Cards | Happy Birthday

card-annex-040913 birthday

Think your electronic die cut machine is only for cutting? Designer Susie Moore is here today to show you what else you can do with it!

Sketching with pens is an oft-overlooked feature of many die cut machines. Susie used pens from Cri-Kut with her Silhouette machine to make all the embellishment designs on this card! The sentiment and stitching were done with a glitter pen for a little extra “pop” in those elements.

The only actual 3D elements on the card are the gems that Susie added inside the flowers and then off to the side a bit. The shine and dimension are just the right touch!
