Serene Silhouettes in Pink & Black

I have always loved this colour combination (it does have pink in it afterall!!)

This set - Serene Silhouettes - makes it so easy to create a card. The images are very versatile and can be used for anything from Sympathy to Birthday to Anniversary to almost anything!

So here are the first two - the cardstock is Pretty in Pink, Basic Black, and Whisper White.

I also used the new 1/4" stitched grosgrain ribbon in Pretty in Pink and the Fancy Fan Embossing Folder.

The second two cards have a horizontal orientation.

I stamped the sentiments (from Thoughts & Prayers) before I run it through the embossing folder - I was worried it might make it hard to read but it looks great!

The matted shapes on the left card are from the Labels Collection Framelits, the circle is the 2 1/2" Circle Punch. 

The matted shapes on the card on the right are made using the Blossom Punch and the circle was punched with the 1 3/4" Circle Punch.

I wanted something to store the cards in as they will be a gift, and this is one of my favourite choices - it uses only 1 sheet of 8 1/2" x 11" card stock for the base, and holds four cards and envelopes.

The ribbon used to hold it closed is the retired Satin ribbon.

Hope you have sunshine where you live!

Happy Stamping
