Silhouette Sunday

Hello Everyone!  Welcome to new series on my blog.  I call it Silhouette Sunday.  Nope, I'm not on their design team (although I applied... crossing fingers and toes), I don't sell their products - I just love my Portrait and hope to have a Cameo in craft corner soon and I love playing with it.  So I decided that I needed to have a weekly or bi-weekly blog post showcasing these projects.

I'm kicking this series off with a wedding card and a baby card.  First the wedding card.  This was actually inspired by a You Tube video series I stumbled on during one of my nightly You Tube video viewings.  Yes, I actually watch You Tub videos every night.  I curl up in bed with my Kindle and watch something inspiring.  Whether it's Mary from SVG Cuts putting together one of their newest kits  (generally ones I can't make because they never make much for the Portrait size) or Dawn Griffith or Angie Juda, the only Stampin' Up! commercialists I'll watch.... that is until I found Connie Stewart and her Flash Cards 1.0 and 2.0 series.  Great concept!  Here's the card that inspired mine ---> here.

Following her method, I created the cake.  I cut out a really cute svg border that provided the scalloped decoration on the cake.  Flowers I created from an old punch and then added the banner that I also cut from an svg.

And here's the baby card that is {almost} entirely made using the Silhouette, bear and card base found in the online store.

The doily behind the bear is a die cut from MFT Stamps.

I am very pleased with how my cards turned out and they were VERY WELL received by the recipients.  Couldn't ask for more than that!  Well, happy Sunday.  Thanks for stopping by.
