So if you have read my posts from my "faux-magine" days, you may recall that I'm not really a print-and-cut kind of gal. PNC is quick and easy but personally I really prefer cutting out on different sheets of colored and textured cardstock. Still, when I saw Sheri Berry's Costume Clubhouse Collection, I just had to give PNC another try.
Yesterday I showed you how to use LD's Print-and-Cut files with both Make-the-Cut and the Silhouette Studio programs. When I first started on today's card, I actually tried making it with Make-the-Cut first.
Whenever I make a card, I try to lay out all the elements in MTC before cutting the layers out with my Silhouette SD. This time was no different. However, using these textures with MTC seems to slow my computer down so I thought I'd try with the Silhouette Studio instead.
This is how the layout looked like in Silhouette Studio:
The two layouts look slightly different from each other and even from the final card because I changed my mind about how it should look. I decided to go with a black background eventually but I kept a bit of the orange that I printed from the Costume Clubhouse Paper Pack. I also added a couple of ghosts.
I used my Canon PIXMA MP495 Wireless Inkjet printer to print on some Georgia Pacific White cardstock that I bought from Walmart. The cardstock is not very heavy weight but it is very economical (less than $6 for 150 sheets).
To add some depth to the card, I used foam tape to adhere the layers. I also applied Stickles (glitter glue) to the costumed kid and the ghosts.
Putting this card together was really quick because I didn't have to spend time to paper-piece the individual elements. I almost felt like I finished this card too quickly. Who knows, I just may have to PNC another project out. Just maybe.
