Happy Freebie Friday readers! A while back, I was standing looking at birthday cards at Target wondering why I was purchasing one. I mean, I have a handful of die cutting machines (Silhouette Cameo, Silhouette Curio, and Cricut Explore Air) – I should certainly be creating one! Honestly, I’m more of a home decor, vinyl, and paint kind of girl! I’ve gradually gotten more comfortable working with paper and I am thrilled to be able to share these easy birthday cards with you.
Download the free file of your choice in .studio3 format:
Files are okay for making a product to sell, but you cannot sell the file itself.
Once you get the file into Silhouette Studio, sketch the background using the pen holder and marker of your choice. Then, without unloading the machine, cut the card out. Next, load a new piece of cardstock and sketch the cake. Again, without unloading the machine, switch to a blade and cut the cake out. Color the cake to your liking and attach it to the front of your card with an foam glue dot. Easy as that!
Wondering why I chose a birthday card? Well, today is my birthday! I’m having a huge sale in my Etsy shop: Cutting for Business on Etsy. Prices are already marked down, no coupon code needed. If you are wondering how I did the sale hop over to this post from earlier in the week.
