Happy Birthday!

Today is my youngest daughter's birthday and I used my Cameo to make her card. One of my favorite things about this machine is the print and cut feature. Basically it allows you to print an image on your printer, then cut it out with the Cameo. Some images require a little work, such as tracing, but this is done with just a click of a button. I still say there has been learning curve for me with this machine and the software ( I have the Designer edition which allows for cutting SVGs and other types of files), but the more I play and learn, the more I like it!
The image is from Digi My World and is called Staci Big Wish. I did add some stickles to her dress and some Glossy Accents to the cupcake top. The sentiment is one I purchased from the Silhouette Store. The top layer is glitter paper and it cut quite easily with the Cameo. I also added a bow, made with three pieces of Baker's Twine.
The background paper is My Mind's Eye from the Holly Jolly stack. Yup, it's a Christmas paper, but the colors worked great for this card. The sentiment papers were from my scrap stash and the Staci image was printed on plain old Georgia Pacific white card stock. Almost forgot to add, I put the Staci Image on an Action Wobble to make it a little fun!
Thanks for stopping by!
Here's my beautiful daughter at a little over a year:

and now all grown up with her own family:

Super cute card, Maria! I just got a Cameo and I've played with it a bit, after watching some You Tube videos. I'm planning on taking a couple of online classes that were recommended by a couple of bloggers I follow. If you'd like the link, email me.
