My first Cut and Print with my Cameo

Hi everyone!  I just wanted to share my 1st finished Cameo Card using the print and cut feature!

After struggling trying to learn how to work with SVG
files for over 6 weeks I finally got instructions that I could follow!!
We all learn in our own ways and for me it had to be in Black and White. I love tutorials but with something like this it didn't click until I was able to get typed out instructions that I found on a great Facebook group. The Happy Birthday cut is available in the Silhouette Store. The Beauty and the Beast is a internet find.
I am still learning how to use the Cameo so I can't give you exact sizes of the cuts. My next post will have complete instructions!!
For a first card using the print and cut feature i am really pleased with how it turned out!! I will post the instructions I received later this week for those of you that learn better by seeing it in writing in front of you!
Thank-you for stopping By and have a great crafty week!!!
