Summer silhouettes card how to

Hello! I hope that this finds you well. Today I am going to show you how to make a card with one of my favorite stamp sets, Summer Silhouettes.

Card Recipe:
Stamp Set - Summer Silhouettes
Paper - Pool Party & Whisper White
Accessories - Pool Party 3/8 ruffled ribbon  1 3/8 Circle Punch
Ink Pads: Primrose Petals, Gumball Green, Calypso Coral & Pool Party

This is a very simple card to create and as we are using a 1 3/8 circle punch, it can cover any goofs that you make in stamping. To begin, cut your whisper white card stock slightly smaller than the card base.  Stamp the green leaves twice - once on the bottom of the whisper white and once at the top, slightly towards the middle.   Take the small five petal flower and stamp with primrose petals on the stalk part of the leaves.  Take the long stem and stamp once beside the leaves that you created. Stamp the four petal flower onto the stem.

Get a scrap of white paper that is large enough to punch with the circle punch. Stamp your Get Well sentiment in Calypso Coral. Using the five petal stamp, stamp in pool party around the sentiment. I placed one more flower for contrast in Primrose Petal.  Punch the image out centered on your sentiment. Adhere with stampin' dimensionals and tie a knot with your favorite ribbon. Easy peasy!

This is utilizing the retired in colors yet it is very easy to create this card with the current in colors. There are two current in colors to choose from. You would only need to substitute Primrose Petals & Gumball Green for another color. The two color combinations that come to mind are Strawberry Slush & Mossy Meadow or Hello Honey and Mossy Meadow. I think that I will go create that right now!
