Bah! Humbug! Challenge --- Silhouettes

This week's challenge over at Bah! Humbug! is silhouettes.  Very interesting -- and a spelling quiz in the bargain!  At first I was stumped for ideas, although the DT at BH has some very clever ones.  Thank goodness I reorganized all my stamps last week and remembered seeing a set of clear stamps from Inkadinkadoo. 

I stamped the images with embossing ink and used Stampendous Opaque White embossing powder.  Easy peasy!!  A quick tie of the gorgeous snowflake ribbon and voila!  Done!  The card is 5 x 7 inches and is green speckled card stock.  I know I should do the inside at the same time, but being pressed for time that will have to wait.  I might do more of these, too, and I can do all the liners at once. 

Thanks for stopping by today.  I'm sure that with the temperatures climbing to summer levels it is a bit hard to think of Christmas.  Making Christmas cards --- what a fun way to cool off!  Come December I'll have a pile of cards all ready to go.  So, if you haven't joined the fun at Bah! Humbug!, what's stopping you?

Hi Barb,
I also have that stamp set and the detail is fabulous isn't it? The white against the dark green is stunning and that lovely white ribbon looks positively perfect. Thank you for being so loyal to our challenges - it is always much appreciated.
