Queen Bee Notecards


I seem to always be needing notecards around here. Luckily, making printed cards is super easy when you have a beautiful set of graphics and a fun, easy-to-use software.

I love Silhouette Studio before the folks over at Silhouette America upgraded it to version 3. I am still using v2.8.16d simply because I find it more fun to use than anything v3.

Making these Queen Bee notecards took no more than 15 minutes. I designed the cards in Silhouette Studio, and printed them. The cards were trimmed down to size with my manual paper trimmer. For a more finished look, I rounded the corners with my Corner Chomper.

Here's a screenshot of my virtual mat... (please see updated screenshot at the end of this post)


...and here are the finished cards. I think they look pretty good for a 15-minute project. ;)

UPDATE:

Unless your printer is set to borderless printing, you may find a white print border above the honeycomb design on one of the cards. To fix that, just flip the card over so that the two cards are diagonally across from each other.

  1. The note cards are bee-u-tiful. I wish I hadn't upgraded my Cameo, but it is done and I have to work with it as it is.
