    I do not have a Silhouette.
    "Sunshine HoneyBee"

  2. Thanks for the tutorial for the card. It came out great (its for my nephew). I love when the Silhouette files have a tutorial, otherwise it takes forever to figure out. The file worked perfectly.

    1. So glad it was helpful to you:) Thank you!

  3. Love this file. I look forward to seeing many more varieties of these.
