Flap Fold Silhouette

The TLC Challenge on Splitcoaststampers this week is to create something with silhouettes. Well......... I only have a million silhouette stamps here, so of course I had to play with this challenge. LOL

I wanted to create one of the cards from the Fancy Folds and Motion CD (this CD is available at I Brake for Stamps - click HERE), and the Flap Fold card looked like the perfect one to combine with silhouettes. I pulled out the Stampinbak silhouettes that I bought from I Brake for Stamps and formulated a plan.

I picked the Floral Silhouette Bouquet and stamped it with blue ink onto some patterned paper. Then I stamped it again with Versamark onto a coordinating patterned paper and brushed it with some shimmmery blue chalk. Cutting the cardstock took longer than stamping and adhering this card together, so it was a nice quick project. And because I didn't add any embellishments, this card will be easy to mail! Gotta love that! :-) Now who should I mail this card to?? Any ideas??

By the way - type in "silhouettes" in the search box and you will see some more gorgeous floral silhouettes from IBFS. Love em!
