Hi Friends!! Guess what today is? Today is the release of Pink Cat Studio digital images and with this release PCS is going Hawaiian! Yay!!!! Aren't the images the cutest images or what. Before I begin, Pink Cat Studio has new members to the design team. I would like to welcome Jane of Whoopsie Daisy, Marley of Marley Scrapcards, Piali of Touch of Creation, and Rachel of the Paper Crafting Place Be sure to stop by the Pink Cat Studio blog to check out the beautiful cards the design team created.
I'm from Hawaii so I had a BLAST creating these cards and the templates/files! My first project is an "Ipu Card" and "Ipu Box"!! What is an Ipu? It's a hula instrument that hula dancers use as shown in the picture.
I created an Ipu Card template as well as an Ipu Box. I provided the SVG file for your Sure Cuts A Lot for those who want to cut the template with your Cricut Expression. I also provided a "hand cut" template for those who don't have a Cricut.
Just to let you know. . .I extended the width and height of my Ipu to create a wider shape when uploading to SCAL. If you're cutting the template by hand. . .adjust the width and height of the card and box as desired. Unfortunately, because you can only print on an 8 x 11 1/2" paper, your box will be smaller than my sample. It's better reason why you should buy a Cricut Expression and Sure Cuts A Lot 2 program! LOL!
For SCAL users, if you adjust the width too widely, you will need to cut off a bit of the side of the box so it won't extend above the top curve of the box.
Just to let you know, I colored all my images with my Copic Markers. I won't go into detail about the cards and projects because my post will be too long.
When the card cuts on your Cricut, a circle window will be cut out because I originally created this template with a circle window. To cover the center window, just cut a circle designer paper and glue it to the front of the card to cover up the window. That is what I did with my card.
Sorry for the long post but I had a lot of stuff to share. I'm so happy now that I'm able to upload SVG files. If you have any problems with the files, can you let me know. Please credit my blog if you're planning to use the files or templates. I'm sharing the files for your personal use.
Anyway. . .that's it! Hope you all have a beautiful Thursday!!
