New Toy!!!!

A few weeks ago I was looking for another die cutting machine - one that would give me LOTS of freedom. After looking at videos and reading comments, I decided on the Silhouette Portrait.  Even though it is an 8x12 cutting surface (rather than the 12x12), I know it will do what I am looking to do.
This machine doesn't require cartridges and will the Studio Designer Edition, you can print(on your existing printer) and then cut the image on the Silhouette.  There is also the option to buy cut files from their website.

Last night I was looking at what was available and found a Birthday Cake Flip Card.  For just .99 it jumped into my "cart".  I played with it today and here is what I made:

 Now to try to make one that is suitable for a guy!  That is what I need to do, but this one doesn't look manly enough.  :)
