Part 2, Day 4 - A Cut Above

After the class yesterday I have had a ball designing a Silhouette Print and Cut file.  Kristina gave a fabulous video demonstration on how to go about making an image to print and cut and I set myself to work on it this morning.

This is a picture of the cutting mat, after I'd taken off the waste card stock around my printed and cut images...

I designed and made the "Happy Birthday" card topper as one whole piece and added duplicated flowers exactly the same as those on the topper so I could use my glossy accents on them and raise them up on top of the printed flowers on the topper base.

The other flowers are from the Silhouette site which I downloaded, printed and cut, just to use up the space available on my card stock.  I will try and post what I make with those later.

Here is the finished card......

I used Whisper White card stock from Stampin' Up as the base and decided to stamp another piece with the polka dot stamp as a mat, mounted the topper that I'd made and cut, finally finishing off with the glossy extra flowers.

It was quite time consuming, but I enjoyed every minute of it.

The design idea came from this card I saw on Shari Carroll's lovely blog.

Enjoy the rest of your day and thanks for taking time to look at my blog today.

Happy crafting.

  1. That is a very fun card, love the glossy accents on your flowers. At first I thought you had cut them out of vinyl, wondered how you got pink and yellow together! lol
