Silhouette Christmas

     Lately, I'm finding myself really intrigued with silhouette images.  I did a couple of Halloween cards with them and now I've found this delightful set from MHK Designs just in time for Christmas.  I love the way Mynn has reversed the positive and negative on the silhouette!  The sentiment is also from that same set.


     This is a pretty CAS design.  I chalked the background before printing the image and then used an eraser to remove some of the chalk from the white silhouettes.  I added a button snowflake and made a 3-D poinsettia for the corner.  I also found a pinecone shank button, removed the shank, and added it next to the poinsettia.  Done!  The whole thing took less than 25 minutes, including making the flower.

     Countdown to Thanksgiving is on in my family and Christmas follows so quickly thereafter I can hardly believe it.  This year, I'll be spending time with my oldest grandson and his family so that means getting to spend Christmas with the great-grands for the first time ever.  :-D  I'm really looking forward to that.  Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie

Oh Connie, this Christmas will be wonderful for you! You'll have so much fun with the family. Know you're looking forward to that.

Love this card and the silhouettes look wonderful in the white instead of black! So pretty! That little snowflake in the corner is so precious too.

Very nice card and I love silhouettes myself! But alas these silhouettes are digital stamps and the Vintage Stamping Challenge srules state that the main element must be hand stamped. Clear stamps, rubber, foam... but no digis.
