New Year, New Skill
The new challenge over at Scrappy Frogs is to try something new! So for Christmas my husband bought me a Silhouette Cameo and what better time to give the print and cut a try then for this challenge. I do have to say it went without a hitch for which I am grateful.
My card base is 4 1/4" X 5 1/2" white card stock. I added a black mat cut at 4" X 5 1/4" and then my patterned paper cut to 3 3/4" X 5". For my trees, I used the print and cut feature on my silhouette with these four season trees, I followed the directions to print the registration marks and sent it to my printer. Then I adhered the paper to my Silhouette mat and asked it to recognize the registration marks and cut. It did an awesome job. Finally I attached each of the trees to my card with some foam tape and stamped my Happy Birthday sentiment. I think this would be a good birthday card for either my male or female friends don't you agree?
I hope you will play along with us for this challenge and try something new.
