Hello, again, everyone! Today is the very first Cameo Creations Challenge over at Monica's Creative Madness. Every other Thursday, she'll be hosting a challenge for all of you talented Silhouette crafters. I know a lot of you guys may have gotten a Cameo for Christmas or have one on its way to you. Plus, tons of you have other Silhouette machines. I hope you'll stop by to get some Silhouette inspiration and join in on the fun.
Okay...now onto the challenge. This week's challenge is to use your Silhouette machine (any model) to make a twisted easel Valentine's Day card using the colors turquoise, red, and pink. Here's what I came up with:
Isn't this little cow adorable? I just love her! I got the cow from the Lettering Delights Sweet Nothings Gift Card Holder SVG Set, and her little pucker came from the Lettering Delights Lip Smackers SVG Set. I got the hearts from the 9 Hearts set in the Silhouette Online Store, and the flowers came from the 3 Flowers set in the store.
Those sweet sMOOches and XOXOXO sentiments came from Pink By Design's Country Living Stamp Set. I got the shape they're stamped on from the 5 Shape Set in the Silhouette Store.
To create the background (grass), I punched strips of green paper with my Martha Stewart Grass punch, then I adhered them in an alternating color pattern. I embossed my cow with my Cuttlebug Seeing Spots embossing folder, and added some black brads for her eyes. Then, I layered all of the flowers using various colored brads, added some doodles and foam tape, and my twisted easel card was all done! I hope you like it! Here's a side view:
