While I was creating the first card with the house and tree I posted yesterday, I was going through my files on the "new cloud" that Silhouette has created. Let me say, I am not a fan of the new update. I like my downloads sorted into the files I created, but with the cloud I have to search all 1200 files for the one I want. (time waster) I am contemplating removing the new update and going back to the older version. Haven't had time to do it yet. I am trying to give the new update awhile to see how it works before I make up my mind.
I am also thinking about buying the Cameo 3 with the self adjusting cutting blade- now that would be amazing because I tend to forget to change mine to fit what I am doing and then complain to myself when the cut isn't just right- you know: operator error stuff, lol!
Anyhow I chose this adorable Santa Card and we made only 6 for specific people. I HIGHLY recommend the file from the Silhouette store, cute fun and EASY! The hardest part was waiting for all the pieces to be cut so we could assemble them! lol
In this first photo I just have to laugh because he looks like a ninja!!! I had to lay a few layers together while others cut to give hubby an idea of how we would assemble the card. He's an engineer and I find showing is easier than explaining! But bless him for always being willing to work with me on my projects! It's nice to have him working from home now with his own business.
I love having an elf helping with the projects! lol
Like I said- TO STINKIN CUTE!!!
All cardstocks are Stampin Up (of course) and I used our gold glitter paper for his buckle. The White is a retired pre embossed cardstock that I cant remember the name of (sorry) and it cut just fine on the coverstock option on the Silhouette. I cut ALL SU cardstock on the coverstock option so it cuts clear through as it is thicker than the stuff you buy anywhere else and another reason I prefer SU cardstocks!
It looks like his hat brim is a bit off, but it happens with 54 year old eyes! I plan to use just the Santa for scrapbook pages and the fun thing with Silhouette is that I can adjust it and make him larger or smaller to fit my project!
His hat brim and moustache are popped up using Stampin Up dimensionals. The rest of him is put together using our Multipurpose glue because I am waiting for an order from SU with adhesives in it, (Ii prefer the snail adhesive) never get so busy you forget to check your supply of adhesives and run out! ON his buckle because it is so tiny I used the Fine Tip Glue Pen, if you don't have one for fine gluing you really, really need to order one- get it here.
Hope your creating is bringing you as much fun as it is me this week!
