My First Silhouette Cameo Card

A while back I decided to order the Silhouette Cameo I was hearing so much about.  Last week they had a sale of all the images in the store for 50% off.  This is one of the images I bought.  It is a birthday card file by Daniela Angelova.  Donna came over yesterday and we were playing with the Cameo.  This intricate pattern cut flawlessly.  We were impressed.

I took the white card base, pasted a pink background to the front and added pink pearls to the white flowers.  I punched out some tiny flowers with the Martha Stewart Hydrangea punch, added them to wider circular strip and added tiny pearls to the center.  The final thing I did was add Crystal Stickles to the Happy Birthday.  It was very simple and easy to make.  I know we could probably make a similar one with the Cricut Expression but I'm not sure it would cut as intricately as this.  I think I'm going to enjoy having the Cameo as part of my arsenal of papercrafting tools.

This is a close up of the flowers.

Thank you for stopping by today.  We appreciate your comments & visits.  God Bless You!!!!!  Peggy


  1. Gorgeous card! I love the intricate pattern and how you added the pretty flowers and pearls! Enjoy your new machine!

  2. Beautiful card, the Cameo really works fantastic, love the embellishments you added.

  3. Peggy this is so cool! I have a Cricut and never use it. (Actually I have 2) They just sit gathering dust in my office. I'm mad at them and haven't decided what I'm going to do about that. :) Hugs,
