Serene Silhouettes

Did you ever buy a stamp set on a whim and when you started playing with it you knew you made a wonderful choice?  That is how it was with this Serene Silhouettes set.  I wasn't sure why I bought it but once I started playing with it I was glad I bought it.  

When I was looking at it in the catalog I had notebook covers in mind but now that I got to play with it for a few minutes I knew I would be using it for much more than just notebooks.  This is an extremely versatile set and I can see myself making LOTS of different cards with it and for different occasions too!

For my card today I used Regal Rose for the base.  On top of that I had cut a 5-3/8" x 4-1/8" piece of Basic Black card stock.  The white piece is cut 5-1/4" x 4".  I stamped the butterfly circle image three times on it.  I didn't even use the Stamp-a-ma-jig, if you can believe that.  I know I was shocked!!!  

After I stamped the three images I taped them together.  Then I added a piece of black ribbon around them and taped them in place on top of the base of the card.  If you don't have ribbon, you can always use a piece of black card stock.  

The image was stamped on a piece of Whisper White card stock that measured 3-1/2" x 2" using Regal Rose ink.  I stamped it once and moved it slightly and stamped it again.  You will see that better if you click on the photo.  That piece was set on top of a piece of Basic Black measuring 3-5/8" x 2-1/8".  And those two layers were set on top of a piece of Regal Rose that was cut 3-3/4" x 2-1/4".  

I finished off the card by adding a few pearls.  Three of them on the flowers.  Again, you'll have to click on the photo to see that closer. There's three small pearls on the corner of the layered image and three larger ones on the circle image piece.  

This was a very fun and easy card to make!!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
