Have I mentioned my love for Die Cuts With a View metallic paper? It cuts like buttah on the Silhouette, has just enough shimmer to make things look fancy, and the silver color looks great on any card. For example, this fancy-looking silver, gray, and black anniversary card for a friend:
Algeria with the shadows removed (simply "ungroup" your text in Silhouette Studio, then double click the letter/number and delete the unwanted points). Of course, while trying to find the link, I came across this font which is almost the same, but with the shadows removed. Doh! But at least I know for next time, right?
The rest of the card: Polka dot paper is My Mind's Eye Lime Twist Out of the Blue paper pack, black scalloped circle with Silhouette Studio file, I made an offset shadow of the letters in black, and the numbers are up on foam tape and they look fabulous:
In other news, the kids show up today at school. I'm pretty excited about my schedule, plus I'm having some kids for the second year in a row and they're the type I actually like to have twice, so I'm hoping it might be another good year like last year. Plus with my new haircut, I can sleep in an extra 15 minutes! Bonus!
