Christening Card

We were away this weekend at a family christening for which I had to make a card.  I didn't really have anything suitable in my crafting stash so I went to the internet for inspiration and found a laser cut card that I liked.   I partly copied the card I had seen and created my own cut file with my Silhouette Cameo.

 I wasn't sure how well the Cameo would cut some of the intricate smaller pieces but I thought it did a really good job.  I made the card 5"x7" which made it easier to cut.
 
Over the years that I have had my Cameo, I have found that some card doesn't cut as well as others but I always get really good results with Linen and Hammered card from Papermilldirect especially with intricate cuts so that is my go to card.  Links below.

I enjoyed creating this card so much that I am going to have a go at some more designs...is it too early for Christmas cards?!!!!!

  3. So pretty and extra special with it being personalized. It is never too early for Christmas cards. I make them year round. That way when Christmas season arrives I already have a stash so I only have to make a few more to have them done.
