Camera Card

Hello Everyone!  I've really been enjoying creating shaped cards with my Silhouette Cameo!  This is a camera card I made for my son-in-law who is a camera buff.  I purchased the camera image file from the Silhouette store.  I began by using the original file and resized it to 5.25 x 4.0 inches and cut it out in black card stock.  Then, I created a 1/4 inch border around the image, removed all the other cut out pieces, copied a duplicate, flipped it so that it was a mirror image of the original, then merged them together on the left side and welded the shapes to form the white card base. 

For the inside of the card, I created a blackout layer, then created a rounded rectangle and typed in the sentiment.  I printed the sentiment with the registration marks added, and placed the rectangle around the sentiment.  When I was happy with the placement, I inserted the cardstock into my Silhouette and edge cut the rectangle.  This was so much fun! Thanks for stopping by today!
