I bought the Cameo Silhouette ("Cammy" as s/he is now known) to cut fabric shapes for applique and embroidery projects. After a shaky start, it's now working really well.
Of course Cammy wasn't designed to cut fabric, s/he (can't tell yet whether Cammy is a he or a she) was designed to cut paper and vinyl and stuff; the fabric cutting is just a bonus.
I thought about Cammy and what s/he could do. So, I decided to try a "simple" cut of his name in the card, backed with fabric. Despite the " ", it really was easy.... it just took me 4 or 5 versions of text before I found a combination of font and size that showed the aeroplane pattern off reasonably.
It wasn't easy to stick the fabric to the card at the front - double sided
tape and glue dots didn't stay stuck to the fabric. In the end, I used Pritt to stick the fabric to the inner lining sheet, then used double sided tape around the inside frame and stuck the lining sheet to that.
The images are a bit big, really, to be used in a name cutout. I suppose I could have cut a shape....maybe an aeroplane shape... and backed that.....
No. I'm not doing it again. I'm not.
But I will bear that in mind for other items.
