Spot On

Today I made a fun card using my Silhouette machine.  I've had that wonderful machine since they first came out here in the U.S.  I can't remember what year it was, but I can probably look back at my girls' scrapbooks to see when the titles stopped looking hand cut.  That little machine was one of the best craft purchases I ever made!   

A fairly simple card.  The sentiment on the background was computer generated.  I cut the circles and letters with my Silhouette.  The circles with the words are raised with foam and the other dots went through the Xyron before I placed them on the white background.  The background was then raised with foam and adhered to the card base.  All of the papers were scraps from my stash.


This card is entered in CAS-ual Fridays CFC56

Thanks so much for visiting, I hope you have a great day!
