Whimsical Die-Cut Festive Cards

Card making Papercraft Papercrafter Projects

The Silhouette Cameo is a great all-round digital die-cutting machine. You’ll find a selection of free images already in the library but if you want more, simply head to the store and purchase extra. From the design page, you can ungroup the image into separate parts and resize as you wish. Once you’re happy, place the material onto the cutting mat, send it to the machine and select the right settings for the material used. Load the mat and send it to cut, then the machine will do the rest. Dear Santa, a Silhouette Cameo, please – and for anyone looking to put it on their Christmas list themselves, Graphtec have you covered.
