While looking for inspiration for last week's birthday cards classes, I found a great design by Brian King using Serene Silhouettes. I realized had not used that set for a long time. Sometimes I get so caught up with the "new" ones, that I forget about the other wonderful stamps I have. Does that ever happen to you?
For this card, I decided to use one of the retiring 2014-2016 In Colors, Lost Lagoon, the Curvy Corner Trio Punch and a Tea Lace Doily. Sadly, the Petite Pairs stamp set is also retiring.
The card stock layers are cut as follows:
- Soft Sky card base is 4 1/4" x 11"
- Basic Black is 4" x 5 1/4"
- Lost Lagoon is 3 3/4" x 5"
- Basic Black is 2 1/2" x 4"
- Whisper White is 2 1/4" x 3 3/4"
For the soft background, we used Timeless Textures (not retiring) and Soft Sky ink to stamp images on the Whisper White piece before stamping the silhouette with the Archival Basic Black Stampin' Pad.
