Pocket Silhouettes

Good morning! The weekend is finally here!! Last night I got to spend some time stamping with some really good friends, Sherry and Becky! Sherry brought her new stamp set, designer paper and punch. She let me use it, so I have some cards to show that don't use the Best Wishes & More stamp set! Aren't you excited? These cards will be coming this next week. The stamp set, designer paper and punch are bundled as a special from Stampin' Up!. I think that they will be available for customer order after the first of December (need to look that one up). Anyway, it's a bundle that I am going to order this morning! The stamp set is valentine and the punch is a set of three different sized hearts that match a stamp from the set. The paper has reds, pinks and browns in it. LOVE it!!

But now back to the present card... I really love how this card turned out. VERY simple. I found a sketch that I wanted to try and this set seemed to fit just right. I wanted the Not Quite Navy to be my base card but if you know me at all, you know that I don't like my brads (or ribbon) to show on the other side of the card. So, to remedy that I made the inside card a "tad" smaller to cover up the back side of my brads. I'm sure that has been thought up by much more clever people than I but I thought that I was brilliant! Have a great weekend and thanks for stopping by!

  1. This is so pretty! I don't like my brads or ribbon to show either, so I think your idea is brilliant!
