I love my Silhouette. I love my Cricut Expression but find myself using my Silhouette more and more and my Cricut less and less. I need to get back to using that Expression...lots of beautiful shapes out there just waiting to be cut!
But for today's card I did use my Silhouette. I liked the idea of using the negative image to do my design and chose this one from the Silhouette Store created by SEI. I also corner rounded the outside with my Silhouette. So easy....
This card is for a wonderful family friend who is getting married soon.
It cut so prettily!
I added some red ribbon from Papertrey Ink and some pearls from Recollections. The paper is Basic Grey's Little Black Dress papers. The little tag and the Wedding Wishes sentiment is also Paper Trey Ink (Little Tags) and was heat embossed using some Versamark andwhite Zing embossing powder. One thing I've learned with the better quality clear stamps (like Papertrey Ink) is that you barely have to touch the stamp to the paper....you don't have to mash hard! (We say "mash" in Georgia and probably other southern states, too ....not "press"....as in "mash that button"....not "press the button"....but I digress....)
Very quick, very elegant, and very simple.
