Each year I make my own Christmas cards as a tradition. Sometimes I design them in Illustrator and let them print off, but they are always designed by me. This year I used my Silhouette Cameo. I drew the moose heads in Illustrator and send them off to my Cameo. Boy do I love this piece of equipment. It does not only cut paper, but also fabric and vinyl. The decals were made on the cameo as well. For those who have one at home, you can download the moose tags right here.
I’ve used 220 gr A4 card-stock to cut out the tags using a 12″ x 12″ mat for the Cameo. I’ve made the felt balls for noses myself using this technique.
I’ve used bakers-twine for strings and I wrote a short message on the back, as simple as “Boris and Yvonne” – we don’t do long Christmas letters in this household. Pop them in a cute envelop and send them to those you love. I never over send my Christmas cards, just to family and to people who float my boat.
