Silhouette Cameo cards with Minc foiling

Hello Crafty friends,

I had lots of fun making these cards using my Silhouette Cameo and my Minc foiling machine.

To be quite honest, I've had my Minc for almost a year and haven't used it much, it was away in a cupboard.....you know how it is!  Most of my cards and projects these days are Silhouette based because I still love Silhouette crafting more than any other type of crafting.  To mix things up a bit and to start as I mean to go on this year (use what the crafty supplies I have!), I took my Minc out of it's hiding place and put it to work.

I made a few of these cards.  It took me a while to come up with a plan and to make the Silhouette file so whilst the Minc was out, it seemed a good idea to make more than two!

Here are a couple of pics of the ones that I posted for January birthdays.....




I was rather pleased with how they turned out!

The next picture shows you the two pieces that I used, which I printed on our laser printer and cut out using my Silhouette Cameo.....


The birds on the branch image is from the Silhouette store and I used fonts on my computer for the words.

Wishing you all lots of Silhouette crafting time, using what you have!

Love the bird on branch silhouette look. Clean and simple looking, whilst leaving the recipient to wonder 'how did she do that'.
