Have a Snappy Birthday! {Silhouette Studio tutorial}

I recently showed you how to use Silhouette Studio's Weld and Offset features to make interesting shaped cards. If you had missed it, click HERE to see that tutorial. If you had seen my post, did you give the technique a try? If not, shall we practice today and make a quick card? It's super easy, I promise! *wink*

In my latest article that I wrote for the Craftsy blog, I used the same method to make a shaped birthday card in 8 easy steps.

I am using version 2.8.16d of the Silhouette Studio Designer Edition program. In order to follow this tutorial, you will need the DESIGNER EDITION because the free program that came with your Silhouette machine cannot open SVG files.

To see my step-by-step tutorial and practice making a shaped card, just click HERE.

Files used:
Birthday Fishies cut its (svg)
LD Cinch font ("SNAPPY")
LD Hipster Child font
Winter Wear paper pack (blue chevron)
Something Fishy paper pack (yellow dots)


  1. So cute! You always amaze me with the layers and details you put into your projects. =)

  2. Seriously what kind of printer and paper do you use? Your printed cards always look so crisp and the paper texture looks awesome. I need some insight on printers and paper.. i am really looking for a printer i can print cards with as well as a good 12x12 printer (i dont care if its 2 different printers) please help me :)

  3. just caught the answers in your F.A.Q's hope nothing has changed :)

  4. Oh wow i lovvvvve this card! Super snappy!
