Life is Beautiful


I've been playing with my stamps and markers so much lately, I thought my Cameo might have gone into deep hibernation. We are 8 days away from the first day of Summer and it is still wet and cold here in Seattle. Alexa says that rain and fog is in today's forecast and temperatures will only reach a high of 60 degrees. Seriously?!

Anyway, I was looking at LD's latest release and I was so excited with their Get Your Float On, I just had to wake my Cameo up. It's been a while since I made a shaped card and that toucan cut file was simply perfect for one.


Using Silhouette Studio (DE), and the method that I illustrated in one of my earlier video tutorials, I made the (shaped) card base. I cut out and assembled the layers for the bird, and printed out the sentiment. The card didn't take long to make although I did spend most of the time trying to find the right cardstock for it.


I'm quite happy with how the card turned out. Frankly, it's hard not to like shaped cards. Every shaped card is different and it's a refreshing change from the same old square or rectangle cards. If you have not made one with your electronic cutter before, I hope you'll give it a try. If you need help, just check out this video tutorial.


That's all for now. I'll talk to y'all later!

  1. I love the colors so it was worth it that you spent time to pick them out. It is in the 90s here in the Midwest. Whew! Your cards always hit the spot for me.
