Sunny Silhouettes

Hi everyone! Happy Thursday! It's release day over at the Digichick and the start of a huge sale. Now through November 8, everything at the Digichick Boutique is 35% off (except grab bags). Wow! And there are so many gorgeous new kits and papers that just released!



My project for today uses the Silhouette Box template from Kelleigh's November Grab Bag, as well as some papers from the gorgeous High of 75 kit by Sugarplum Paperie. These papers are so beautiful I printed them out and just stared for a little bit!


For the box, I clipped the paper to the template, added some more paper and an element in the extra space and printed on an 8.5 x 11 piece of cardstock. Then I just cut, scored and assembled. I cut a small label from the extra paper I had printed in the margins and then stamped the Hello Sunshine sentiment from Artful Elegance. This is matted on barely banana cardstock cut with the Labels 8 Nestabilities and tied to the box with some gold edged ribbon. For the top closure, I just added a few beads and some prima flowers to a hat pin and stuck through the top to keep everything closed.


For the card, I used the scrap from what I cut the small label from as my main background, then layered onto barely banana cardstock. I cut out the it's the little things tag that I had printed out, then added a little ensemble of primas, ribbon, a button and some gold card. Then I finished off with a trio of pearls and some stardust stickles.
