When I saw Kristina’s latest color inspiration challenge (#19), I noticed that the card I had just designed for the Baltimore SCS shoebox swap this weekend came very close. I just needed to switch the Very Vanilla I had used to Whisper White, which I did on the card displayed here.
The front of the Basic Black card was trimmed just half an inch, and a strip of scalloped Whisper White paper was adhered to the back. On the inside, I glued a 1″ strip of Basic Gray card stock on the right hand side.
I stamped the silhouette with Basic Gray ink on Whisper White card stock and used the Wide Oval punch to punch it out. I layered a 2″ x 3″ piece of Bella Rose Designer Series paper on top of Basic Gray card stock and added two black brads at the top. Then I ruffled a piece of Basic Gray ribbon (like I did on my Glowing Butterfly card) and wrapped it around the bottom. I used a few dimensionals behind my oval and adhered everything to the card with more dimensionals. Hope my fellow shoebox swappers will enjoy making this one!
Thanks for stopping by!
