Birthday Card in Die Cut Vinyl


Fell in love with this birthday design sold on the Silhouette Die Cut store – it inspired me to make a similar one for my nephew who just turned 8. I’m lucky enough to know someone who gives me vinyl scraps from their sign shop, destined for the landfill. Too small for commercial work, these scraps are the perfect size for cards. Each empty space is a piece of vinyl that must be “weeded” out by hand – something infinitely more challenging to do when it’s small text. It’s such a thrilling feeling when they say “You made this? I thought you bought it.”
