Closing the Summer? Wait.......


It is so soon for that, but it appears that there is nothing that can be done about it. Summer never really arrive this year in Wisconsin, and we are about to close it already. To say good bye to summer, what better than the Summer Silhouette stamp set to do so?

It did not need much to make this card a showcase. The sketch is from the Pals Paper Arts challenge 217. I used the new Filigree Frame TIEF on the Wisteria Wonder layer and I love it.

Tips & Tricks:
  • The Summer Silhouette stamp were placed randomly to fill most of the Very Vanilla layer. 
  • The little sentiment was stamped in Wisteria wonder, punch out using the 3/4" Circle punch and than a Basic Black piece was punched out using the 7/8" scalloped circle punch.
  • I usually cut the top layer a bit smaller, but I wanted a very thin edge and therefore cut teh top layer only 1/8" smaller than the base.
