I’m so lucky!

March’s Silhouette Challenge is paper. I decided to decorate my workroom with a banner and horseshoe I downloaded from the Silhouette store:

lucky (2)

I used Recollections brand 65 lb cardstock (the 8.5 x 11″pack of greens) I picked up from Michael’s for all of the green paper I cut out and a greenish-gold/tan color sheet from a DCWV Neutrals 12×12″ Cardstock Stack for the letters and the horseshoe.

I already had the green autumn doily on my corkboard. It was one of the first things I cut out when I got my silhouette.

P1000914 (2)…..and of course I cut out cards to tuck into my online orders, like for my bath bomb of the month club.

I experimented with lowering the blade setting down to 2, but in some spots of the paper I was left with small uncut spots that I hit real quick with my exacto knife. I punched/poked out the tiny cut parts with a small screwdriver and then adhered them on to a pink backing to give the cutout more strength and contrast. I also experimented with placement. I like the top right ones the best. I also learned that Elmers glue is too wet (I got some puckering and wrinkling) when working with this paper, so I switched to using a CraftBond glue stick instead.
