Shelly is really hard to make a card for because she's an awesome cardmaker herself. When I make a card for her, it has to be something special. I knew I wanted to use my Silhouette machine because I'm having so much fun playing with it and testing the limits of what it (and I) can do. When I saw Jen Gallacher's guest post on the Silhouette blog, I knew I had found my inspiration in the scrapbook page she had created. I also knew that the design would need to be scaled down to work within the size limitations of a card.
With a little help from this video of Whimsical Wendy's (no relation - although I WOULD love to craft with her!) I was able to modify my background to add a frame around it, and create the frame for my sentiment block. All of the other pieces were easy - just a matter of scaling them to the size I wanted.
I'm quite pleased with my results, and hope you enjoy the card!
