I know, I know....I am boring when it comes to the Silhouette.  I go on and on about what a wonderful cutter it is and my ramblings get a bit boring.  I am a long time owner of the Cricut....I had the original "Little Bug" and I still own 2 (TWO!) Expressions with a Gypsy and dozens of cartridges.  I love the Cricut....I love the idea behind it but I will now say it outloud....the quality of the Silhouette cutting is superior to the Cricut.  I said it.  That's my opinion and probably not worth much but there it is.
Take this card for example....this is a file designed by the great Samantha Walker. She is an amazing lady who designs all kinds of things including Spellbinder dies, stamps, papers, and files for the Silhouette and other cutters.  Her designs can be so intricate....I was sorta hesitant to buy one thinking...ok it looks great online but will it really cut?!
I did have to put a new blade in my Silhouette but this is what I ended up with...is this amazing or what?  This is the outside of the card which measures 6x6.  Check out those teensy stars and the beautiful flourish!
Look how pretty that lettering is....and that flourish...my, my, my!
And here is the inside of the card:

I hear you saying "Wow!".  I hear it all the way here in Georgia.  In case you forgot to say "wow"...here is a close up photo of the inside:
Amazing, huh?  Told you!

Happy Crafting!

  3. You are right Susan, I did say WOW!. It is such a lovely card, no wonder you love the machine. I have a Cricut, but need to use it more....Wishing you and your family a Blessed Christmas, hugs, Ursula

  4. Amazing is the right word! How long did it take you to make this card? How many files were used? I don't know enough to ask questions properly. =)
