Hey, so great to see you’ve popped over to the blog today. So if you have seen my previous post you will have seen how I have tried using the Rhinestone feature in the Designer edition to create cards. The first used it in the traditional manner, but I also create a card with the waste from the template. You can find that post here. For the post last week, I used the rhinestone feature to help create cards with the use of my Nuvo drops, and you can find that post here. Today, the last in my little mini series in using the Rhinestone feature in Silhouette, I used it to create modern cards with sequins! Two cards I used to create a sentiment and one card I made a basic design pattern and converted this into a rhinestone pattern.
Rhinestone feature Take 3 - Sequins Card Process overview
Once your have you design in silhouette studio, convert it into a rhinestone design with the rhinestone feature. For the sentiments, the Design Store has a Rhinestone font by Lori Whitlock. When you send it to your machine, make sure you change the cut settings to sketch and use your pen holder with a pencil in the machine.
The machine will draw the design out in pencil. Everywhere there is a circle, add a small mount of liquid adhesive – I use Glossy accents as this is a strong adhesive . Using your Silhouette Pick-Me-Up tool, position a sequin over each circle. Allow to dry before assembling the rest of your card.
For the cheers card, I used some lovely colourful jewels from Lucy’s cards, found here.
