I created this card for the Caardvarks Shape Up Challenge HERE. The challenge is to create any card that is not a square or rectangle. I got together with my friend, Katie, on Friday and had a chance to play with her Silhouette (see her blog HERE). It was so much fun! I learned to weld and re-size. I created this tree card by welding the top of the tree image to create a card I could fold and then resizing the tree top to create the hounds tooth layer. I inked and added buttons...and voila. The finished size is approximately 4.25 x 5.5 inches.
I am still resisting the gloriousness that is the Quickutz Silhouette, all I have to do is remember that I can go to Katie's or Marisa's and play! Restraint---I swear (we will see how long that lasts).
