50th Birthday Card Using the silhouette sd
This card has taken quite a while to do, I have added bits over a whole week. First I have used a white 8 x 8 card blank as a base. The silhoutte has now available patterned papers to download, and the patterned paper I have used was a free download. Using the silhouette software I drew a 8 x 8 in sqaure and used the fill feature to load the paper, then used the print and cut feature to creat my backing paper.
I distressed round the backing paper and mounted it on the card base. Then still using the silhouette software and using the square as a guide I cut out a 5 and 0 using the outline feature to cut the two sizes and then embossed the top layer with a embossing folder and then used distress ink around the edges.
The little bear was printed from the forever friends cd and I cut her out and decoupaged the shawl along. The bunting was cut from some backing paper and stuck on with 3d pads
To break up the backing paper I used another paper that I had in my stash and used a border punch to make it look like it was from a note book and stamped some lines and distressed the edges.
