Flowers in Silhouette

Well it was Christmas at my house today! My newest box of SU goodies came. What all did I get?...more like what DIDN'T I get! haha I was super excited to use the eyelet punch and some of my new paper. I also got everything for my May workshops, so look for those projects within the next week or so.

This card was really easy to make and I'm really pleased with the outcome. I used the Flowers in Silhouette as well as the Great Friend (for the sentiment) Stamp Sets...both of which I got FREE! The Flowers in Silhouette is from the Get Connected Promotion and the Great Friend I got for getting a recruit during Sale-A-Bration! Gotta love SU! It's also hard to tell from this picture, but the corners of the Whisper White are pierced in a "photo corner" sort of way.

Stamps: Flowers in Silhouette, Great Friend
Ink: Bashful Blue, Basic Gray
Paper: Basic Gray, Bashful Blue, Barely Banana, Whisper White Cardstock
Accessories: Eyelet Punch, Twine, Paper Piercer 

1. Score 4 1/4 x 11 piece of Basic Gray cardstock at 5 1/2 and fold on score line.
2. Use eyelet punch on 5 1/4 x 4 piece of Barely Banana and adhere to Basic Gray.
3. Place 5 x 3 1/8 piece of Bashful Blue on top of Barely Banana.
4. Lightly sponge Bashful Blue ink over a 4 3/4 x 2 7/8 piece of Whisper White. Stamp Flowers in Silhouette stamp in Basic Gray, stamping twice before re-inking. Stamp the sentiment from Great Friend in the corner. 
5. Using your paper piercer, pierce 3 holes 1/8 of an inch apart going across and down to form "photo corners" --sorry you can't see this well in the picture.
6. Cut two pieces of twine 6 inches and wrap around Whisper White. Tie a smaller piece around the two.
7. Adhere Whisper White to Bashful Blue. 
8. The inside of the card has a 4 x 5 1/4 piece of Bashful Blue.
