SVG Christmas ~ First cut

Welcome Crafters - Well I did it! I bit the bullet and ordered the Silhouette Portrait die cutting machine - Oh my... I cannot believe how this machine cuts intricate detail.

The deer scene was a freebie from Miss Kate's  [thank you very much!] and I must say - after I did a test cut for this paper, followed by cutting this deer scene svg using the Silhouette Portrait--- I was totally amazed!  2 Designs came with this scene  [I have not learned how to separate the 2 designs as I am still learning]

Anywhoo this is my first creation and I am totally happy at this point with the working of this Silhouette Portrait and I am amazed that the machine is very light weight- I also received a great deal on this purchase of this Silhouette Portrait on Cyber-Friday as well as many fabulous EXTRA's including a gift card to the store, and the Designer Edition - Whoot! Whoot!

Have a blessed day and thank you for stopping by---- and one last thing,  I have more projects in the making -stay tune! ~ blessings ~ Gail ~

  1. I really must use my Sil. Portrait - I've only had it two years!!!! What a great card you've made with the cut images. Thank you so much for entering the Christmas Cards All Year Round (Anything Christmas/Holiday) Challenge this month, lots of luck and I hope we see you again very soon. Hugs to you Sue Pxxx DT

  2. Great card Gail! Amazing work first time out with your new machine! I remember a few years ago I purchased an ecraft cutting machine - took me a week to get a circle out of it!! I'm looking at a silhouette machine after Christmas!

  3. Wonderful creation. The Silhouette cuts wonderfully and so does the Cricut Explore. Also Miss kate will have a challenge on Facebook starting on the 11th of each mth.

  5. Love the card!!!! And I love, love, love my Silhouette!!! I have no doubt you will too!!!!

  6. WOW I'm SO VERY impressed with your first cut! I use my Cameo occasionally, but mostly for print and cut, I mustn't be so afraid of it LOL.

  7. Beautiful card! My Cameo came in the mail yesterday, not sure when I will be brave enough to tackle it, lol. Thank you for joining us at Sunny Day Crafting!
