Beautiful Rose Vinyl Card

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.

 

Great video which explains which images trace better than others and how to do this!

Here is how my card turned out:

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.

  2. Great card. Love the frosty glitter look. Thanks also for the video. I have a Silhouette, but haven't actually used it a lot. Maybe I should giveit another try. The Studio software does seem like a useful addition.
