Well we had a very busy but lovely christmas with all our children their partners and friends it is such a special time that i  even put away my silhouette for a couple of days!! but back to it lol...
today i have been making new years cards to send out tomorrow...
i used the file from silhouette store rounded lattice card i cut it in a purple colour (it looks brown here but it is purple!) and i used a blue mirror card to go behind the lattice work, as i wanted it to be a little glitzy for new year....


as you can see the file cut beautifully. I was using a card weight of 250 gms so i cut on speed 3 with the pressure of 33 and it cut on a single cut and was very easy to weed...next i cut the backing card on the same speed and weight and although that was mirror card it too cut on one cut....

i used double sided tape to stick it down as it needed something strong to hold it in place...

i measured the apiture in the front of the card and drew a simple oval to fit and then to get a layer for it i went to the offset area of the software in ss and did an internal offset for my layer

i stuck these using tape again but instead of removing all the tape i tend to part peel leaving most on and enough hanging so you can easily pull the backing off this way it is easy to remove the layer until you are happy with its position on your card then peel the remaining waste away..

this method has saved me quite a few redos...nothing worse than sticking your layers skew wiff lol..
the only thing left to do was add some text..i used arial black in ss and welded individual words together and cut them in the mirror card...

and there it is...so thats what ive been up to today..enjoy yourself love debby xx
