Pocket Silhouettes

My Club members made this card and matching envelope at last month’s meeting.  I tend to "forget" about odd-sized cards when I’m preparing for my classes, but I love the 3 x 6 size and our open-end envelopes.  They are elegant.  Of course, Pocket Silhouettes was on special last month.  I combined it with the Baby Wipe Technique so I would get a faux Spectrum pad look to my silhouettes.  Love it!  Colors used were Ruby Red, More Mustard and Old Olive…a great fall combination!

They stamped the flower stem three times on Very Vanilla and layered them with More Mustard, Old Olive and Ruby Red.  There is a strip of More Mustard along the base Kraft card with the Olive 5/8 Grosgrain Ribbon tied around it.  The flower stem layers are popped up with dimensionals.  We finished with the greeting Thanks So Much from the set.  A fairly easy, but WOW card!

I’m on the final countdown for my craft fair on Saturday.  At least I have enough done that my table won’t look empty.  I’ll be sharing photos of what I did next week!

Very nice, Connie. Love the different colors on the flowers. Baby Wipe Technique? How is that done? The kraft paper adds to the look.

Can’t wait to see what you had for the craft fair. Thanks for sharing.

I love the simplicity of this card: it made a beautiful card! I too, love the 3×6 card, but seldom remember to make them. It is great to see all of your talent!
