Silhouette UK: Creating two cards with one Rhinestone cut!

Hello, I hope you are having a great start to your week! Today’s project features Rhinestones, and not in the traditional way. I have never used the rhinestone feature before, I am not a rhinestone wearing kinda girl. However, I have seen other crafters use rhinestones and their Silhouette machines to create paper crafts and cards. I thought why not give it a go and share with you any tips I pick up along the way. So today, not only did I create one card, but I created two cards with one rhinestone cut!

Rhinestone Cut Card process overview

For using the Rhinestone feature, please make sure you head over to the Silhouette UK Blog (link at the end of the post). I have created an in depth walk through on how to use this feature in Silhouette on the Silhouette UK blog, and I am trying not to repeat myself in too many places.

Once you have created your rhinestone pattern and assembled your rhinetsones on the transfer paper, you will need to heat press them on to the card. The backing on the rhinestones, features a small amount of heat transfer vinly, and when heated will melt and adhere to your card. I covered the design and card with some baking parchment to prevent scorching the card. In addition, I used a simple iron to apply, presseing for 10-15 seconds at time until the transfer tape peeled away with no rhinestones attached.  

Using your Rhinestone Cut waste to create another Card

When you cut the rhinestone design out of the template material, you are left with waste black circles in the pattern of your design I decided to turn these into a card too! As this template material has an adhesive backing, you don’t need to apply any extra adhesive to the circles to adhere to a card. Using some transfer tape, burnish the black circles onto your tape so they peel away from the backing sheet. 

Before adhering the circles down, I ink blended some cracked pistachio and lucky clover distress oxides onto a square card panel. I applied the circles down onto the card, burnishing them off the tape. This card was finished with a heat embossed sentiment on a white strip of card. The whole panel was foam mounted onto a square kraft card base.
