I made this card using two different image types I purchased from the Silhouette store. The first was the Ornate Card Frame (regular cut) image. The second was a Daisy (sketch) image I wanted to add to the frame portion of the card. Here is how I combined the elements:
First, I placed the card layers on my virtual mat. I used the default size as it was perfect for the 5-1/2 X 5-1/2 inch envelopes I have.
Then I chose a Daisy sketch image and sized it so it would fit inside the ornate frame. I placed it on my mat inside the frame. (sorry for the blurry picture, but I was too lazy to take another picture and you get the idea)
Next I moved all the images off the virtual mat except for the Daisy sketch.
I changed out my blade housing for my Chomas Adjustable pen holder. I set a black gel pen in the holder following the pen holder instructions and attached white cardstock to my "real" mat. I changed my setting for the Silhouette pen and pressed cut. When finished I had the sketched Daisy image on my cardstock. DO NOT UNLOAD your mat!
After creating the sketch, I moved my frame portion of the card image back to the virtual mat, placing it around the Daisy sketch and I moved the Daisy off the virtual mat.
I changed my adjustable pen holder for the blade housing, changed the settings and pressed cut. The Cameo cut the frame perfectly around the sketched Daisy.
I chose a patterned cardstock for the card base, and because my cardstock was flimsy, I opted to cut another card base out of black solid cardstock to make it a bit more stable. I cut the black base along the perforations and adhered the separate pieces to the inside of the card. I also used black cardstock for the outer shadow portion of the frame. I adhered the white frame pieces over the black frame piece, and adhered that to the card base. All in all it was very simple to put together.
I wanted to embellish this card, but honestly the design was so pretty that to add anything to it seemed to take away from it's beauty. So, I added 4 pieces of self adhesive bling to the frame and colored the inside of the Daisy with a coordinating Copic marker color. This satisfied my need to add a little something to the card without overdoing it.
Supplies I used: Cameo Die Cutting Machine, Chomas Adjustable Pen Holder, Black gel pen (I used a Gelly Roll gel pen), Black cardstock (Stampin Up), White cardstock (Bazzill), Patterned cardstock (Me and My Big Ideas), Black Bling (want 2 scrap), Copic Marker (YG03), Scotch Quick Dry Adhesive, ATG Tape
Have some fun adding sketch designs to a card base. There are a lot of card bases available in the Silhouette store, as well as sketch designs. If you have the Designer Edition of the Silhouette Software, you can turn any image into a Sketch. Give it a whirl!
I posted this one over at The Cameo Spotlight as well (I was told it was okay :). You all should check it out and play along with the Summer Theme challenge. It's so easy and fun!
Let me know what you think and have a great day!
