Silhouette Sunday #15 – Making Valentines

 

feb15_2015b

I haven’t been posting much about my Silhouette on my blog because life seems to keep me busy but I grabbed the opportunity to play and bought some great files from SVGCuts. So I’m posting my Silhouette Sunday on Monday. Don’t hate.

I received the new Cameo for Christmas so I am anxious to cut large files. So I bought some great box cards I could use to make some Valentine’s.

feb15_2015cI think I could use this one for birthdays. My girlfriends would love this. It ‘s so cute in person. I cut out plastic to put inside the frames to make them really look like glasses.

feb15_2015dAfter I assembled all of the components then I glued it all together. A great tip I received from my friend Cathy is to turn off the cut for the dashed lines intended for folding and use the bone folder and hand-score them yourself. This way, you can insure it won’t rip from overuse.

feb15_2015eI just realized while typing this I forgot the black buckle that is suppose to go over the gray rectangle! Oops.

feb15_2015fThe back has a large place to leave a sentiment. I think I might even embellish it with some stamps.

ignite1This second card I made for Leao for Valentine’s day. It is so stinkin’ cute. I used a textured paper to make the matches and they are so cute.

ignite2It even cut out little tips for the matches to make them look real. I really like the cut files from SVGCuts.

ignite3Here is the fully assembled card. It’s so creative. I will definitely be making this one again.

ignite4On the back it had a nice size area for writing sweet sentiments. I didn’t fill it out before photographing because that is for my Valentine’s eyes only!!!

ignite5I added purls instead of the paper for the dots for more bling and used a sparkly yellow paper for the light parts of the flame for a cool affect.

He loved it and now has it on desk in his home office.

I hope you are having fun with your Silhouette. I will try to get back into posting more because my love for that machine is still strong.

Happy crafting!
