Silhouette in Chocolate Chip

Here's the second greeting card we made at Sandy's class Friday.  The Easter Blossoms set is one of my favorites, so I loved making this!

It's a gatefold card, so it opens in the center instead of at the side or bottom.  And it uses lots of designer paper.  I love the Elegant Soireé paper!  Here's the front –

The only thing I wish I had done differently is to add the vanilla word window punched "for you" to the other side of the designer paper.  This way looks ok, though, and, who knows?  The other side may have overwhelmed the sentiment.

We stamped the image of the girl and branch in Chocolate Chip on a die cut Very Vanilla scallop.  I stamped her flowers again on a scrap and cut it out for her basket so she wouldn't have a basket of brown eggs.  Not that there's anything wrong with brown eggs; they're actually quite good.  But I think I have enough Easter cards for right now, so opted for brown flowers.

The inside is fun!  It has a little scallop envelope with a pull out message.

If you want, you can put a gift card in the envelope instead or along with the "happy birthday" pull out.

I used spackle on a card today!  I'll finish it up and show it later next week.

Thanks for stopping by!
