My SIL will be turning 50 this month and I wanted to get a card made for her. I've known her since she was 15 and I began dating her brother...she was a maid of honor in our wedding 33 years ago. While it was tempting to make one of those real 'Oh my your over the hill' cards, I decided to use Art Impressions oh so cheerful bird, cough, cough......but more importantly I wanted to make a step card.
While I have patterns for step cards I decided to use my Silhouette to make this one. Oh my, how easy peasy. I had purchased the cut file for this step card and decided to re-size it to a 5.5 x 5.5 card. The file also contains the cuts for the side pieces as well as a circle and scallop. It was oh so easy to re-size the layered pieces right on my machine. Layers on my step cards have always been a challenge to me, it may be easier for others, but certainly not for me. This machine made them a piece of cake - ALL proportioned the way they should be. I did fussy cut my image after I colored him with my Copics - I hadn't at that point decided exactly how this card was going to be put together when I inked him up.
Can I just say life is good!! My file is now saved and when I decide to make another step card I just have to click, open, cut, and assemble. Time to get this card ready for the mail.
