Today I am using the third and last stamp from the Amazing Silhouettes Bundle.  It is a beautiful tree, and if you peruse Pinterest or other websites to look for ideas, you may have noticed that this stamp from the set seems to be receiving the most love -- or use.

I wanted to try to make a winter thank you card.  As I mentioned on Monday, I need to refill my stash of thank you cards, and I just love how simple these Amazing Thanks Dies are to use.

To make this card I stamped the tree on Pearlescent Specialty Paper with VersaMark Ink.  Have you seen this Pearlescent Paper?  It is a beautiful winter white paper with a soft pearly sheen.  After stamping with the VersaMark, I heat embossed with silver embossing powder and then fussy cut the tree.  To make the tree look like it was shining in a dark moonlit sky, I mounted the tree on Night of Navy cardstock with dimensionals.  The Night of Navy was then mounted on another panel of the Pearlescent Specialty Paper.

The sky background was created with Beauty of the Earth Designer Series Paper.  Does it get any simpler than that?

The sentiment was die cut with the Amazing Thanks Dies in Night of Navy and Pearlescent Specialty Paper.

To continue the  pearlescent design theme, I added several little white pearls around the Night of Navy panel to draw the eye even more to the beautiful silver tree silhouette.

And what about the inside...

It's simple, but not forgotten.  A simple strip of the same sky DSP from Beauty of the Earth is set off with a Night of Navy border, but it leaves plenty of room to add a handwritten "Thank You".

Even though this is a simple and straightforward card to make, it makes me happy when I find a card I like and the creator has provided dimensional information.  So, if you like this card and would like the cutting dimensions, they are provided on this FREE TUTORIAL.
