Anyways, Andy was home for the weekend. He went back to Winnipeg yesterday :-( It was good to have him home though.
My card today is for a man in your life, and it's from the June new release at Imagine That Digis, this is the Golf Set. Kris, kindly let me have a play :-)
I used the pre-coloured images from the Golf Set as well as the sentiments. The papers are from my stash.
I added some dimension by layering the image, using foam dots.
For the inside, just using some complimentary papers.
I am also including a little tutorial (as requested) on how I trace digital images, using my Silhouette Cameo. I know that there a lot of good video tutorials out there, however I thought I would share a pictorial here too :-)
Open up your Silhouette Studio Program. Top left, Click on File, then Open, and locate the digital image in your stored location and double click on the file, this will bring the image onto your mat in Design Studio.
Now to trace the image. You need to click on the little blue butterfly top right. This will open up the trace window. Then click on Select Trace Area. Trace around the image, I uncheck High Pass filter and then up the Threshold to 100%.
Next, click on Trace Outer Edge. This will give you a cut that is directly on the outline of the image. I have separated the digital image from the cut edge just to show you what I mean.
Now, you can put them back together and select both, then right click and group together the image and cut line. You can then size your image accordingly. I try and put several images on one page, so that I don't waste paper, then print out and cut your image.
Sometimes, you might want to add a little white border to your image. To do this, you will need to use Offset. So before grouping your image and cut line, at the above stage, click on the traced cut line, then right click and choose Offset, this will put a rather large outer edge to your digital, but you can resize this however you wish.
Over to the right, you can adjust the width of the Offset. I tend to go for 0.050 and then click on Apply.
Now you will see that you have two cut lines and you need to remove the inner one. Just click inside close to the inner line, this will select it and then all you do is delete it.
Then re-position your image inside the Offset cut line and group together. Then print and cut.
I hope that this tutorial has been useful to some of you out there and you were able to follow along. At some stage, I will get brave enough to do proper video tutorials for my blog. Maybe that is a summer project for me, to learn to do videos :-)
Here is the card once again to finish off.
