Jin's INCREDIBLE double-sided, print-and-cut, tri-fold card


I have something fun to share with you today. Something printed. On both sides. Is a tri-fold card and created using the Silhouette Studio and my Cameo.

Hubby thinks it's incredible. :-)

Here's the front of the card..


..and this is the first fold.


When you open the right flap, you will see the inside...

Ta-da!


It's pretty cool, if I do say so myself. :D

Here's the back of the card:


and these are the screenshots of my virtual mat:

 

Making this card involved a lot of "flipping images around" but the most noteworthy thing is the double-sided printing.


I am using Silhouette Studio Designer Edition (v 2.7.4d) and I noticed that the Align tool includes a Center to Page feature. By centering both the card front and the back, I managed to get the print on both sides of the paper in the correct position to make the tri-fold card.
 

It took a while to figure out where all the elements should be positioned but I had a TON of fun making this card. Hope that you enjoyed it too. :-)

  13. Since you are using so much printer ink, what kind of paper do you use? I find when I use a lot of printer ink (say, when printing the background or images), regular card stock tends to curl, due to the dampness of the ink.

  14. Love this card, Jin! Super idea to use the LD princesses with the backs. Too, too, cute! Great minds think alike. I recently posted a video on 2-sided printing. http://cleversomeday.wordpress.com/2013/01/18/2pnc/
