Birthday Silhouette

Inspiration

Another easy card, inspired by a design I saw in a Stamp It magazine, designed by Dawn McVey. It's always fun to see cards that use stamps you have in your stash!

Instructions

IMAGE

Stamp the silhouette image on the front of the card in the dark orange ink - you actually have to stamp it twice in order to have it reach all the way across the card, so don't be afraid to let it "drop of the edges" of the card.

SENTIMENT

Stamp the greeting on the small piece of white cardstock (I actually stamp the sentiment BEFORE I cut the paper to be so small). Mount the trimmed sentiment on the small piece of orange paper.

ASSEMBLY

Stamp the background dots in dark orange ink on the orange paper. Tie a knot in a length of ribbon and adhere it across the upper portion of the orange paper, then mount this panel over the lower part of the flower image.

Add the sentiment stack in the upper right area of the card front.


Thanks for stopping by!
