You usually hear "break a leg" when you're wishing someone good luck on stage. Not in this case.
I used the bone frame file from the on-line Silhouette store. After bringing the bone image onto my virtual mat, I used the knife with the sawtooth edge to "break" it. I did a small 0.45 offset for the dark mat behind to give it some contast and definition.
I decided to use vellum cardstock for the bandaid so that you could see the sawtooth edge behind it.

Cameo Spotlight is a new blog challenging Silhouette Cameo owners to some fun new projects. The current challenge is to focus on summertime. My sister is a strawberry fanatic and her birthday is this month. This is the card and gift box I came up with to mail to her. The image is a strawberry card from the Silhouette on-line store. Doesn't it just say summertime? The card layers are: white base, black seed layer, and the top polka dot layer with seed holes cut out to expose the black layer below. I used black stickles in those holes for a little bit of glossy shine. Oh so pretty! Inside, I chose to use a rhinestone file and switched out the blade for a sketch pen using the Chomas Creations pen holder (love that thing!). I used a glitter pen, not sure the camera picked it up very well. The sentiment is from Papertrey Inc Sweet as Can Be stamp set.
I had a blast making this and hope you get inspired to try something like this too. Thanks for stopping by.

Hello Everyone! Today I made a card for our daughter's birthday. She loves fashion, so when I found this glittered cheetah print designer paper, I knew I had to include it on her card. I created the high heel from the Stiletto Card file from the Silhouette on-line store. I resized it to fit the card front and cut the darker brown background layer. I then created an inset layer, cut off the heel and ran my glitter paper into the Silhouette as fast as I could, because I was so excited to see how it would turn out. I ended up having to use a blade setting of 6 and a double cut. The glitter paper was pretty thick. I glued the 2 pieces together and added the bling down the heel of the shoe and clustered a few rhinestones as a focal point on the top of the shoe. I couldn't stop there, and felt a gold bow at the back of the shoe was a must :-) The sentiment is from Humor in High Heels (SU retired) and inside I computer generated a sentiment that says "Kick up your heels and enjoy your birthday".
And what's a girl to do without the proper handbag? It's just not possible to go out without one!!! I created this from some wonderful gold, textured designer paper that I found at Michaels. It feels like cloth and looks kind of like a soft leather. The silhouette cut it like a dream. I accented it with some of the glitter paper, made a tag for some purse jewelry. I even put some "feet" on the bottom of the bag. I think I could have gone on and on with decorating the bag, but I had to stop somewhere. I placed a gift card inside this little gem and called it good.
What more can I say. I had a blast making this!
