A Summer Silhouettes Birthday

I forget about this fun set.  When I think of using a Silhouettes set I usually think of the Serene Silhouettes set.  As I was looking in the catalog to see what set I could use along with the Vanilla Flower Trim I saw the Summer Silhouettes set and thought I would give it a try and see if it works.  And it did!  And I still have Vanilla flowers left.  LOTS.  So I may just make up a bunch of cards like this (using scrap decorative paper and retired card stock) and make Mother's Day cards for next years spring garage sale.  I don't think I would just sit down and make cards specifically for the sale though.  I think I would make two like this card and because I needed a birthday card I went with the birthday card and I also cut another set of papers for a Mother's Day card.  I usually have cards for sale in my workroom and at the end of the "season" I will take the whole box and put it in the garage sale just to get rid of them so I can start a new box!!! 
It's never ending, is it?  LOL  But it is a great way to make the cards go away!!!  They all usually sell at the garage sale.  People get cards at a great price and I get rid of the cards so I can start again!!  I think the people are getting use to buying cards here and that's a GREAT thing.  

So we know I used the Summer Silhouettes set to make this card.  I only used the stem image and I stamped it Wild Wasabi.  The flowers were colored using the Primrose Petals ink pad.  I just ran the tips of them across the pad.  I left them in a long strip, though I did cut off the number of them I needed so I didn't get ink on the remaining ones.  Then I cut them apart.  I set them in place using Glue Dots.  

The base of the card is Primrose Petals. I had not used that color before and I do like it.  It's not one of my favorite but I don't dislike it.  And the only other color card stock I used was a scrap piece of Wild Wasabi on top of the scalloped circle.  I set the scalloped piece in place using Dimensionals.  

This was a very easy card to make and I did have fun doing it.  It also went together quickly too.  I like the looks of cards that go together nicely and also quickly but don't have the look of being done fast.  

Thank you ever SO much for visiting today,
