Graduate Card

Sometime last week, while spreading some love, I came across another challenge blog and I was really inspired with the beautiful DT Cards which were made using silhouette images. This reminded me of a silhouette stamp I had, which I had never used and having to do a card this week for a friend who has just graduated, I quickly decided to try it out.

Not my usual style, as I'm all the time colouring with my Promarkers, but I loved doing this card. The DPs are from the Papermania Capsule Collection Paper Pack and the sentiment is computer generated. For the image I printed the stamp on paper and while holding it on a black card, I cut round it, so then I popped it up with some foam.

The challenges:
1 - Incy Wincy Desgins Challenge No 39 - BLACK, WHITE + 1 colour
2 - Kaboodle Challenge No 29 - EMBOSSING

Thanks for looking.
