It took me a while to get here...
It's no secret that I love Nancy Kubo's designs. From the first card that I made with her Create-A-Critter cartridge to making Pandee stories, I just can't get enough of her files. Nancy's designs are not only crazy adorable, the bold lines mean that they are easy to layer.
Using Nancy's latest release on the Lettering Delights website, I imported the turtle from the Nancy's Party Cut It set into the Silhouette Studio Designer Ed.
After arranging all the elements, I made a shaped card using the OFFSET and WELD tools, using the same method that I have demonstrated in my cupcake topper tutorial.
I used the fonts LD Mon Cherie and LD Cinch for the greeting and print-and-cut everything except the turtle.
To cut out the turtle, all I did was UNGROUP the svg and SET THE CUT STYLE to CUT. Next, I arranged the different layers on the virtual mat like this:
By placing the different colored papers on the Silhouette Cameo mat as I have arranged in the virtual mat, I managed to cut out all the layers in one pass. No loading and unloading the mat multiple times! Yes!
I adhered all the cutouts with glue and foam tape for added dimension. Some Stickles glitter glue add a touch of sparkle to the card.
Nancy Kubo's svgs makes card-making such a quick task that there really isn't any excuse for a late birthday greeting. Well, except for a procrastinator like me. :-P
