About my card:
Someone dear to me is turning 50 years old this year! She loves roller coasters and similar rides (and is trying to talk me into doing a some bungie jumping!) – when I saw the rollercoaster design from pop up , I just had to try to make my own design!
The card is made totally with my Sihouette Cutter. I used Silhouette Studio to design the card with some of the elements in my library.  The actual roller coaster was snagged by a google image search, but I did extensive adjustments to make the cross bracing larger, and therefore easier to cut IMHO :-)
The outside has layered elements:

  1. Ribbon base
  2. Bow base
  3. Bow details
  4. Bow center
  5. Name
I used a ball tipped floral tool to add some dimension to the bows.
The inside is composed of a sentiment printed “base”, which I glued the roller coaster on:

I’m quite pleased with how it turned out!
