Using Digital Paper with your Silhouette Cameo

I posted this yesterday on Samantha Walker’s blog and I could not wait to share it with you. It is such an honor to be on her design team!

I love Samantha Walker’s designs from the on-line Silhouette store and her amazing digital papers.  In today’s video tutorial, I demonstrate how to use digital paper with your Silhouette Cameo and how to make this cute card. On the video, I also demonstrate how to do a printer bleed so your print and cut designs come out perfect every time!

I love the versatility of this design.  All you need to do is change the paper and sentiment and you could use this card for almost any occasion! 

I used Samantha Walker’s  Blossom  Mega Kit for my project.This mega kit contains 8 textured solids, 8 floral themed papers in Pink tones, 9 floral papers in oranges and browns, and 8 deliciously sweet floral themed digital papers in the aqua tones. It also contains 140+ Blossom elements. In addition to the regular versions of the elements, there are embossed versions of most of the elements as well. I used the pinks, but can’t wait to use the aqua tones.

Have a wonderful day!

What a beautiful way to use digital paper. :)

I looked at that paper pack, and it said that in addition to regular elements, there were embossed versions as well. How do you get embossed elements with digital? Is it just an "embossed look"?

Beautiful card, Linda! I love your method of printer bleed - very clever tip that I will definitely be using!

Karen, thanks for the great question! It is an embossed look.

I can't tell you how happy I am that you shared the bleed instructions. I have avoided the print and cut because I can't deal with any of the white showing. Thank you so much.
Just an old lady that loves to craft.

Needleup, you are so welcome. I love to use that technique.
