So I am feeling pretty satisfied with my new product cards.
I was just trying to find something to do with my sketch pens, had this idea, and was pleasantly surprised with how they turned out!
Of course, you could definitely make these without a Silhouette, using your printer and a pair of scissors!
Here's what you need:
- Silhouette sketch pens
Start off by making your shape of your cards using your Silhouette software. The design I used is a shape that was already with the software.
Then use the text feature to place your words inside your shape. I put my shop title and web address.
Next you want to take your shape away! You don't need those to be sketched on.
Then you'll switch out your blade for a Silhouette sketch pen. Lucy chose purple.
Send it to your Silhouette by pressing the cut button, but make sure you switch it to Silhouette sketch pen! Here's Lucy in action.
Doesn't it look nice?
Now you're going to go back to your Silhouette software and put your frame shape back over the words.
Switch out your sketch pen for your blade.
Here's where I made a mistake! I forgot to take my words off the page! So when I sent it to cut, it was trying to cut out those tiny words, too! Not good.
So take the words out here!
Then send it to your Silhouette to cut. It should cut your shape perfectly around your words.
Now add your product and you have some nice looking cards to display your hard work!
Even if you don't sell products, if you make anything as gifts, this would be a fun way to gift them out.
