Framed Silhouette Card

I love the simplicity of this card. I made it a little smaller than a regular card so there wouldn't be too much "white space". The finished size is 3-1/2" x 5-1/2". And it features one of my favorite new stamp sets, Pocket Silhouettes.

To make the teeny tiny frame, I used the 3/4" square punch on a scrap piece of cardstock and then punched the Scallop Square punch around it.

Then, I stamped the flowers on a piece of white cardstock and punched it with the 1-1/4" Circle Punch. This circle fits perfectly behind the frame!

I used the same pieces to make this card with a different layout:

I couldn't decide which one I liked best...though I'm leaning toward the first one because I just love the Scallop Edge Punch!

Supplies: Pocket Silhouettes stamp set, Junior Varsity DSP, Rose Red ink & cardstock, Old Olive cardstock, Bashful Blue cardstock, Whisper White cardstock, 1-1/4" Circle Punch, 3/4" Square Punch, Scallop Square Punch, Scallop Edge Punch, Old Olive grosgrain ribbon, 1/8" Hole Punch, Stampin' Dimensionals

I like the simplicity of these cards. Not too over whelming for someone who's never stamped before.

Great job!
