One Quick Halloween Card - a Silhouette Studio exercise


After having print-and-cut those shaped cards for my previous tutorial, I thought I would show you another example of what you can make with the same Lettering Delights Frank's Friends Alphabet Set .


Yesterday I showed you how to use the Try Me Now tool to download the single pumpkin image. For today's card, I downloaded "Hal", "low", "e" and "en" separately. I would have preferred to download the last three letters together but the image ended up being partially cut off so I had to split them up.


Once I have all the letters, I imported them into Silhouette Studio and resized and positioned/aligned them where I want them to be. I added a rectangle to frame the whole thing, copied it to fit two cards on one page, and proceeded to print. Since these are just A2 sized cards, I cut the printed cardstock with my paper trimmer instead of using my Cameo.


By the way, you can make these cards even if you do not have your cutter. Just use the free Silhouette Studio program to design the card and print it out with your printer. If you have just ordered your cutter and do not have it yet, this project is a great way to get to know the software while you are waiting for the delivery of your machine. You can download the program on the Silhouette website HERE.


These cards are quick and easy to make. I made quite a few of them in a very short time and my kids are going to give them out to their teachers next week. If you need a quick Halloween card, these would work great. Hope you'll try it out and make some too. :-)
