Clean and Simple Eiffel Tower Silhouette

This Eiffel Tower stamp from the Stampin’ Up!’s Artistic Etchings stamp set and the Basic Gray paper from the Twitterpated Designer Series Paper makes a great silhouette.  I stamped the Eiffel Tower on the back of the paper and cut it out carefully with Paper Snips.  Looks intricate, but easy to do with these great scissors.

This is not your traditional card size.  I started with a 6″x6″ square of Whisper White card stock folded in half for the card base for a 3″x6″ card.

Can you see the pattern on the Summer Starfruit card stock?  The crown and key images were stamped with VersaMark ink to create that pattern.

I punched the Primrose Petals oval with the Extra-Large Oval Punch to create the background for the silhouette.  I picked the color combination from the Color Coach – a great tool for creative color choices.
