Pocket Silhouettes Get Well Card

Some times it's difficult to figure out how to make a big card using such a little image. The Stampin' Up! "Pocket Silhouettes" set is a good example of that.

I used the "3-D Technique" on the image. I stamped it using Chocolate Chip ink first and then stamped it again using the White Craft ink pad. You are not going to believe this but when I stamped my first one I actually stamped the white perfectly on top of the Chocolate Chip. What are the odds of that? And if I wanted to do that I never would have been able to do it in a million years with out the help of a Stamp-a-ma-jig.

I also practiced with the Scallop Edge punch and got that piece almost perfect!! Practice does make perfect!! Or darn close to it!

I used the new "Square Lattice" embossing folder on the layers of this card. I like the texture it makes, it's so different than any others I've seen.

The words were done on the computer. I'm still working off a sheet of them I printed out.

The looks of this card has a masculine touch to it. Add some ribbon, bows and buttons and it will have a more feminine touch. It's a very versatile card. It could be used as a birthday card, thinking of you card, thank you card and even a sympathy card.

It was a pretty quick card to make too if you don't get the images perfectly stamped twice on there!!! Embossing folders add a lot of texture to a background so you don't need to stamp on it which makes making the card go quicker too. And it was a VERY fun card to make too!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
