Sometimes the projects that can be done fairly quickly and don’t require a lot of supplies turn out to be some of my favorites! Like this little framed flower I made for today’s project.With just one shape, your Silhouette, the eraser tool and a couple of pieces of cardstock you can create dimensional art for your home.
You can create this same dimensional effect with just about any shape or text and it’s super easy to do which just gives you one more way you can use the shapes you’ve already got in your library.
To create the effect, I opened the flower shape in the designer edition of Silhouette studio. Then, after I sized it to fit my frame, I used the eraser tool, selected outline at the bottom of the tool window and simply erased the point of each flower.
Then, I deleted the outside border, drew a rectangle the size of my frame and cut it out of white cardstock. Once it was cut out I carefully removed it from the mat, lifted all of the petals and placed a bright color cardstock behind it before popping it into my frame. Easy peasy!
For a more in depth look at this technique, and for a way to get the same look with just the basic edition of the software take a peek at this tutorial…
Have a great Monday!
