Hello, good to see you! hope your week is off to a good start, should be if you have made it over here. Today’s project features Rhinestones, and not in the traditional way. Instead, I used the Rhinestone feature and the pen holder to draw out the design onto card. From there, I used my Nuvo Drops to create a fun textured and coloured pattern as a background for my card.

The pattern was drawn out using the pen holder in the Silhouette Cameo machine. This mandala design was already a Rhinestone design in the Silhouette studio as was perfect for this project. As I was not using it with Rhinestones, I could resize the design to fit my 8″ square card as the size of the circles did not need to be exact.
Once the machine had sketch the design out in pencil, I used a selection of coloured Nuvo drops to use. After all the circles were complete, this was left to dry fully overnight. I finished both cards off with a ‘Hello’ sentiment, either as a layered die cut or a stamped sentiment.
