I decided to participate in another challenge with SVG Cutting Files. This challenge is for birthday cards, the main focus should be something purchased from SVG Cutting Files.
I found it a little more difficult to make a card without someone specific in mind. I knew I wanted to make a Halloween birthday card at least, but in order to get the free files associated with the challenge I had to make two cards.
Since I am a scientist I thought I need to make a birthday card using the Science Rocks kit I had.
I made the card base to look like a benzene ring and used the science girl and test tube rack.
Inside it says “it has been scientifically proven that too many birthdays will kill you.”
I love using clear sticker paper for glass elements, like the test tubes and her goggle lenses.
For the Halloween birthday card I used the Chibi Werewolf file. I had actually purchased the set for the mummy, but the werewolf was perfect for this idea. Inside it says ‘Have a howling good birthday!’
I designed the card base to be like a haunted house. I used sketch pens to draw the spider webs in the windows. Parts of the tree are not glued down so the stick out for some dimension.
I also used dimensional foam tabs to pop out the ‘roar’ word balloon.
I, of course, used my Silhouette Cameo to cut out all the elements for the card.
