DIY Scratch Off Cards

Hope you all had a great weekend.  We have had my sister and her husband staying with us this weekend.  We went to a May Ball on Saturday night which which is an annual event and we help with the organisation of it all. 
Each year we raffle off the table flower decorations to one lady on each of the tables and I thought I would make some scratch off cards to make it more fun.
DIY Scratch Off Cards using Silhouette Cameo
I used a graphic drawn by a great artist on Etsy called Swiejko and traced around it in my Cameo adding some text on each one to say whether they had won or lost!
I then used some Scratch Off Sticker Sheets from Silhouette and copied the shape of the jar to make a cut file that would go over the win or lose text on the jar - making absolutely sure that I had a separate pile for the winners and losers otherwise there could be more than one winner on each table.

Silhouette Cameo used to make scratch off cards
I also recently purchased some Heidi Swapp Reactive Screen Ink after watching a video where she used one of her art screens to add some gold foil to an envelope.  I thought it would be a good idea to decorate the envelopes that the scratch off cards were in.

I don't have a Minc foiling machine but found it worked really well with an ordinary laminator.  Then I decided that it was going to take a while to do 12 envelopes and I didn't have the time so I only did one in the end but it came out really well and looks very pretty.

 I used some Silhouette Printable gold foil to cut out the number 7 but I am definitely going to use the screen ink again.
