“Hello Friend” Card – Silhouette America Blog

“Hello Friend” Card

Here’s an idea for a simple but fabulous card for a friend!

I used a circle border and welded it together to make three rows of circles. (You can find out more about welding here.)  Those empty circles made a great “home” for all of the embellishment that I wanted to add!

I filled the spaces with some enamel dots and buttons.  I added those sparkly sequins using a bit of double-sided adhesive and some of our new glitter colors!  Last but not least, a print and cut label for my sentiment and this card was basically finished.  I love when projects come together easily, but still pack a punch!

  1. I won’t have my Cameo for another few weeks, but I’ve been playing with the software. Can I submit something even if it hasn’t actually been cut yet?

    1. Sure! Send me a screenshot of your creations!

  2. Hi, this is my first attempt at making a card based on you sketch. I’m a beginner and learning so much from this blog. Thank you.

    1. I love it with the hexagons and different shapes! Great job!

    1. Love it. Your dog is so cute

    2. That is awesome Sandy! I love how you filled your circles!

  3. I am having trouble with welding the circle border even after watching the video. I arrange the circles so they are over lapping and select them both. However when I press weld the smaller centre circles disappear. I am doing something wrong and would love some help. Thanks

    1. Nicole – Before welding, try making the circles a compound path. You can do this by right clicking on your mouse, and then choosing “make compound path”. I hope that solves your problem!

    2. Thanks Jen. It worked. Such a simple solution. I really appreciate your help.

  4. I absolutely love how you put the embellishments in each of your circles (I will be using this idea in the future…..ty)
    I played along this week with your sketch using the freebie shape.

  5. That’s What Che Said sent me. Thank you so much for the giveaway. I’m keeping my fingers crossed that I win because I have a list of projects that I want to do, not-to-mention all of the ways I could use this in my classroom.

  6. Great composition on the Hello Friend card. Love the kraft as a base.

  7. Love the Hello Friends cards. Hope I win the giveaway so I can give it a try!

  8. I have sorted out the problems I had been having with Blogger so have been able to post a card made interpreting the design sketch. It is the first time I have played along with your sketch challenge, so I hope you like it!
    The link to my blog-post is here.

    1. Pretty! I love the white-on-white look!

  9. I got my Silhouette last week and never thought it would be so much fun!!! Think I’ll be writing a blog series about getting to know my new BF – fun, fun, FUN. You can have a look at what I did here: http://playasugo.blogspot.com/2013/08/playing-with-glasses.html

    1. I love the idea of making vases out of extra cups! Cute!

  10. Since the bundles expire – can you post what the various shapes used are? I added them to my cart in the Silhouette store, but they disappeared, and now I can’t remember what they were called.

    1. Jen – I usually update the blog post once the bundle expires – forgot this time! Thanks for the reminder! You can find the shapes listed at the bottom of the post now!
