I'm loving the PRINT AND CUT feature on my CAMEO!! Woo-Hoo!
I chose several images to have the Cameo print.
First I put them on 8 1/2" x 11" cardstock on the Cameo screen with the Registration Marks.
Then I sent them to the printer to print.
I took that piece of cardstock out of the printer and adhered it to my Cameo mat.

The Cameo identifies the registration marks so that it will know where to cut the images.

After having the images print and cut out, I decided to make a shadow layer for them, cut those out, and below you can see the images adhered to their shadows. 

Another very cool feature about the Cameo is that you can tell is how bulky or tight you want the shadow. And of course you can print the shadow in any color you feed through your Cameo. I considered blue, but since I didn't have my card papers chosen yet, I stuck with white for now.

Below is the finished card using a PUN for this challenge.

  • A2 size card 4 1/4" x 5 1/2"
  • Pattern papers from Walmart "Colorbook" last year's spring colors
  • Cuttlebug dots for embossing the green layer
  • Ribbon from Offray
  • Tiny black buttons from Joann's
  • CARDZ TV STAMPS "Beary Sweet" stamp set for sentiment
  • Close To My Heart "Hollyhock" ink used to stamp sentiment (I love this color!)

  10. Don't you just love it -- I was so thrilled to do this the first time - you will really love it when you fill it in with your own pattern paper. I did that with the sock Bunny card. check it out-- the only thing now is to have a printer that prints 12x12-- Any way your card came out so super cute.
