You know how much I enjoy thinking outside the box. Well, not only did that incorporate into the title on my page, it also incorporated into how I used an image from Silhouette to do something other than look like a pretty die cut on my page. :)
Take a look at this page of our recent trip to Glacier National Park. Yes, those are my crazy daughters jumping into the c-c-c-old river.
And here's a closeup.
Here's how to do it:
1. Place the arrow shape (arrow_1556) onto a new document screen and size it as needed.
2. Add a rectangle around the box to create the "template" cut out shape. Copy/cut it twice so that you can make a deep enough template. This is how it will look on your screen.
4. Lightly adhere this shape to the front side of your cardstock and flip it over. (I use Herma repositionable dots.)
5. Carefully feel for an edge of the shape (I just use my finger) and then using your embossing stylus, lightly run it around all the edges. Once you've done that, you can make a deeper impression.
Voila! You're done! I would practice on a some scrap cardstock first just so you can get the feel for it. I'm sure if you used a lightbox it would work even better, but it can work without one as long as the image isn't too complex.
And you just thought that Silhouette was for die cut shapes, now didn't ya. ;)
