I am throwing my best friend a bridal shower and wanted to make her invites using my Silhouette Cameo. I love my Silhouette Cameo. For those that don't know what a Silhouette Cameo is it is a electronic cutting machine. It can cut a variety of media including paper, cardstock, vinyl, heat transfer paper and so much more. It is like the CriCut but better. The thing I like the most about the Silhouette is there is no need to buy expensive cartriges. The Silhouette has an online store where you can buy designs for 99 cents. I have only bought designs I want and need for my projects. The online store also features a free design each week.
I went to craft store looking for white envelopes for my cards. I ended up with something better. I found white envelopes with pre fold 5x7 cards. (unfolded 10x7) I then went on my computer and found a cute wedding card design. I found a cute flower wedding dress. I edited it to fit my 5x7 cards. I then put my white 5x7 card on my mat and loaded it into my silhouette. The silhouette did the rest. After it was all cut out I folded the card. I then glued a colored 4.5x6.5 inch cardstock to the inside of the card. I then typed up the wording for the invite in microsoft word and formatted it to be a bit smalled than the colored 4.5x6.5 cardstock. I cut out the wording and glued it onto colored cardstock. Super easy and cute homemade invite.
The best thing about purchasing designs on the Silhouette is the image is yours. I can now use it on other projects. This design could be also used to make a homemade wedding card.
