Use your Silhouette to make a card template
Today, I wanted to show you how I took one of my favorite cards, and made it with my Silhouette (Rocco).
I recently made this card for my friends who moved into their house. You may remember…I made them this subway art sign here, as well.
Before Rocco, I had a paper template that I would trace onto paper and then cut out.
It occurred to me that I could recreate it on my Silhouette. I used the line and shape tools to draw the parts of the house, and now I have a template.
I even saved a screen shot so you could see it.
The tiny windows were cut down the middle, and I perforated them so they would fold back nice and easy.
I love to make this card with many different papers, but I don’t see why you couldn’t use one whole sheet of card stock to make it easy peasy easy.
I didn’t forget the back…
This stamp already has heart shaped balloon carved into it, but I wanted mine to be more dimensional. I masked the hearts with painter’s tape, stamped it in the ink, and then removed the tape before stamping the image. I added the heart sequins using a touch of tacky glue.
If you have any questions about this, please don’t hesitate to ask me…okay? Okay!
