I've been using a friend's old one, but it was starting to stall on me, and I wanted to be able to make larger pieces, so I justified it as a belated birthday gift.
Since Maddie needed some thank you cards for her birthday gifts of last week, I thought I'd create them with the Silhouette so I could play a little.
These are small 5x5's and the colour strip was just some scrap paper I had laying around…. I think they turned out pretty cute.
I always love seeing sets of cards - it has more impact than seeing one at a time - when you can see the colour assortment altogether.
There were a few other images I wanted to try cutting, so I puttered a little bit and made these:
I'm not sure about the lilac and apricot, but I think the daisy image done in white with a yellow background would be pretty… maybe as a teacher appreciation gift?
So my job of making the cards is done - now I just have to battle with my 8 year old and get her to write out her notes of thanks.
Wish me luck!
Have a great one!
