Swoon !

Hi there!

Love ...we have to celebrate it... not only in February but every single day!

This sweet couple definitely only have eyes for each other and seemed very appropriate for the cue at Casology this week!

I made 2 cards using the same elements with subtle design differences.

Number 1:

Number 2:

Every time I take pictures of a foiled card, I tell myself to not foil again because by now you know it's so difficult to photograph... and here I am again ... with 2 cards! Seems like I never learn 😆

I used :
  • Sweet-love-couples ~ Cutting file from Apex Cuttables.
  • Heart sentiment/background ~ Design ID #172105 in the Silhouette store.
  • Red foil from Decofoil.
  • Silhouette cameo.
  • Laminator.
I am also swooning about the way the Silhouette were able to cut those balloon strings!

If you saw this on Instagram just scroll down, but for the rest of you I include it here as well


This specific paper works 100 % every time... I wish I could find some in all the colors of the rainbow!

Both cards are just so great, but I think I love the second one a smidgen more than the other. The word heart behind the couple is just awesome, especially since it is also foiled!

Oh what fabulous cards. All the elements, the silhouettes and the foil lettering in the background look stunning. Amazing CAS design for the cue word swoon. Thank you for playing along with us at CASology this week.

Oh my gosh, I love these cards! The foil background is so awesome but I think even that is enhanced with the black silhouettes. Thanks for joining us at CASology!

Your cards are so very adorable with the sweet and delicate silhouettes! The foil might be a pain to photograph, but you did a beautiful job of it as I can see it quite clearly. I feel the same about mirrored card stock or gold embossing. It doesn't look good at all if you don't catch it just right in the photograph.

The swoon should be over how wonderfully your Silhouette cut those images, Hannelie. sigh

Both cards are so cool and lovely, Hannelie! I'm amazed by the delicate silhouettes - look at the balloon strings!! The foil is difficult to take a photo but it's really worth using it, especially for the backgrounds for these sweet couples! Hideko xx
