1. Design the entire card in your Silhouette software. I like to size out my whole card before I start cutting. Once the pieces are all laid out, I separate each piece and cut it individually.
3. Choose your pen and set up your machine for sketching. The Cri-Kit system is super easy to assemble. All you have to do is drop the desired pen into the holder. Remove the blade and pop in the sketch holder with pen.
5. Continue to sketch additional colors as desired by selecting the no cut and cut buttons. Do not remove your mat from the silhouette during this process. As long as your mat stays in place, your objects will be sketched or cut in the correct position.
6. Once you are done sketching, remove the sketching pen and put the blade back in. Select the outer edge that you want to cut and cut as normal. Remember, do not remove the mat before cutting.
I used the glitter blue pen for the wording...gotta love the sparkle and glitz!
8.Once all of the pieces are sketched and cut, assemble the card as normal.
I loved playing at this new, fun way to use my Silhouette. It gives such a unique look. For more information about the Cri-Kit pens, visit their site. So, what is my next sketching project? I am definitely going to be trying some of the pastel pens on dark paper. Ooh La La!
