Such a new and exciting thing and I wanted to join in the celebration of their new home, but also celebrating their family as that's really what its all about.
I designed the image on the Silhouette software, starting with the names in Times New Roman, and literally built the tree around it. The tree is based on a clip art image of a tree which I cut it up and replicated leaves and branches to build the trees around the names. I used the 'weld' tool to join it all together.
To keep the names together I joined the letters with a small line piece which was added individually to the letters to ensure best placement as some letter by letter as sometimes the letters were joined by leaves or other pieces. Once all the hard work was done, I let the machine work its magic and give me this fabulous cut.
Glued down and mounted in a soft silver 8 by 10 frame.
The silver in the frame picks up the soft shimmer in the silvery aqua paper. The look is softer in real life. I think the next project will be making one of these for me!
