Susie used a digital die cut from the Silhouette Online Store called “Thank You Card” by Lori Whitlock. Paired with a patterned paper from Echo Park’s “For the Record 2″ collection, also designed by Lori, the die makes quite a statement!
The “Thank You Card” die cut is for the whole card, front and back, but Susie only used the front panel for making this card. This card was so simple and affordable to make that Susie actually made a large quantity of them out of her paper scraps and used them as her Christmas thank you’s this year. She used an assembly line system, first cutting all of them out, and then assembling them while she watched a movie.
Lori’s designs are one of the reasons that I’m thrilled to have acquired a Silhouette machine. There’s enough of her stuff on my newly created wishlist to keep me creating for a long time! Lori, it seems, is everywhere these days, and deservedly so….she’s far and away one of the best product designers working in the industry today, creating products that are eminently usable, as Susie demonstrates.
