Featured Stamper Silhouettes
I had some free time this afternoon, so I decided to take a look at this week's featured stamper challenge. Kim has a great gallery, and I decided to CASE this card. My Stem Silhouettes set doesn't see near enough ink, so I thought Kim's card would be a perfect opportunity to break it out.
I kept the same basic colors as Kim, but I changed my background cardstock to Very Vanilla, my layer to Chocolate Chip, and my card base to Old Olive. I liked the paper piercing on Kim's card, but I decided to change the placement a little bit and added it around my square instead. I just left off the piercing where my stem extended past the square. I also changed the sentiment and ribbon and added some brads and distressing.
I think this is a great fall card, and I may just end up using this design for my Thanksgiving cards this year.
Thanks for looking!
