Get In Shape

Can I just say, how freaking awesome is my Cameo? :D
 
I must admit, I haven't used it a huge amount since my lovely hubby bought it for me in November - I am still getting the hang of how to do various things with it (and I must admit to not spending as much time in the craft room as usual over the winter months! :lol:).
 
But it really is the coolest, cleverest darn thing and I really must use it more. Cos look what I did with it over the weekend:
 
 
I made my own shaped card base!! How awesome is that?! :D
 
The challenge at Passion for Promarkers this week is to make a circle card and I really wanted to have a go... but I don't have any circle card blanks and I don't have any dies big enough to cut a card blank in the BigShot so I decided to have a play with my Cameo. And by overlapping two scalloped circle shapes and welding them I was able to cut out a shaped card base. Am so impressed with myself! :lol:
 
I decorated my card with some gorgeous freebie papers that came with a craft magazine and added a butterfly and flourish (also cut with the Cameo) and some flowers - including a resin flower from a matching set that came with the pretty papers:
 
 
And for the image I used this adorable Alisa With Roses digi stamp from Mo's Digital Pencil. Isn't she so sweet?
 
 
I'm also entering this card into the following challenges:

Great Impressions - Going Green

Gorgeous card, that must be so satisfying to create your own shapes as you need them! I have a Big Shot and I sometimes wish I could just change the size of that die...
Love your floral treatment, that mix of paper and resin really works well!
Thanks for entering our very first challenge at Hobbycutz!

Totally gorgeous, fab circle card, love the image and your colouring is spot on. I saw the magazine & free resin flowers in my paper shop and dimissed them, wish I'd bought the magazine now as it looks great on your card!

I can say that I totally love my Silhouette too! It has opened up a whole new world of crafting! I can say I have not bought any dies since I got my machine!

Your fun shaped card is wonderful!
