I thought for my first post with this design team, I would also do something else that was a first for me: an easel card!   I got this fabulous easel card cut set from My Scrap Chick.  There's a whole set of them that you can get when you sign up for their newsletter- and a new freebie comes every Friday in your inbox!  I cut the pieces at exactly the size they imported into my Cameo and it was a perfect size!  I did leave off one layer of the sentiment mat, because I wanted to stamp my sentiment (from My Craft Spot's "Birthday Wishes" set) directly onto the scalloped layer.  The patterned paper I used there is from a My Mind's Eye 6x6 pad.

The rhino is my print-and-cut portion of my card.  He is from Lettering Delights.  I thought he was so cute, and was perfect for a print-and-cut.  My printer is not the most awesome, but he still came out great.  One tip I've found for print-and-cut, at least for me, is to make sure that in Silhouette Studio you make your mat in letter size before printing. The times when I just left it 12x12 the registration marks weren't all there when it printed and it ended up cutting off-center because my Cameo couldn't tell exactly where it was supposed to cut.

I finished the card off with three skittles from Carri at DoubleClick AKA Abusybee.

The entire easel card.

Here's a closeup of my print-and-cut Rhino.

There's still plenty of time for you to create something for this challenge!  I hope you'll use your Silhouette and try a print-and-cut!  Visit us at Silhouette Challenges and play along!
