Fall Crow Card and Place Cards




I love making shaped greetings cards and, using the Silhouette Studio software, it is easy to make other shaped papercraft items too. In this post I'll show you how I made shaped place cards for my Thanksgiving table.

The Thanksgiving card and place cards were made using the new SVG release from Sanqunetti Design - Fall Crow SVG.


Supplies Used

Silhouette Cameo® 3 and Colour Printer
Silhouette Studio® Designer Edition (or higher)
White printable medium-weight Cardstock
Googly Eyes
Beacon 3-in-1 Adhesive


Instructions

To make the place cards, I made an offset from a small version of the crow and cut the offset horizontally across the centre using the software's Knife tool (using the Outline setting, rather than the Solid default).  The upper half of the crow offset was then positioned level with the centre line of a place card-sized rectangle.

Fold lines were added at the centre line either side of the offset.

A complete crow image was then centred within the outline and a patterned background added behind (minus the crow's eye).

Next a rounded rectangle with a coloured outline was added with family names centred inside.




The whole design was then placed within a Print & Cut window, together with a copy and some (optional) separate elements.

It was then a simple matter of printing the design as shown on a home printer, and sending the printed card through the Silhouette Cameo to cut out.

To finish, each cutout place card was folded and the the google eyes added. Optional elements were added too.






The fall crow cutting file is available from the Sanqunetti Design website and at Judy's Etsy store.


Of course, I couldn't resist making a matching paper-pieced greeting card too. Isn't he cute!
