Silhouette Sketch Card – Step by step tutorial

Hello everyone!

This time I am back with a card exclusively made using Silhouette Cameo’s Sketch feature. I tried to incorporate the sketch marker in almost every element of the card.

IMG_9638I started off by scoring a 12″ x 4″ cream cardstock into half. I went for this light black glitter sketch marker pen to sketch the backgound. The vellum I’ve used here too is a shimmery one.

IMG_9557The background sketched on the cardstock is the file Tiles Square SketchΒ from the silhouette design store. The two tags that I have used for the card too is edited and cut from the background image. I also went ahead and sketched the Flower SketchΒ bought from the Silhouette Design store. The vellum is measured and cut at 3.5″x5.5.

IMG_9559Out with my Copic markers to color the flower image. The colors here used are Y06, Y13, Y15, YR04

IMG_9567Β The green hues used for the leaves are YG03, YG13, G07

IMG_9573I decided my flower needed some dimension so I sketched, cut and colored yet another flower but this time without the leaves.

IMG_9592This is how it looks stuck on top of each other using a double sided foam tape.

IMG_9599This sentiment was a random ‘thanks’ font image I found online that I edited and sketched using the Sketch feature with the same black glitter marker and later went ahead and cut it. I also cut out two more of it but this time with just the outline of the sentiment.

IMG_9609This is how it looks stacked and stuck on top of each other. This just made the sentiment sturdy, thick and gave it a chipboard look. I later decided to color it all black and top it with some glossy accent.

IMG_9611I put them all together. I glued down the vellum using a transparent double sided acrylic foam tape. I punched some green eyelets into the tags. I also added some sequins to the background.

Here is the final outcome!



I hope you liked it!
