Valentine Bendy Card

Have you seen the new Bendy/Bendi cards? I hadn't until Regina designed a set of them on the Cutting Cafe and that is our challenge for this week. To create my card I used the Bendi-Bendy Card Template and Cutting File as well as Valentine Family and Friends Printable Stamp Set and Valentines' Day Mini Words.

Most of Regina's files come with a SVG Measurement guide in case your cutting machine doesn't open it to size. I use a Silhouette and sometimes the files are to size, but this one wasn't. Rather than copy and paste all the images to one mat to resize, I decided to just make the size that showed up on my mat. (this was due to the fact that I have a head cold, my eyes are watering like crazy and my head is in a fog LOL) But...I think the small size turned out kinda cute. When folded flat it measures 4 3/8" x 3 5/8".

I decided to go with a Valentine theme, since that is right around the corner. From the borders option, I cut one of the large hearts to go at the top of the card and 3 of the smaller hearts border for the tabs and for the inside of the card. I trimmed off one of the hearts on the border to fit the length of the sentiment on the inside.
