Word Art Shaped Card

Hello.

 

I haven’t made a card in ages! So I finally got the urge. I downloaded this cute word art from www.lovesvg.com (same place I got the He sees you when you’re drinking quote).

I brought it into MTC and broke apart the words so I could move them around a bit. I overlapped the “YOU” with the other two lines and welded them together.

 

I also duplicated the YOU so I could cut it out in a different color and lay it on top.

I used the offset feature to make a background and then did it again and sized it big enough to make a 4.25 x 5.5 inch card. I copied that image and mirrored it to the left of the original and then welded those two images to make the card base.

Right after I cut all the pieces out, my computer did this horrific crash and I realized I didn’t save the file. I don’t think MTC starts making backups until you save, at least I couldn’t find one.

So boys and girls save your files. If I get a chance to recreate it, I will add the file here. It was pretty easy to do.

Last year we planted a bunch of succulents in our yard and they are blooming (along with some other flowers we didn’t plant, but they look cool). So I took the photos using those as a back drop.

My kids didn’t get the “Happy YOU day” as a birthday card. Please tell me you get it and it’s not totally lame.
