Stampin' Up! Silhouette Adventure Card


Hi and welcome!  I am so excited about today's card.  It uses Stampin' Up!'s Silhouette Scenes stamps and Sweet Silhouette Dies.  Unfortunately, both stamp set and dies are retiring next week, or when supplies are sold out.  In fact, it looks like the dies are already gone.  However, the stamp set is still available in both English and French. 

This card was inspired by a couple of cards on p. 174 of the 2018-2019 Annual Stampin' Up! Catalog  I was flipping through last week.  There was a pretty cool alphabet die set in that catalog that made a similar pattern to this one.  

I used Stampin' Up!'s Stitched Rectangle Dies to create these shapes 👇 for my card.  Using the 3rd largest die, I cut random sized cardstock, making sure each was at least 4" long. I tried to somewhat center the corner of the die before running it through the Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine.  Then, I moved the die down a little, tried to keep it centered, and ran it through again.  (The first and last pieces I only ran through once.)

Once the pieces were cut, I arranged them on a 3" x 6" piece of Basic White cardstock, then glued them down.  Once the glue dried, I cut off the excess with my Paper Trimmer. 

The silhouette of the boy was stamped in Basic Gray on the front of the card, as well as inside the card. 

Card Base ~ 6-1/2" x 6-1/4", scored at 3-1/4"
Basic White ~ (2) 6" x 3"
6 colors of scraps, most measuring at least 4"
Basic Gray scrap big enough for die cut sentiment, flowers, etc

I hope you enjoyed this card!  Please contact me if you have any questions, for a catalog (if you don't have a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator and live in the USA), or to Join!  You can also click the link above to sign up for my newsletter.
