Summer Silhouettes

I am now getting a little tired of these short dark days!
To cheer me up I decided to do a bright cheerful card.
On visiting some of you Crafty bloggers this morning I came across
which inspired me to make these cards.

I cut a template using the Circles Collection Framelits,
Then ink-dusted various colours across the aperture.
I used Perfect Plum, Melon Mambo, Pacific Point and Pool Party.
I then stamped the various elements from Summer Silhouettes in Black
The first card I then cut out and layered on a larger Black circle
and the second card I left square and matted onto a larger Black square.
These were then stuck onto the printed card.
(The Sentiments have been computer generated onto the 6"x6" base card.)
I couldn't decide which layout I liked the best - what do you think?


  1. I'm fed up with these dark day to Kate love both cards but i think the 2nd stands out more to me Hugs Sandra xx

  2. Gorgeous cards Kate, I like the top one best, the black circle layer really sets the image off perfectly. Great job, Judith xx

  3. Beautiful, I too visited Judith's blog and loved them, I have to agree with Judith the top one just "pops" with the black outline, love the colours xx
