Regardless, I did want to make a few cards recently, and here are the results.
The first one was for my mother in law's birthday. This card was made with print and cut, my favorite feature of the Silhouette Cameo. The card itself is pale pink cardstock but everything else is print and cut. I filled the background shape with the pretty rose pattern, use the color matching dropper tool to pick out pinks from the roses and make a gradient of colors for the cake, and filled in the cake stand and candle parts with solid colors. Print, cut, glue, voila!
I'm considering making our holiday cards this year instead of ordering the ever-present Shutterfly photo card, but we'll see if I have the patience for that (especially with a newborn coming soon!).
