Soft Silhouettes

A sketch is always a great place to start to get your kreative juices flowin'. This card was inspired by this weeks Splitcoaststampers Sketch Challenge 238 (every Wednesday a new sketch is revealed if you need a little boost of kreativity).
* Soft Suede kreates my standard card base 5-1/2" x 4-1/4" folded at the top.
* A piece of Very Vanilla cardstock, cut approx 1/8" smaller, is run through the Big Shot with the new Perfect Details Texturz Plate
* An image from the Pocket Silhouettes set was inked out in Choc Chip Craft ink and stamped onto Very Vanilla three times and then covered with Clear Embossing Powder and using my heat tool to give it that embossed, shiny, raised look.
* Each image was punched out with the Scallop Square Punch
* The images were popped up on dimensionals on a Soft Suede panel
* 2 brads from the Neutrals Assortment were added to the end of the panel which was then layered onto the Very Vanilla.
* Adhered a little faux bow and piece of Soft Suede ribbon to the top of my Soft Suede panel
* My 'thank you' comes from the set Thank You Kindly, inked in Choc Chip Craft and again heat embossed with Clear Embossing Powder

I really like how soft this simple color combo turned out. Whatcha think? Leave me a comment and let me know - love it when ya do :)
