Freebie Cut File - Week #8

Hey all! This week's cut file is inspired by the edge punches by Martha. I've really wanted at least one or two of them since they first came out...but there's no way I feel I can justify spending $15 on one punch. Aaahh, the life of a cheapskate!

So, since I'm still too cheap, I decided I would try to make my own. It's not quite as elegant as hers, but I thought it was kind of fun and pretty versatile. I made it as a .svg so I could resize it as needed and put two together and weld them if need be as well. You could also make it into an entire card by just adding another rectangle to make the card the size you need. Well, there it is, $15 saved!

And for those who are curious, the pear came from the free font Harold's Pips. It's a really cute little font with other things like cherries, an anchor, a cute butterfly, umbrella, etc.

The cut file for today:

P.S. Thanks for the sweet comments left last time! I keep thinking that it's too bad I don't live next door to some of the people I've met through the would be so fun to be better acquainted with you! (Not to mention the fun I could have with someone else who liked this kind of stuff and lived close!) Have a great weekend!!!

Oh-that pear is CUTE! And I love the pink paisley you did it in. Love it! Maybe you could change the sentiment to "To my favorite pear-shaped figured friend" and send it to me!
