For my birthday, my wonderful hubby got me a Wacom Bamboo Tablet, so I can draw my own images easily. In the photo above, you can see the tablet in the background.
To create this card, first I did a search on youtube to find out how to draw the bird. The tutorial I used is here. Like the lady in the tutorial, I used Inkscape to draw the bird. Once I was finished with the bird, I imported it to my Silhouette Studio software, where I traced it and then set the cut lines.
To create the sling shot, I used the font tool and chose the letter "Y" in Silhouette Studio, then I filled it a "wood" pattern. I created the tree using an existing file I had purchased from SIlhouette, it contained 4 leaves and some limbs. To create the trunk, I used the rectangle tool. The grass was also created using pre-purchased files from the Silhouette Online Store.
I cut "Happy New Year" using vinyl. Sooo easy to put on the card!
I tried to follow the first scene in the Angry Birds game - and I think it turned out alright. My goal was to draw and cut the bird, so mission accomplished!
