Silhouette CAMEO giveaway still going on HERE.
Today I want to share with you how to make a card out of a shape.
I got an email from a sweet reader named Meg. She wanted to make a baseball cap birthday card for her grandson.
She wanted the bill of the cap to be a different color.
So today, I’m going to share with you the tutorial to make a custom baseball cap card.
Since the Silhouette shape didn’t work for what Meg wanted, I had to trace my own. I found this image online…
….and created this.
As I started making this card, I soon realized that to make a regular tutorial with photos, there would be a TON of pictures to show each step.
So instead, I made a video tutorial. It’s about 10 minutes long, so sorry about the length, but it covers how to import your image, trace it, delete points to create multiple parts of a shape so you can group/ungroup, welding shapes, removing cut lines from text, and more.
One thing I forgot to mention at the end of the video, is make sure you size the entire shape to the desired measurements. Then you can print the card out (print and cut tutorial HERE), and cut out the various parts before putting the entire thing together!
Please let me know if you have any questions! I hope you’ll have fun with this and start using your own shapes to make custom cards!!!
