Why do I love my Silhouette Cameo?

Because it makes creating beautiful handmade cards a breeze!


Tri-Fold Bracket Card by Not Just Paper and Glue

Supplies:



Using my Silhouette Cameo, I cut the base of the card from Periwinkle card stock; the interior panel from a yellow patterned card stock; and the frame outline from a floral paper.

I cut a piece of Printable Sticker Paper just slightly smaller than the card base and covered it with Crystal glitter and adhered the colored acetate to the Sticker Paper using a liquid adhesive.

Next, I assembled the card following the card file designers instructions.

Once the card was assembled I adhered the glittered acetate to the backside of the yellow pattern window. I cut an additional piece of the patterned paper (4.25 x 5.5 inches) and then adhered it to the back of the glittered acetate to add a finished look to the card.

I also added a layered bracket panel to the inside center where I could write a personal note to the recipient.

Using my sketch pen attachment for my Silhouette Cameo I created the Thank You banner. I cut a mat for the banner from a piece of the floral paper that I used for the thin frame border. I then attached the banner to the front panel of the card.

If you own a cutting machine, take advantage of the card files that are available for download. They can cut your time in half and still produce beautiful handmade cards that you can send to your friends and relatives.
