    The card is exquisite. I can’t wait to try it. How did you learn to make the cut files? You’ve made it so easy to download too…you’re very generous to share your talent. Thanks so much. I will post back to you when I’ve created a card that’s posted on my blog. Thanks again!

      To make cut files I set myself a challenge to learn Adobe Illustrator but it can be done with the different versions of software that come with the cutting machines. There are also free design software out there I just don’t know what they are called sorry :)

    Birdie, this is so gorgeous… i am wondering how big you made the flowers, for some reason they are downloading SO big. Thank you

      The flowers I cut were approx 3/4 of an inch, I did a few a tiny bit smaller at the top of the cake and a few a little bit bigger towards the bottom.

    I want to thank you for sharing all of your wonderful cut files. This one came along at the right time for me. I just finished making my version. When I checked my stash of paper I found I didn’t have much white with texture and buying new paper wasn’t in my budget so I set about making substitutions. First I found a white glossy cardstock for the card base. I also used it for the cake stand. The only really textured cardstock I had was a blue whitewash (the kind you sand and the color shows through), so I chose it for the swirl. I had a nice off-white pearlescent so I used that for the mat to the swirl and the crescent parts of the cake. I selected an extremely pale pink with a white swirly pattern for the cake background. I left out the inter mat because I didn’t have anything else in white or off-white. I substituted tracing paper for the velum. In assembling the card I added more layers to the flowers for fullness and stability. My card turned out very different from yours but I know the couple who are going to get this card will be thrilled. I want to thank you again for this and all your awe-inspiring cut files.

      Your card sounds great, our cards will always look different because we all have different craft supplies but that’s a good thing as they’ll all be originals :) I’m all for using up our existing stash rather than buying new, it sounds like you are doing a much better job at it than me though ;)

      Oh and using the gloss card for the cake stand was a genius idea, I bet it really looks like those lovely ceramic ones.
