This card has a larger curved edge than the sketch but I liked the results anyway. I am going to try something new this time and give you a tutorial, complete with pictures, to show how I made this card with my Silhouette. Some of the pics aren’t the best but this is my first time for this so extend some grace my direction, okay?
Step 1: Draw a rectangle that is 5.5″ wide by 8.5 ” high. This will give you a standard 5.5″ x 4.25″ card. I colored this rectangle gray so it would be easier to tell what is what later on.
Step 2: bring in the desired doily and resize it so that it is slightly larger than the card. I made mine 5.55 x 5.55 inches. Place it on top of the card base, lining up the bottom of the doily with the bottom of the card. I have colored the doily so you can see it easier.
Step 3: I made another rectangle by starting it on the upper left-hand of the card base and dragged it halfway down the doily, then sending it backward one step so that it is between the doily and the card base.. This rectangle and the doily will be the 2 pieces that will be welded together. This new rectangle is peach colored.
Step 4: I no longer needed the card base so I removed it.
Step 5: I highlighted both the peach rectangle and the doily and hit the “weld” button and tada- a card with a fancy border!
I used the My Mind’s Eye “Memorable” 6×6 pad, Pumice Stone Distress ink, and the Hero Arts /Sizzix Stamp and Die Cut Butterflies set. The doily is #18185. I added some Distress Stickles and yellow embroidery thread to dress it up a bit more.
Thanks for giving this a peek!
