It’s a happy day here at PS: I get to give away a brand-new Silhouette Portrait to one lucky reader!! Woot!
Before we get to that, though, I wanted to share the DIY business cards that I made recently with my CAMEO and the Silhouette Studio Designer Edition Software.

In January, I was thrilled to have the opportunity to go to the Craft and Hobby Association Trade Shown in Anaheim, California. It was a fabulous experience, and I knew I wanted my business cards for the show to really impress. I decided to use the Designer Edition software to put together some cool scalloped cards that truly stood out from the crowd!
To start, I designed the graphic portion of the card in Photoshop, and I saved that file as a jpeg.
I then opened up the jpeg file with the Designer Edition software. I set my page width to 8.5×11″, and my cutting mat to 12×12″.
At the top right-hand side of the screen, I clicked on the button to open the Registration Mark Settings Window (the icon looks like 3 L-shaped marks around a square.) I clicked on “show registration marks,” and then I set my registration mark margins as low as they would go (.395″).
With my registration marks in place, I clicked on the printer icon at the top left of the screen and followed the prompts to print the image onto white cardstock.
While the file was printing, I framed each card on the sheet with a scalloped frame from my Silhouette library. (Note: This particular frame came as a freebie with my old Silhouette SD machine.)
Once my sheet was done printing, I placed it on the cutting mat, and then I clicked the on the Silhouette icon at the top left of the screen to send the file to my CAMEO for cutting. After just a few minute’s time, each of my cards was cut out beautifully! Yay! I love how these cards turned out, and it was such a cost savings to DIY them instead of ordering them.
