Today’s card project was inspired by an unexpected source, the Scenic Safari Die-namics that I received as a free gift with purchase from My Favorite Things a little while back. At first, I wasn’t sure what I was going to do with them, but then I got started thinking about those soil / rock charts that show all of the different layers of Earth down to its core, as well as the marbling trend that’s so hot right now, and this is where I went with it.
I was itching to use this very cool copper glitter cardstock, also from My Favorite Things, and I think that it added a nice yet subtle touch of glitz. The “Good Luck” sentiment can be found in the shop, and I was so happy with how it turned out for this project. I added a double-sided adhesive sheet to the back of the cardstock before cutting it, and the Silhouette Cameo did a bang up job! I’ll definitely be using this technique in the future.
Silhouette Cameo cut settings for this project : Depth = 8 // Speed = 2 // Light Hold Mat // Triple Cut (a double cut, then another single cut)
