Hello Card Five Ways

Hello!  The most common greeting and a very fitting salutation for this post.  Today, I'm using the Copper Mountain Hello Cuts from Studio Calico to create five different cards.  One of my goals for 2014 is to send out more cards and these cards are perfect to have on hand!

I've created two different videos for this post.  The first will show you how to import the Studio Calico svg files into your Silhouette software and customize them.  The second shows how I put all five cards together.

Doll up your cuts using wash tape, gems, masking and ink, glitter or simply add some patterned paper to make quick and colorful cards.
This card uses washi tape from the Studio Calico Spaulding Bowl add on
and a coordinating marker to add color to the greeting.

I used the Studio Calico Spaulding Bowl add onwashi tape and some gems from the kit as well for this version.

I used some glitter and twine to create this sparkly card.
This one might be my favorite!
Adding patterned paper behind the cut creates a happy, colorful alternative.
This paper is from the Studio Calico Copper Mountain Card Kit
I used a mask and some gold ink to add color to just the hello and
create a perfect gold border.

  1. Love all the different looks you created with this one cut...very cool. Gold glitter is my favorite

  2. So many cute hello cards! I love how you used the cut file!

  3. I just found your blog....wow! Your Silhouette Studio tutorial is perfect and oh so easy to follow! Can't wait to see what you do next! Thank you for taking the time to create these videos!

  4. It was really fun seeing the same cut used in so many different ways :)

    Best crafty wishes!

  5. I have a question... I just found your blog and youtube videos for the first time. Are you using a MAC instead of a PC? I am not very computer literate yet but I am assuming that they have different ways to upload and use svg files. I loved your instructions and would love to try something like this but need instructions for doing this on a PC. I just got my cameo last week and am brand new to this. Thanks!

    1. Lisa, it shouldn't be different. The ONLY difference I can think of is that instead of using the "command" key, you will use the "control" key for when I typed in commands. Otherwise, everything else should be the same. Good luck!

    2. Okay! I guess I just need to figure out how to get my saved files into the silhouette program. Mine don't want to make the transition. Thanks. :)

  6. Carissa,
    Thanks for the video, I loved your cards!!! I tried to replicate this today and my letters keep tearing while it was cutting they also were pulling apart from the circle after it was done cutting, any advice??
