As you know if you visit here often, I’m rather obsessed with vinyl for making cards. I love the flexibility of it and how you can make very precise cuts - even teeny tiny … if you are don’t mind working slowly and carefully. I enjoy being able to scale the graphics to sizes that fit any project I choose.
I wanted to make my Mother in Law a card to celebrate a milestone birthday so I went looking for a perfect image. I found a lovely coloring page image at THIS site.
Coloring page images make terrific cuts if the lines are solid. This image had everything I liked. I did not provide the actual image here because I don’t know if it’s copyrighted, however you might trace it yourself. If you are new to the Silhouette Designer Edition Software you might watch the following video which will explain to you about the different types of tracing images and how you can trace.
Here is how my card turned out:
Designer Paper - Recollections
Vinyl - black
Arches Watercolor Paper - 140 lb
Watercolor Pencils & Aqua Brush
Stamp - whatever theme you wish
For the Modge Podge/Glitter step you can visit THIS previous post.
For the Vinyl shape - I simply traced the rose and transferred it to my watercolour paper.
I hope this has been helpful to you and you create some lovely cards using vinyl.
