Print & Cut: Fathers Day

I love having "staples" in my digi stash!  I used a few for this card.  I designed this card in my Silhouette software and used the print & cut feature (love it! bRead on for a tutorial on this feature).  Once I had the shapes all laid out the way I wanted them, I simply dragged in the digi papers to fill the various items.

I used P365: Solids (Volume 2) and Back to Basics Paper by Wishing Well Creations. 2 great "go to" packs of paper.

I used some silver ink to bling up the tools. A mix of brown and orange inks helped to make the tool bench look worn.  Brads finished off the pegboard for "hanging" the tools.

Want to see more about how to use the Print and cut feature of the Silhouette to create a card like this? I've got a tutorial up at Ideas For Scrapbookers today. Stop by to see how easy it is!
