Digitally-cut Retirement Card {Silhouette Cameo 3}

Hi peeps! And welcome back to another card making video.

I created this card for my office-mate and friend Martine, who will be retiring at the end of the month. I have shared an office with Martine for over a year now. During that time, Martine has not only been an amazing office-mate, but has also become a good friend who will be sorely missed.

Today’s card is slightly different, as I created it using my Silhouette Cameo 3 digital plotter. I got hold of a Cameo 3 a couple of months ago and hadn’t really put it to much use as I found the Silhouette Studio Software a bit daunting to begin with. However, last week I came across an amazing Silhouette YouTube channel in Spanish called “Planeta Silhouette” (and I know there are many other wonderful channels out there too!) and it encouraged me to give my Cameo 3 another go.

Today’s video by no means aims to be a tutorial on how to use your Cameo 3, but simply a way of sharing the creative process behind this card design, which could be easily replicated using regular dies. If you would like to see more videos of my digitally-cut creations, please leave me a comment and let me know about it!

Bonne retraite, Martine! Je te souhaite que le meilleur des bons vents t’accompagne tout au long de cette nouvelle aventure. 

Happy digital crafting everyone!
