The next step was to try it out! After playing around for a while, I took the plunge and let it cut!
It cut out the solid shapes ok, but tore the sentiment to bits. I have taken some advice from Fb friends to use smooth paper, slower cutting speed and higher blade setting and had some success.
I can see it will take time and practice to get to know the capabilities and settings.
This is my first card using Silhouette and I love the little string of stars. I have used Hero Arts brush strokes and distress ink for the sky. This is my 2nd card for the MFW Constellation/ Trendy Star Power challenge. I'm also entering this in the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - Something New and Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge - Something Blue! Oh and I found a challenge another challenge called Silhouette Challenges - Anything Goes.
It's similar to my 1st, but simpler and a bit more artsy.
