Top fold bracket border edged card

This is a card I made for my sister-in-law. I copied it from a card in the January 2010 issue of Card Maker Magazine.


There is a light gray cardstock base cut at 4 1/4 x 11 that is folded at the top.
The next panel is pink cardstock cut at 4 1/8 x 5 3/8.
( the inside is covered in two identical pink panels)
The black panel is 4 x 5 1/4 and has a bracket border edge.
The large white panel is cut at 3 7/8 x 5 1/8 with a bracket border edge at the bottom.
I used the Swiss Dots embossing folder on the bottom 2/3 of the top white panel,
I used the same bracket border to make the smaller gray 1 3/4 inch gray square and 1 1/2 inch white square.
The 1 inch pink heart was covered in clear micro-marbles.
I added two flourishes from a file I found on the web (sorry I don't remember where)
and finished it off with small rhinestones along the flourishes and at the bottom
and a black ribbon.

I made the cut files in Inkscape and used Sure Cuts A Lot to cut them with my Cricut.
(what did we crafters ever do before the Cricut???)
The same brackets were used for the bottom border and the square shapes.
(I don't remember which font I used)

Here are the cutting files for everything except the flourishes.

Me again :o) I managed to pick up the info on the roses as I mentioned in my previous comment just now :o) I have tried and tried and tried to download your cutting files for this card, plus the brackets (black) on a previous card, and it will not load. Can you help?? I just love them.

How fab that you can re-create cards from the magazine, who would have thought that years ago hey? Hope I get to be this clever!!!

Many thanks
