Silhouette Sunday Celebrations
It's Silhouette Sunday and I am sharing some projects I made with my Silhouette machine and Silhouette America cutting files for celebrations. First up is a retirement card I made for my stamping sister Barb. The chair is a die cut from Silhouette and so is the Enjoy! I stamped the sand and sunset with stamps from a set by Raisin Boat. I also made this sign for Barb's celebration:
Spring is also a time for celebrating Graduations. I love to make graduation cards in the school colors of the graduate and almost always give money as their gift. Here is a graduation card I made in just a few minutes with a card cutting file from Silhouette America. I learned how to make the tassle here.
I am entering these cards in the Anything Goes challenges at Crafty Catz and Annabelle Stamps.
I have one more celebrations card to share and I have used the weekly shape for the challenge at the Silhouette blog. This doily making set by Samantha Walker was on my wish list so I purchased it with the credit I have from my monthly subscription. What a deal- I can get $25 worth of cutting files for just $8 a month (on sale.) Even "full price" of 99 cents is a huge bargain, but now I am getting my files for a third of that!! Here is the card I made for the Weekly Shape Challenge:
I kept it simple to highlight the beautiful doilies-black and white, a couple gems and flowers and a sentiment cut out with my Silhouette.
And speaking of celebrations, Happy Mother's Day to all Mothers and Grandmothers and special ladies out there!
