Teenage Drama!



My friend asked me to make a birthday card for her niece who is turning 18. I figured something with high drama and sparkle would be good. I cut '18' and then simply used the offset function on my Silhouette to create the neon pink borders (it's so cool - you can choose how thick you want the borders to be and it cuts it perfectly!) I then glued the black onto the pink onto the black card base and covered the exposed pink in Glam Pink stickles. I used a matching pink panel inside the card, stamped with Happy Birthday.

Love the design! Think it is not so easy to work out all the ways you can use such a machine, but the results are perfect! Inky greetings, Gerrina

WOW - she is going to love this! And I'm lovin' my visit because I had no idea this could be accomplished on the Silhouette....however, I am only at page 34 in the manual. Some exciting "learning" ahead! Fabulous pink stickles!
