A Gamers card

Hi Everyone, my card today was for my Sons' birthday earlier this month, he is a gamer and has been playing Eve on line for years, so for his birthday this year, I decided to go the easy route and download an image from the web, to use on the front of his card. The background is a freebie I had recently, which was perfect for it.

I cut the name plate on the Cameo from mirror card, I was disappointed it had such a large over run on the cutting, but then thought it was sort of "robot -y", I kept the name in the frame and stuck it down then removed the frame and 3D'd it,  hubby thought it was a metal piece I had cut out, and Chris loved it all, even showing his friends, for a 41 year old that's something LOL. I was well pleased with reaction from both of them.

background sky dp - Fontbundles-Space watercolours
Tonic Crystal drops
font - EVE alpha, quite relevant.

  2. Fabulous card Faith, I don't where you get such wonderful ideas from. Re the text, it looks as if you have Line Segment Overcut selected and the setting is too high. You can turn it off or lower it in Material Settings in the Send Panel if you are using V4 of Silhouette Studio. I have mine set to 0.1 mm. I think it's at the bottom of the Cut Settings Panel in earlier versions. xx
