Just a note (card)

A few weeks ago my friend, Joy sent me some stamps to play with. I sat down with them today and "just a NOTE" jumped out at me.

I had used the Alouette set for my "Drifting Kite" card earlier this year and the same birds came to my mind when I saw the stamp.

Using the Silhouette Studio Designer Edition, I imported the Alouette SVGs onto the virtual mat. I made an offset of the bird and music note together to form the base layer and the resulting card base. The microphone is a partial print-and-cut from the Grown Up Girls Graphic Set while the bottom "grass" came from a Martha Stewart border punch.

Today's project is basically a shaped card. If you have not made one before, just click HERE for a tutorial that will show you the concept of the shaped card.

  1. So cute!! Is it just as easy to make a shaped card in the SSDE as it is in MTC? I have not played with it much yet.

    1. Thanks, Gale! In my opinion, it is a little easier with MTC. "Grabbing" the offset can be tricky in SSDE especially when the offset distance is small. MTC's Layers feature makes it a lot easier to control the cut lines.

  2. Oh my cuteness!!! I LOVE this!

  3. Oh that is just too darn cute for words... LOVE it
