Silhouette Silhouettes!!!!!!

Good Afternoon!!!!

I love silhouettes,,,,,,people,,,animals,,,,,things,,,,,

I love cutting them out of dark card stock and I often cut a bunch out of black card stock and then grab them when I want a quick card,,,,,,or a quick element to add to a card,,,,,,,

And NOTHING cuts silhouettes better than,,,,,,,,,,,well,,,,,,a Silhouette!!!!!

Today I have two cards to share,,,,easy, quick cards!

This first card is another Christmas card to add to my stash so I'll be ready for Christmas,,,,,,and it was OH so easy,,,,,,,,

I grabbed a couple silhouettes I had cut a day or two earlier and glued and pop dotted them down!  Piece of cake!  To make the snowy hills, I simply drew wavy lines in Studio and edited the points! Once cut, I embossed them with a polka dot embossing folder. Easy peasy!  I saved the file so I can cut them quickly,,,,,,,,,,and done up in blue paper, they'd make pretty water too!

Card Recipe:
Paper: MME Noel pack, Recollections
Die cuts: Silhouette America onine store and my own design
Ribbon: Really Reasonable Ribbon and Walmart
Pearls: Recollections
button: my stash

This second card was a bit more involved,,,,,but oh so much fun!

I just love the pop of apple green and the sparkly button!!!!

Card Recipe:
Papers: MME Lost and Found Two Rosy pack, Recollections, GA Pacific, Coordinations
