Did you know that not only does the Silhouette Cameo and Portrait machines cut out items like cardstock, vinyl and fabric but it can also sketch too?! By inserting the pens into the blade holder you can draw out beautiful images. Silhouette has many images made specifically for sketching but if you also have the Designer Edition of the software you can convert just about any die cut into a sketch and draw those out too. The possibilities are almost endless!

Here’s an example of what the sketch pens can do. For my card I repeated a lovely flower design all over my cardstock for the background. I changed pens as I went, using the cut/not cut window to isolate the images I wanted to sketch each time. I cut out an extra flower with a couple of leaves and also sketched the sentiment for a really pretty card.
