Stampin' Up! summer silhouettes congratulations card

The Summer Silhouettes floral images are FABULOUS!  And I love the lattice stamp – a lovely design.  I worked really hard to keep this simple!!  I had to refrain from doing just-a-little-more.

I used the same color scheme as I used on the Butterfly friendship card that is now part of the Blog Candy and yet it is totally different.  The colors are Pacific Point, Rich Razzleberry, Wild Wasabi and Sahara Sand. 

Stampin' Up! summer silhouettes congratulations card detail If you look closely you can see the little extra that I did add.  Can you see the little sparkly splashes?  I stamped the very smallest blossom in a random pattern in versamark and then embossed it with Iridescent Ice Stampin’ Emboss Powder.

Also, this card measures 3-3/4″ by 5-1/2″.  I trimmed it a little longer and narrower but it’s still perfect for a standard envelope.  I lined this matching envelope with paper from the Summer Smooches Designer Series Paper.

  •  Stampin’ Dimensionals – I used 11, yes you read that right, I used 11 dimensionals on the back of the front panel.  They make me happy.  For heaven’s sake, you get 300 in that little inexpensive pack of dimensionals, why not use them?
  • Bling – I love the Iridescent Ice Stampin’ Emboss Powder.  It adds glittery goodness to any stamped image!
