Now... let's head on to my project for all of you today. I want to apologize for my simple card. I planned on having a fab project to share with everyone, but - life kinda took over, as I had oral surgery a week ago Friday. I only expect to go in to get the tooth pulled and ended up walking out with stitches in my mouth. I thought I was good to go on Monday, but that night the pain was not playing with me! I was down for the entire week, so needless to say - I was only able to get this card done. I wanted to do a few different projects to share with you all - my apologies! I'll be sharing more of my creations using my Cameo, so be sure to check back often. Ok.. ok... enough rambling, right? So here is my card! 

Hope your day is "Tweet" 

Recipe: 
Silhouette Store - Scalloped squared 
Scraptastical Kreations SVG cutting file 
white gel pen 
black pen 
border punch 

For the scalloped square - in the studio software I highlight the entire piece - right click > ungroup - then right click again and release compound path. This is going to break the pieces a part individually. That is how I got the layered square, which I pop dotted to give dimension. Just a little tip for the beginners (like me). 

I hope you all enjoy this hop as much as we've enjoyed putting it together and creating projects to share with you. 

Now, go ahead and hop on over to  Jessica 's blog and see what she has to share with all of you!

  5. Even though it's a simple card, I love it!
    It seems like a simple card, when you're in need of a fast but home made card.

    I'm going to go to the others in the blog hop.
