Have a Fabulous Birthday!


It's Thursday! Just one more day until the long weekend! On Saturday, we'll be heading to Guelph to cheer on my husband as he competes in his last triathlon on the season. We're hoping for good weather - and for Sunday and Monday too! We plan to make use of some of our local walking trails and to hang out by the pool before the busyness of the school season begins.


My daughter celebrated her birthday on Monday and this is one of the cards I made for her. We had a busy summer so I did not always have access to my craft room - but was able to spend time with my laptop. As a result, I created a number of digital cards. This card is a combination card!

I began with the "Shopping Chica" (#16675) image from the Silhouette store. Using the Silhouette software, I "built" her and added colour. I even used some Miss Kates Cuttables flourishes to dress up the shopping bags. Once the image was together, I used the offset feature to create the white shadow. I then layered all the images on a photo I found online.

I used a similar process for the sentiment doily. Knowing that I wanted to use Stampin' Up's Cherry Cobbler ink for my sentiment, I did a colour match (RBG) for the doily and shopping bags too!

Once everything was ready, I printed off the card. I also printed off the bags separately in order to cut them out (with my Silhouette!) and affix them for a bit of dimension. I then stamped a sentiment with My Craft Spot's Birthday Wishes stamp set.

Thanks for visiting! Enjoy the long weekend!

Great card Kate! I also love combining my Silhouette with the 'usual' craft stuff and discover more possibilities all the time.

I have yet to spend time learning how to use my Silhouette Portrait. You seem to have made the best of yours and this card shows it.
