Summer is around the corner, and I wanted to make a happy citrus-colored card that would make someone smile.

I first laid down my custom cut sentiment that was cut with my silhouette cameo.

I used wide post-it tape to mask off striping areas on top of the sentiment. I had 3 sets of two strips for each color because I didn’t want the colors to mix too much.

Then I eyeballed the stripes so they were around the same size and blended some inks for stripes.

After the stripes were done, I peeled off the masked sentiment and then added color- coordinated sequins all around.

You can see the process video on my instagram page.

  1. Hi I have just become a follower on Instagram and I love blending. I was looking at all the patterns and words you do and wondered if you are able to cut the designs with masking tape on thin paper or if you buy something in particular to go through the silhouette. I dont havecthe silhouette but I was just given a cut n scan and just starting to learn to use. I just love your colour blends and the way the words look when you remove the masking. Hope you dont mind my asking.

    • Hi,

      You can cut the masking paper with a manual die cutting machine like a big shot if you have a die you want to use. Or You can trace and hand cut it. Word dies with this technique work just as well! Cursive or handwritten works best. Hope that helps!
