Birthday card

Hi there!

When I saw the lovely new dies released at Simon Says stamp, it reminded me of a cutting file I had in my Silhouette library. I challenged myself to see if I can create something similar in the Silhouette studio.:)

The flower is called Fancy Flower by Tanya Batrak ( Design ID #147866 )

 I created a frame for the flower in the Silhouette studio, and 'welded' the flower and frame together to make this card:









I used distress inks to create the smooshed watercolor background and added a label sentiment I also designed in the studio, using the font : Impact label.

It's been quite a while since I last shared a sentiment... so here it is :) You are welcome to use it on your projects! (right click & save to your device)

I love this card; hope you don't mind if I try to re-create it using a Cricut cut. Also thanks for the sentiment!

Goodness, the flower and frame are exquisite, but the background -- wow! The colors! Thanks so much for sharing the sentiment, too. I might just print up a bunch and cut them out. You are a kind soul.

This is just an awesome card, Hannelie! I love the framed flower and pretty background. I have several flowers in my Silhouette library, so I really need to give this a try. Thanks so much for the inspiration.

Gorgeous and colorful ink smooshed background, Hannelie! The white bold flower outline is as impactful as the background. And I love the label sentiment you designed! Hideko xx

This looks fantastic and makes me want to break down and get a silhouette! But where would I find the time to learn how to use it...??? Anyway, I love how this came out with the colorful background!

Who needs die when you can do such beautiful work with the Silhouette. Loving the smooshed background, Hannelie,

Absolutely gorgeous Hannelie!! Great job creating this silhouette die-cut. I have not turned on my Silhouette for months ... and have never learned how to "weld". I'm so impressed! And the die-cut looks AMAZING over the colourful background. Stunning card! xx
