Silhouette Poppies

I spent most of the weekend in my craft room, making cards to send to my wonderful daughter. She is more than halfway through her basic training for the Coast Guard and we have been trying to send her at least one card every day...which means that my stash is seriously depleted!

I've also been trying to use up what I have...including some card bases that I purchased long, long ago. They are made of quite flimsy cardstock, which is why I have not been using them...but I had the brilliant (if long in coming) idea to line them with cardstock and voila! they are usable!

This card was made very simply...stamp the image and sentiment in white ink, emboss with white powder, then add a white ribbon.

I'm entering this card at Gingerloft Challenges - Silhouettes
and at Opus Gluei - Red Hot

Card Supplies:
  • card~unknown
  • stamp~HeroArts,Inkadinkado
  • ink~stampabilities

  1. This is lovely. I am sure that those cards you are sending to your Coast Guardian are WELL loved. Sometimes it's those little things that keep us hanging on.

    Thanks so much for playing along with us at OPUS GLUEI.

  2. Lovely cas card. Thanks for joining us at Gingerloft Challenge. Hope to see you again.


  3. This is so pretty! Sometimes simple is the most elegant, I think. Thanks for playing with us at Opus Gluei!!

  4. This is really stunning! I love the white sentiment on the red. I never seem to get my sentiments that neat... great job!
    I love this red on red. GORGEOUS!
    Thank you for sharing your talent with us over at the Opus Gluei!

  5. this is just the reverse embossing on the flowers...awesome! Thanks for joining in the red hot challenge with the Opus Gluei this week!

  6. Love a beautiful clean and simple card, and this one is going to make your daughter very happy. What makes me smile about this is that I have a friend going through a health issue and I've been sending cards one after the other and have depleted what seemed like a huge stash. AND I think I may have bought the same kind of card bases, because I think they need bolstering too! (They came as a box of assorted colors but the same kind of thin cardstock, but they are a good basis to start creating)

    Good luck with your card making and I'm sure they are making your daughter's Coast Guard training much easier knowing she's supported at home!

    Thanks so much for sharing with us at Opus Gluei!
