I recently purchased a Silhouette Cameo, supposedly so I could create a vinyl wall mural for my soon-to-be-born first grandchild's nursery. Now I've found I can't stop! I love that I can create my own designs and cut vinyl or cardstock. I recently learned the cut and print feature, so I have piles of cute cut-outs on my stamping desk. And then I decided to try pairing the Cameo with my other
obsession er, hobby, Stampin' Up. This card is the result. I stamped the flowers and leaf, then scanned them, brought them into the Sil software and traced them, then printed a whole sheet. I colored everything with Copic markers (OK, OK - so I have THREE obsessions!), and sent it through the Cameo. SO MUCH FASTER and EASIER than cutting them all out with tiny scissors. I used a file from the Sil store to cut the opening in the mat, and finished up the card with a traditionally stamped sentiment.
