Making Cards with Your Silhouette Cameo

making cards with the silhouette cameoHomemade cards are just one of those special touches in an age where texting and emails are substitutes for face-to-face contact. Using the Silhouette CAMEO to create that thought-filled, homemade card is easy.

Using Silhouette Cameo’s self-adhesive cardstock makes working intricate cuts or small images much easier to deal with. Self-adhesive papers mean you aren’t trying to get glue or double sided adhesive on teeny-tiny pieces. (Although, we have a great tutorial on positioning die-cut letters.)

Next, move on to select your card base shape. Silhouette Online has hundreds of shapes available. Simple, intricate, easy, basic, you name it – it’s there. Or create your own card by using any shape. Watch this tutorial by nasayi to learn how to create your own card base.
