I love the versatility with this machine. I was able to design a card, print a nice sentiment, and cut a design on the front.
I started with a simple “I Love You” in Fiolex Girls font. I created a rectangle 8.5″ by 5.5″ and placed the text on the rright half. On the left, I added a trail of small hearts.
Print and cut is pretty straight forward. I set up my card then made sure to uncheck the “print lines of selected shapes” in the line style menu for all of my cut lines and kept it checked for my words. I also turned on my registration marks before printing my card. These marks are what make the card cut properly after its printed.
Once printed I fed the card on my mat into my Silhouette. Before printing, I checked to make sure all the appropriate cut lines were turned on then cut my card.
To assemble the card I used a couple foam adhesive squares to attach a piece of red cardstock to the back of the cut out hearts.
And that is my simple Valentine card. I love how this turned out, I am going to have to use this technique for other occasions.
