A Silhouette Studio Print and Cut project
Two things you need to know about me:
- I love a good pun
- I really don’t like olives
Sometimes I let the olive part slide – small black olive slices are fine on a pizza. If there are chunks in a salad but they can hide in the lettuce, OK. Also, my olive ban does not extend to olive oil (it’s a texture thing, not a taste issue).
For Valentine’s Day, I put together a punny card featuring the Olive.
There are a lot of theories on how the “xoxo” became known for hugs and kisses. I think it’s neat that the convention has stood the test of time.
This card uses them in a bold graphic style to send a hug and kiss through the mail. Perfect for Valentine’s Day!
With the cheerful flower cut out card, it was really tricky to get the colored panel on centered. Worst of all, that was one of the final steps in making the card, so you could ruin all your work right at the last second. This card takes the difficultly level down a notch in assembly by providing an extra panel for folding in.
Here’s a happy flower card perfect to send with your choice of an upbeat message.
The card is easily customized by choosing the color of the inside front panel. You can use any plain or printed stock for this panel. I’ve set up my card to fit an A2 envelope, so that front panel isn’t very big. That means you can get several panels from a sheet of paper.
The version I made uses a perky yellow panel made from simple construction paper. Today has been cloudy and gloomy, so I’m hoping it will bring a little sunshine into someone’s life.
