I started my Silhouette journey as a paper crafter and it has expanded from there. But, I always still love getting paper out and playing with it.
I love being able to make custom cards and unique items with my Silhouette machines.
It was my husband’s birthday last month, so I needed a card.
When you open this file, here is how it looks.
The first thing I do is ungroup the file and then use the Fill Color Panel to add color to the design to make it easier to work with.
Now, I place one color on my mat, move the pieces of the design onto the virtual design mat and cut that color. Then I move those pieces off the virtual design mat and move another color on to cut, until I have all the pieces of my card cut out for assembly.
Normally, I don’t use a spray adhesive but this time, I thought it would be perfect since the card front had so many twists and turns.
A quick spray and it was ready to smooth down on the card base.
It was the perfect time to test my new Portrait 2 out.
I used Close to My Heart Cardstock, a Scrapbook Adhesive by 3L tape runner, spray adhesive and a silver brad to complete this card.
There are so many projects you can complete using your Silhouette machines! I hope you try something new today!
