Updating for Silhouette • A Chevron Christmas Card

Back in 2005, well before I was blogging, and long before I owned a Silhouette Cutting Machine, I designed a Christmas card based on the tree with a chevron pattern.  Each card involved lots of careful cutting and I made 70 of them by hand. Over the years numerous people have contacted me through this blog to get the pattern for this card.  Today, I finally adapted it to Silhouette and have just uploaded it to the online store.  It should be available here in a day or two for download.


The new silhouette cut design is on the left and the original from 2005 is on the right.  I hope to be adapting other designs of mine to this wonderful cutting tool. If you need ideas for handmade cards take a look through my 30 years of handcrafted designs pictured here. And here are links to a variety of other posts about my handmade cards.
