Bird Card Using the Silhouette Weld Feature

Echo Park bird with welded circles all around to maker her fluffy.  I used the same technique on the right side of the pattern paper to create a scallop edge.

Dry embossed the inside.

Matching envelope

Hi all!  Thanks for visiting on this beautiful "summer" weekend.  I feel fall in the air, hence the colors used for this card and matching envelope.

I will be submitting this in the Silhouette Blog Weekly Shape Challenge and Giveaway.

The challenge is to use the Silhouette Studio weld feature.  I used the weld feature on two items on my card.  The first is this cute Echo Park Bird.  I purchased the bird from the Silhouette Online Store, then I created circles all around the bird, once I had the correct shape, I welded all the circles together.  I cold have made the bird a different color then the welded circles, but I liked this little one all one color.

The envelope was also purchased from the Silhouette Store.  It can be found here.

I also used the print and cut feature - all the pattern paper used was printed using the fill option in Silhouette Studio.  I L♥VE this feature!

I bought and recently used a card from the Silhouette Store with scallops like the ones I used on this card.  I wanted to see if I could recreate the look on my own (and then this challenge came along).  I had taken a class at Jessica Sprague and she taught us how to create scallops with Photoshop so, I wanted to see how easy it would be using the Silhouette Software.  There may be an easier way to do it than the way I did it...I love learning new things with my Silhouette!

Thanks for visiting!  Good luck to everyone entering the challenge!

You are too, too clever! Love your sweet little birdy. The colors are great (reminds me a bit of a football team we both know and love). Beautiful card my friend!
