Thank you card for my neighbor

 
Quick and easy thank you card for my neighbor.  I used cut file #63041 (Field of flowers butterfly card) from the Silhouette store and cut out all pieces with my Cameo.   Black card base is 5 1/2" square.  White and red layers were cut at 5".
(Please note: I changed the original cut file design and only used the white layer panel. I added the 5" red and 5 1/2" X 11" black card base layers.)

Halloween Easel Card

 
This card is for my neighbor's grandson.  It's a easel style card that combines a free spider web cut file from Bird, a Halloween saying from the Silhouette store and spiders I had in my stash.   I took Bird's basic spider web design and added it to a rectangle easel card base.  Attached the sentiment on Scrapbook Adhesive dimensional dots, then added ribbon and a spider.  Finished off with some tiny 4mm googly eyes.  (Thanks Cely for finding them for me.)

Penny Black Halloween


Yep, it's that time of year again.  Some of my neighbors bring their grandkids over for Halloween for trick or treat so I have several Halloween cards to make.  This one is for my neighbors little granddaughter.  I pulled out some fun Penny Black Halloween clear stamps and combined them with a die called Tri Square from Simon Says Stamp.  I die cut the white square images, then stamped and colored them with Copics. Die cut the squares on the purple layer then inserted the white die cuts.   The pumpkin and frankie are from the PB Trick or Treat set, and the saying is from PB Spooky set.  I also used a corner rounder punch, white gel pen for faux stitching, spider web ribbon, Prima flowers and a black gem stone.  I find it a bit of a challenge to work with small images like these, but I think she will smile when she sees this card.

Butterfly Gatefold Card


This is what my Studio software screen shows as cut size.

Cut out this pretty butterfly gatefold card using a cut file I recently bought at the Silhouette store.  I love how it looks, but I ran into a problem with the sizing.  It shows on my Silhouette Studio software screen that the pink card base is sized to 10" X 5" with the opening in the middle.  The top white panels are sized to 2.5" X 5".  The pink card base cut out at the correct size of 10" X 5", but the white layers cut at 2.5" and approx. 4.9".  I double checked the screen and it clearly shows to cut the white panel at 2.5" X 5".  (See above) I had to cut off the extra bit of pink cardstock with my paper cutter into order for the panels to fit the cardbase.  Other than manually cutting it, I am not sure how to fix this problem as my Cameo has never cut a different size than what it shows on my screen.  I wonder if there's a bug in the last Studio software update.   If anyone knows how to fix this, please post a comment here and let me know...

Butterfly lattice card


I've been feeling a bit under the weather for the last week with a cold bug.  Haven't had the energy to do any crafting until now.  This card was cut out with my Silhouette Cameo using a new studio cutting file I bought at the Silhouette store.  Other supplies that I used are Bazzill blue and GP white cardstock, pearls and twine.  Changed the design so the blue layer is sized at 4.75" and cut out two butterflies.  Mounted the butterflies at a angle then folded the wings up on the top layer to give it a little more dimension.
