Personalised Easter Card

Hi! Bev here with a tutorial on how to make a beautiful personalised Easter card using some watercolour artwork that can be found in the Silhouette Design Store. I have made this for some wonderful friends of ours, and I just know they will love it.

What you will need:
  • Silhouette Cameo® or Silhouette Portrait®
  • Printer
  • Cardstock
 Step One

Open a fresh page in your Silhouette studio and set the page up with the registration marks, print border and cut border which can be found in the design page settings button. I wanted to create a 6x4 card so in order to create a motif that was in proportion, I used the box tool to create a 6x4 square to design in.

Next, import your design from your library and resize it to fit into the box you have created.

Using the text box, write out the names of the recipients and decide on complimentary colours.  This design has so many beautiful colours to pick from.

Switch the page layout from vertical to horizontal and draw a larger box that will make the cut for the actual card.  6 inches in height and 8 inches in width.

Choose the cardstock default in the cut settings and ensure that only the outside box is set to cut.
Send the design to the printer and load on to your Silhouette mat for cutting.

Step Two

Once cut, fold over the card and your project is complete! Choose an envelope and send out with Happy Easter wishes!

I have really enjoyed sharing with you and can't wait to see what you create this Easter!
