This one did not turn out like I hoped. Bleh. First shot at glitter glue. I learned they are not all created equal. Still learning – someday I’ll get this layout and color stuff going…
I made this for a dear friend. I wanted to try a popup card. And I wanted a spray of flowers. This card was huge opened 12×12.
Another alignment nightmare with print and cuts that were off!!! I remember trying them a couple of times and got the same offset. Decided it was OK. The inside I printed the flowers and words. The sentiment was cut with the Cameo and glued down. Learned that cut lettering can be tricky!
I don’t even remember who this card was made for. Or where the pattern came from. (My apologies to the creator!) I remember that I didn’t like the see thru of the gears so I uncoupled everything to make a background. Took some node editing – another first for me. Such a pain it was that first time. Much easier with practice!!
Another birthday card. Using print and cut for the first time. turned into quite the challenge to get everything all aligned. Also used the sketching function for the inside sentiment. I think it turned out OK. I’m not so comfortable with pinks – I am a black/white/red kinda gal. Today, I would have put a piece of paper under the striped one to frame it so it would stand off a bit more. Still learning.
Next attempt. Fun sketches and pet papers. Not liking the double lines. Learning more about sketching with the Cameo. Still excited about learning, though. More lessons learned.
Tired of cutting out Idaho by hand, I ordered a Silhouette Cameo. Believe it or not, in the four (?) years I’ve owned it I haven’t even made another Idaho card… The first card I made was a Valentines day card for a friend. A lot of firsts: first time for vinyl, first project using the Cameo (I had been using it to cut and learn but no official projects until this one,) first time using sketch pens, first card mailed to a friend. I didn’t like how the flocking showed through the vinyl. Lesson learned.
My first cards were iris folded cards. I would hand cut the apertures with an Exact-o knife then fill them in. Then I made some Idaho cards and sold them. Here is an example.
