I’m glad I’m not in a spelling bee and my word is Silhouettes – I would get it wrong every time – I always have to look it up.  Today’s card is a swap I received at the STARZ meeting this month.  It was created by my friend Cindy – her blog is here.  She is also featuring the swaps and projects from the STARZ meeting right now – I’ll be posting some of the same creations that she already has up.

I was going to use Cindy’s card for my class yesterday but I already had all the projects I needed so I didn’t have room for more.  I could make another Birds and Butterflies class because there are so many stamp sets that I didn’t even use that feature birds and butterflies.

She used one of my favorite little stamp sets – Pocket Silhouettes.  The set itself doesn’t have birds or butterflies but she added some die-cut butterflies to the card so it would have fit my theme.  I would not have put these colors together but they are great!  Soft Suede, Regal Rose and So Saffron.

And notice on the bottom it is ruffled lace.  Using the Eyelet Border punch she punched a piece of So Saffron card stock and then ran it through the crimper to create ruffles.  When you do this make sure you start with a piece that is longer than what you want the finished piece to be.  Running it through the crimper causes a “shrink” effect.

I love the card Cindy!  Thanks for sharing it.
