Silhouette Hello - Clear Card Class #2


The other day I posted my Shared With A Friend card; the first of three cards I recently taught in a class, and today I am back with the 2nd card we made that day.

Once again we used a clear card base, but this time we used some heat and dry embossing techniques. The red cardstock on the front, which is shiny, was embossed with a folder and the sentiment and silhouette were heat embossed with red powder.

Just the details… (1) After embossing the silhouette image a gem was added to the base of the ponytail, (2) border punched a strip of patterned paper that matched with the paper on the inside of the card, (3) added a trio of gems to the sentiment to tie in with the silhouette image.

Thanks for stopping by and, as always, comments are greatly appreciated!
