Natural Silhouettes

Hello Crafty Friends and Happy Sunday!  I hope your weekend is going well and you're rested enough to face the coming week.  I have a quick share today featuring a silhouette image that has been heat embossed.

Using the Gina K. Designs Natural Silhouettes Stamp set, I've created a quick and easy Card of Encouragement for a dear friend.

To start, I've cut random sized strips of colored card snippets in Autumn colors, then glued to another lightweight piece of scrap card (I cannot bring myself to throw out scrap card - colored or white).  I stamped the image and sentiment, then heat embossed using fine detail Gold powder from Ranger.

I've popped the panel on craft foam and adhered to a Kraft card base.  Lastly, I've added gold sequins and called it complete.  I did add a panel of vanilla card to the inside and stamped the same silhouette image onto it using brown ink.  This gives me a brighter place to write my message, and the card base isn't as heavy as I tend to use, so the added panel inside gives the card a nice weight.

This was a quick and easy card to create and a great way to use up those snippets of colored card, which I have loads of (what about you?).  

Until next time, Happy Crafting!
