Quick & Easy Serene Silhouettes
July 07, 2015
I find myself often needing a quick and easy card design that is good for almost any occasion. I love this simple design that really meets most needs--birthdays, thinking of you, sympathy, just because...see what I mean. I can envision this for a multitude of occasions. You can even cut several sets of cardstock and just put them together at the last minute---or when you're watching TV, or talking on the phone (not that we don't totally concentrate on the conversations....just sayin'!)
Here's how you create it.
1 Cut the following from Whisper white cardstock
a. 4 1/4 X 11 (score at 5 1/2 on the 11 inch side) (card base)
b. 5 1/4 X 4 (use Boho Chic embossing folder on this piece)
c. 2 X 3 1/2
d. 2 1/4 X 3 3/4
e. 2 1/2 X 4
2. Using your Stampin'Write markers (Marina Mist & Old Olive) --don't forget to use the brush end and use the side of the marker--not the tip: color the flowers with Marina Mist and the greenery with Old Olive. Stamp the image on the 2 X 3 1/2 white cardstock.
3. With your 2-way glue pen, dab a bit of glue (it will be blue but dries clear) on the flowers and sprinkle with Dazzling Diamonds glitter. Let dry a couple of minutes.
4. Use a bit of scrap white cardstock and stamp the small butterfly (Papillon Potpourri) i--use your Marina Mist marker to color the stamp; punch out with Bitty Butterfly punch. Pinch the wings together slightly and attache to stamped image with a glue dot.
5. Layer the white cardstock c, d, and e together with dimensionals. Adhere this unit to the "b" piece of cardstock with multipurpose liquid glue; attache this to the white cardstock card front using liquid glue.
You are done! See how easy that is?
