A Hundred Hearts

Welcome Friends!  And welcome Spring!  Makes my heart happy.   Here's a card I made using the Sketch posted on the SBC Facebook Page.   I made this card using my Silhouette Cameo.  My tip: If using Silhouette, design and save your card layout to enable re-use of your creation. 

  • Sketch:  SBC Facebook
  • Designer Paper:  Silhouette
  • Ribbon:  Michael's
  • Sentiment:  unknown author

A2 sized card = 5.5" x 4.25"

Starting with the SBC FB Sketch, I created an outline and layout of how I wanted my card.

Snapshot of my Silhouette mat and layout prior to printing and cutting
I used banners found in the Silhouette store and color-filled them using the basic colors found in the Silhouette software.  I always save an image of how the final card should look on the left (off of the cutting mat).  That way, if I ever want to make this card again, I'll know how it should look when finished.   Designing your card this way produces a Print and Cut version that can easily be reproduced (handy when making cards for OWH).

Top layer is one piece and attached using foam tape.  Edges were inked using Tim Holtz Faded Jeans Distress Ink.

Inside of card is just one layer as well.  All printed and cut on the Silhouette.
