Jin's Sweet Cherry Pie photocards

I loved the sheep photocards that I made back in February, and I've always intended to make more with the other photos that I've taken, but it seems like I never have the time for it. If you follow my blog, you may notice that I move on to a new project very quickly. There are so many fun images in every LD set and I want to use as many of them as possible. In fact, I once told LD that I wish I could cut out every single one of their SVGs but alas! life gets in the way and there never seem to be enough time in a day to make more than a card, much less cut out every image in an LD set.

LD released their Great Gift Giving bundle the other day and I love love LOVE everything in it. I was especially excited to see that they included several Cut Its that I have been waiting for, like the Bowl Full of Cherries.

I cut out the cherry pie at the first opportunity that I got, and even though I have mixed feelings that the cherry is a totally separate cut from the pie (the base layer excludes the cherry so that the stem is just a thin layer and it can rip easily), I liked the whole assembled piece a lot. I even applied Glossy Accents to the cherry to give it more dimension and some shine.

I took several pictures of the pie and posted one on my Facebook page. And then it hit me. I could use that picture to make photocards!

Using Silhouette Studio (Designer Edition), I imported the photo and used it to fill a rounded-corner rectangle. I also used a pattern from the co-ordinating paper pack to frame it. I thought it turned out adorable!

I really need to go through my stash of photos and make photocards out of them. In fact, I may even use Silhouette Studio to make family photocards. The more I play with Silhouette Studio, the more I discover that I can make so much more than the typical card with the program. I still have a lot to learn and yet they keep updating the software and adding more features! Can't wait to see what else I can make with it. :-)
