Today I’m in the mood for some shabby style. It’s always a great style for adding texture and I just adore texture.

This card has a unique accent on it that I tried out for the first time on this card. It uses my Silhouette craft cutter and the very cool Print and Cut feature. The Silhouette is a really great machine that has so many possibilities. I just love that I don’t have to purchase cartridges and can even design my own cuts if I want to. The Print and Cut image on this card is the very sweet bird and floral accent. This design can be purchased from the Silhouette store and is a House of Three design. What’s so cool about it is that you print it out with your printer and then put it into the Silhouette. The Silhouette will “read” the register marks and then cut it out perfectly.

Very. Very. Very. Cool.

Always Here For You

Scavenging corrugated cardboard is a great way to add depth and texture to shabby style cards. Peel off some of the outer texture to reveal the inner core.
