Video: Race Card for a Marathoner

Race card for a marathoner

I am really excited to share the new card I designed.  I am calling it the race card.  I used the notepad or any text program to type out “You did it!” many times and then copied that text into the box I created on the silhouette desktop. This will be the background I use to attach to the white card. This card did not use to many products. I used my silhouette and colored printer to create the background and then stamped out the runners and 26.2 emblem with black, blue and pink dye inks and attached everything to a card.

I have a video below that explains the process.  The night I made the card I had no problems.  However, the next day when I wanted to document what I did using the Quicktime player I could not get the text to post and size easily into the text box.  I am not sure what the problem was.  I have found the free version of the silhouette software to be somewhat touchy.  I am not sure if the speed of my internet carrier is intermittent or what.  If you have had problems like this will you leave me a comment?  Any way I got the steps documented so you can re-create it or use the techniques to create your own card.

#nancys_girls – Lets share on Instagram


I love to color images of little girls, clothing and women! I want to work on creating textures and clothing and lord knows I need to practice, practice, practice my hair coloring.  I was thinking it would be great to share with the Instagram community.  I am hoping you will post your images using the #nancys_girls.  I know I will be able to learn a lot from you.

I made a short video describing it a little more here.
