Fairy Shaped Card

I'm rather pleased with myself as I've made my first cut file card on my Cameo. As you see it's a shaped card. I'm sharing this file with you here Many thanks to Adele who advised me when I was tearing my hair out. This is the same fairy as I used on my clock and it's from the Silhouette Store. First I cut out the card it'self in cream cardstock. Then the Fairy in lilac and added her as a topper. I've put acetate behind her wings so that when I added the sparkle those areas would be transparent for realism. I've also glittered the outline of her wings and her sash. The sentiment is another 3 layer cut in two shades, again designed and cut on my Cameo. To finish off I've added a lilac ribbon printed with hearts and a bow. The top layer of the insert is cut short so it doesn't show behind the fairy.


  1. Oh WOW!!!! You are on a roll now my friend :)

  4. Fabulous card P - I really need to start experimenting. I have been using my Cameo a lot for cutting digital images and using the trace and offset, and am really pleased with the results I'm getting. I now need to start experimenting more with the design side of things too! Thanks for sharing this. Have a great rest of the week:-)
