Friends! The holidays are among us! Brittany here, testing out another awesome feature of the Silhouette Curio and sharing it with you all. With Thanksgiving nearing, that means Christmas decorating can officially begin! This week I tested loading thicker material into my Curio, and utilized the sketch pen option to ‘pen’ the quote for me!
It’s no secret that I’m a big fan of the dark wood/gold color combo, and that is no different during the holiday season. In fact, I think it might be an even stronger color pallet of mine this time of year! For this project, I used a 5mm piece of wood that I stained. The suggested platform thickness for sketch pens is 6mm, so doing some simple math I was able to figure out that with the cutting mat (1mm) + my piece of wood (5mm) = I should be set to go!
With a gold sharpie loaded into the Tool 1 holder spot, I sent my piece of wood through my Silhouette Curio with all fingers crossed. The sharpie was actually a tad too big for the largest pen holder, so I wasn’t quite sure if things were going to work or not, but luckily they did (even better than I had anticipated) and I love it!
What is your favorite Christmas color pallet? Favorite holiday decor? Well, dream it up and make a little addition to this year’s festive decor.
Happy Holidays & Happy Crafting!
