Thanksgiving Cards and Silhouette Pen Feature

Turkey day is upon us, and yes, I just finished my cards today.  Do you have those quiet days mornings after a long week when you have an idea for a card and before you know it you are still in your PJ’s and it’s 2:00 in the afternoon?   Today was one of those days for me.  Coffee in hand I walked into my craft room at 7:00 a.m. and did not look up!  It was fantastic!!!

Thanksgiving Cards

Here are some of the cards I made today.  
Turkey & Tree Card


I continue to learn more about my Silhouette, but today was the first time I used the pen/sketch feature.  New sentiment stamps cost $$$ and need to be stored.  Problem solved! 

Silhouette Pen
Inserting a personal sentiment in your card is as simple as selecting the font, writing the sentiment, aligning the sentiment placement for the card and selecting the sketch option on the cut menu.  
This was AWESOME!
In the past I did some of this in MS Word, but using the Silhouette software allows the words to fit together nicely. 
FYI, somewhere I have information on how to repurpose an empty Silhouette ink pen into a holder for smaller ink pens.  I will share it in a post or on YouTube when I find the information.  Not only can you save $$$, but the color options are unlimited. 
Have a safe and wonderful Thanksgiving!
