Easy Silhouette Cards

I recently purchased an electronic cutting machine and I have been having so much fun designing different files to cut for my cards! Today, I am sharing a quick and easy set of silhouette cards that I made with a set of cut files that I have for sale in my Etsy shop now! They are plant themed and such an easy way to whip up a quick greeting card. Be sure to watch the video tutorial below and if you want to create a set of cards of your own, check out the listing HERE!

The SVG Cut File Set

To make these easy silhouette cards, I used a SVG and PNG file set in my electronic cutting machine, specifically a Cricut Maker. This file set was designed by me and can be found in my Etsy shop. Here’s a look at what’s included in the set and remember, each image is included in both PNG and SVG files!

The Card Base

This set was designed for A2 cards. And each card I made is A2 in size. I have an entire video tutorial and a free download on creating card bases and their sizes! Check it out HERE!

Making the Easy Silhouette Cards

There are so many ways to use this set and design easy silhouette cards. I made several different cards and each one is a bit different! Here’s a look at each easy silhouette handmade card.

I love cutting out the card fronts from white cardstock and adding the fronts to a card base with foam tape. The little bit of dimension gives a nice shadow so the design can really stand out. You can do tone on tone, but I like to add a bit of color behind for even more definition of the design.

You can also use different type of cardstock to add more interest to the easy silhouette card fronts. Here, I added glitter paper behind the flower silhouette only and left the sentiment as white. I love the two look of two different tones!

In this set I included silhouette card fronts with both sentiments and without sentiments. Those without sentiments are perfect to add your own stamped sentiment like I did on the card above.

You can also trim these silhouette down, like I did with the card above. I love the smaller version and adding a thanks sentiment that I also cut with my electronic cutting machine was the perfect addition to this clean and simple card.

In the set, I also included the cut outs themselves. I already had the artwork done, so I thought why not? These are fun to also use on your card fronts in silhouette form. I love adding them over a bright background with a simple sentiment so they really stand out!

You can also pair the silhouettes with die cut or electronic cut sentiments like I did here. I added the silhouette to a frame with a bright background for a shadow box effect!


I hope you all enjoyed a look at how to create these easy silhouette cards! If you are interested in any of the supplies I used today, you can find them all linked down below. Until next time, happy crafting!!
