered in glow-in-the dark glitter, and the bottom is covered in Prisma glitter, both adhered with sticky embossing powder.

The purse opens to reveal a sentiment from Viva Las VegaStamps: "The only time a woman came change a man is when he's a baby."

I used the cut-outs for some Father's Day cards:

Plus, it came in handy for my OSAAT DT project featuring Cool Buds by BBKakes:

I'm out of the city die cuts, but I still have some mask pieces that I look forward to using.

Thank you for visiting & for supporting my crafting,
