Elegant Silhouette Card


Hi Everyone

Michelle here from Lady of Leisure Ink, as always Pam thank you so much for having me here.  I want to share a special 'one off' Christmas card for a good friend of mine, she also happens to be the breeder of my dog and you will soon see why it is a 'one off' card.

I am in love with silhouettes, especially all the Christmas ones that have been appearing in the Silhouette online store.  This week I bought the silhouette of the lady carrying parcels and walking her dog.  I knew that my friend would love it too, but I wanted to make it personal and change the dog silhouette to that of my own breed (which happens to be a vizsla.)  Here is my card.


 I just love how elegant these silhouettes look, and I especially love the little details like the buttons on the coat, and the ribbons on the back of her hat.


Of course what make it extra special for both my friend and me is the vizsla.



I used the Cameo to cut out the letters for my sentiment, the font is called Tall Deco.  A little tip here: I used the negative to help me position the letters, made it so simple.


A simple card with an elegant colour scheme of black, white, burgundy and silver - I hope she loves it as much as I do.

Thanks for stopping by today.

Michelle
