Christmas Cards – 2015
Inspiration for these came from the stack of holiday cards I can never bear to throw away.
I used my Silhouette Cameo to put them together. I didn’t have a the PixScan mat at the time, so I took photos of all the card fronts and pulled them into the Silhouette design software. For each one (or two if they were small) I would place the ornament shape over the area I wanted, then sent it to cut. I also used the printable foil sticker sheets to cut out the ornament tops.
I like using Strathmore stamping announcement cards for their bright white and smooth finish. I did a quick spray of gold paint on the card fronts before pasting down the ornaments and their tops. The finishing touch was drawing the strings with a fine black pen.
