This card is another example of the inset designs that I like to create with the Silhouette Cameo. I wrote about my method for making these cards earlier this month (HERE). The only difference is that the design in the center of the card is something I drew instead of using a shape from the Silhouette Online Store.
After I created the shape and set it into the card front, I used the outer line of the image to create and offset and subtracted that shape from a 4 x 5.25 inch rectangle to create a decorative top layer on the card. I made an offset of the oval shape to create the mat that I added to the inside of the card.
The card base is brown Core'dinations textured cardstock and the decorative papers are from this "Moonrise" collection by SEI.
The Core'dinations cardstock has a colored core but it is a bit lighter and sometimes shows on the inside of the sharp cuts. I don't like the way it looks when this happens - it detracts from the cut.
I used some Vintage Photo distress ink to ink the center of the card and cover all of the lighter brown areas. I also inked the white edges of the patterned paper cuts.
I deliberately cut the sentiment so the stripes in the paper would be at an angle - I just think it is more interesting this way! This card would work as a vertical or a horizontal card.
Thanks for the positive feedback about my potential new venture selling some of my files. Would you be interested in the more generic files like this one or just the specialty photo cutting files. I am working on setting up a "shop" and may be putting out a call for a few file testers who use machines or programs that I don't own in another week or so.
We have had some nice weather here - I hope it sticks around for the weekend!
