so there's this sweet little gadget called the silhouette sd - it has a blade and it cuts out whatever you tell it to. it's pretty fabulous, and i decided to make a pop up card with it. here's what the machine looks like:

it's legit - you can cut vinyl with it, create heat transfers,
etch glass, cut any shape you want!

i place my paper in the machine and these are the pieces it cut out.

vintage graph and map paper make a pretty nifty little piece of pop up! my card is done! love the shapes, it's amazing that the silhouette can cut such detail.

  40. How cute! For some reason though, I can't bring myself to cut the papers I have collected. I know it's silly but I just hate destroying anything, especially if it is vintage, it feels like such a crime :)) But this lovely postcard kind of makes me grab my scissors and cut cut cut! :)
