A Summer Silhouettes Birthday

 Summer Silhouettes is such a fun set to play with and extremely versatile too.  This lonely image could be used for so many occasions, including a sympathy card. 

I thought this would be a fun image to use on this layout. I don't usually do these kinds of layouts but I saw one somewhere on the net and I thought I would run with it.  I guess I ran in a slightly different direction because the other one had the words on a scalloped layered piece and I opted to put the words directly on the focal piece.  I'm not sure why I did that.  Maybe because there was so much space there at the bottom but then again the scalloped layered piece could have gone there!  Who knows how I think?!  LOL

The Chocolate Chip focal piece was cut at 2-3/4" x 4" and folded to measure 2-3/4" x 2-3/4".  The excess folded part is tucked in behind the Whisper White and taped in place.  It's hidden between the layers for a neater, cleaner look.  Then the next layers were just cut 1/4" smaller. 

After I stamped the images I added the words and then taped the card together.  

The second photo shows how the card looks when it's partially opened.  The left flap is folded in first and then the focal image is folded on top of that.  It's a very simple fold to do, very fun and very different from the usual half fold card!  

Oh, that front layer was done by folding a half sheet of card stock in half and then cutting off 1-1/2" and then cutting the scallop.  You can cut off more or less depending on how you want your card to look.  

Such a fun card to make.  I highly recommend you giving this layout a try for something different to add to your collection of card layouts!!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
