Father’s Day Card Using The Pen Holder
Hello, hello – Karen here with my Wednesday post.
Now it’s no secret that my favourite thing to do with my Silhouette is to use pens. How fortunate then that we have been tasked to use the Pen Holder this week and I’m going to create a beautiful Father’s Day Card using it.
Using The Silhouette Pen Holder
This is a nifty bit of kit as you can use almost any pen – there are three different sizes of collar which screw into the holder enabling many types of pens to be used. It comes with a little white cap and I have often been asked what this is for.
You use it to regulate the depth the pen extends from the holder – ensuring that it is correct for your machine. Start by choosing the appropriate collar and part screwing it into the holder (as it goes further into the holder it will grip your pen) put the little white cap onto the end of the holder and then gently push your pen until it touches the cap.
Fully screw in your collar and you will now have the correct depth for your pen.
Preparing The Design For Printing
To draw my design all I needed to do was to choose the phrase I wanted to draw e.g. LOVE, add the pen holder to the left tool holder and choose send.
Now, change the pen and choose another phrase and repeat. You can see I have used a verity of pens including felt tips, roller ball and Sharpie.
