Another Stem silhouette card ... dressing it up and dressing it down.

I made a stepped up version of our stem silhouettes card ... that I showed you on Tuesday this week.
I've used the same stampset, Stem silhouettes with similar colours (including Melon Mambo) on a Going Grey cardstock base.
I extended the polka dot background down a bit further so I had room to tie my kiwi kiss silk ribbon bow and added the happy birthday on a Lots of tags sponged frame.
This 'tag' is made using a die cut from the BIG SHOT machine.
  ...  and here is a stepped - down version of the same card.
Which means I simply turned it into an almost one layer card (OK it's a two... maybe 3 layer card) but who's counting? It has less layers right?
Just to show what a variety of cards you can get from the same layout, stampset and colours.

I have to give credit for the layout of this card to Elizabeth B a fellow demonstrator who makes some lovely cards. Isn't it just the most simple gorgous card? and you could make it with other stampsets so easily too.


  1. Hi Nerida, I love what you have done for this card, I love pocket silhouettes, it is so versatile.

  2. Love this card. Thanks for the inspiration!
