World Card Making Day - Kathryn's Blog Hop Amazing Silhouettes

To celebrate World Card Making Day, I decide to host a Blog Hop of Stampin' Up! Demonstrators from All Around the World to share a card that they have made and then I have challenged them to post it within a week to someone special - as we sometimes forget to send them and they just gather in a box.

I have decided to ink up the Amazing Silhouettes stamp set for the first time.  This set is a reverse image to most stamps with the image being left in this case white with the surrounding area highlighted with ink.

This is a Faux Centre Step Card, I received the tutorial from South Australian Stampin' Up! Demonstrator, Diane Furniss.  I looks amazing but it really is not as complicated as it looks - it's just a few pieces of cardstock folded and glued together to make the structure of the card.

For my centre and side panels I used my sponge daubers direct to the rubber stamp in three shades of green - Parakeet Party, Pear Pizzazz and Mossy Meadow.  Don't forget to "huff" the rubber stamp before putting the rubber to the Basic White cardstock to make it a little moist.  After adhering the stamped Basic White cardstock to the Parakeet Party, I added a sentiment and a few lovely Brushed Brass Butterflies.

Stamp Set:  Amazing Silhouettes
Cardstock:  Parakeet Party, Basic White
Ink:  Parakeet Party, Pear Pizzazz, Mossy Meadow
Accessories:  Cut 'n Emboss Machine, Potted Succulents Dies, Sponge Daubers, Brushed Brass Butterflies

A back/side view of the card, 
there is really only 2 pieces of cardstock that make up this fancy fold card.
