Am back with one more sympathy card.
The next one is utilizing a file I really like (cannot remember where I got it )! I have used it before with an acrylic and glitter background and it cuts like a dream. There is something so serene about a gentle hummingbird flitting gracefully from flower to flower. I am highlighting a closeup of the hummingbird feathers because of the detailed cut I was able to get with the Silver Bullet Professional. You can see how minute those feathers are and the machine just sped through those. I always worry when I have it cutting so fast that it may not be able to handle the details if there are a lot and/or they are tiny, but it never disappoints. The cardstock is from the incandescent line (candido and nero) from Paper Temptress - they both have what looks like thin gold threads woven through the paper. It is so elegant and why I chose the gold pearl accents for the hummingbird eye and the flower. I used a gold leaf pen to get that rich gold color.
I think this is one of my favorite cards.
