A new toy

My husband got me an eletronic cutting tool; the Silhouette Cameo.


I am still struggling with it as depending on the thickness of the material it needs to be set differently, and I've had occasions where the same settings didn't work for the exactly the same paper.

But when it works it is lots of fun. My first idea is based on Lisa Andersson's card shown here. After a few trial and errors I got the shape more or less right and combined with a snowflake shape which came with the machine to make this card:


TFL!

Oh boy, I'd find it so frustrating if the same setting doesn't necessarily work twice for the same card. I was wondering if it was the Cameo - we were looking at them the other day after C had been admiring the card.
