For my friends/family that just purchased their Silhouette, I am going to show you how I made this.
Cut out numbers (2.105 x 1.415-font is Bernard MT Condensed)
Boy Grad is 3.5 inches tall
Remember to pull you original number or shape back off the mat
Weld the 2013 shadows together
Make another copy of the shadow
Make an offset shadow (.075)of the Grad-pull the original grad off the mat
Weld the Grad shadow to the second 2013 shadow
Make a red shadow (.075) of numbers and Grad
Make a black offset shadow of the Red set (.25)
Make a second copy of the black shadow-pull one of the mat for later
Make a yellow inset shadow of the black piece for the inside of the card (.50)
Here you can see that yellow inset shadow added inside the card.
To make the card base select the black shadow piece, go to
Object, Transformation, Mirror Options, and finally Mirror above. Slick huh?
You will need to nudge the two pieces to over lap each other slightly and then weld them together.
Here you can see the top layers I just made (all except the card base) I separated each of these layers by pop dots
Add to your card base. This is a pretty big card (7.5 x 4.25)
Now this looks like it would take forever, but it was quick and easy! The hardest part was figuring out the colors of the layers and keeping them all straight.
There you go Melissa, Linda and Ann!
