For today’s shoebox swap at Fort Meade I decided to make a card using the Silhouette tutorial in the December 2010 edition of the Technique Junkie Newsletter. I figured coloring the flowers with a black marker would speed things up so that the Baltimore Ravens fans in our midst could leave the swap in time for the playoff game kickoff!
I’ve always thought silhouettes and oval panels go together very well, so I stamped the image on an oval die-cut of patterned paper and matted with a black scalloped oval. The Friends Are Forever set contains several sentiments that all fit inside the large oval SU! punch, so my fellow stampers could pick a different one if they wanted to.
Thanks for stopping by!
