Silhouettes

Hi Everyone, my card today is for
http://themaleroomchallengeblog.blogspot.co.uk/2017/10/challenge-72-silhouettes.html
The Male Room is a great place to go to for "Male" themed cards, would love to see you there, my Team mates have the most incredible and very clever cards to show you.

I had so many ideas for this I couldn't make my mind stay on one idea, so looked through my Silhouette Library files and found this window blind, I have used it before HERE. As it's coming up to panic time for Christmas cards, I decided to make one. I think the younger boys in the family will appreciate this, I hope!

My silhouettes are Santa and the blind. I left the blind loose apart from the top of course. LOL. I added 3D gloss to the moon and Stickles to the tree.

background - I used a photo of mine of the moon, taken on 6th October 
window blinds - Silhouette store
Santa and reindeer - Gina Cabrera
tree - mysticmorning
background paper - Antebellum @ Pixelscrapper

This is awesome! Love the idea of the blind in front of the window like that! How cool! Love how the blind is also skew whiff!! Wish it was a die as my untouched Silhouette is still in the box!!

Lisa Lynn said...

I really love this card, Faith! It's such a brilliant take on the silhouette challenge and I love the addition of the blinds - it really makes the whole scene so believable! I'm very excited to be joining you on the design team!

Oh, and thank you for joining us at the Watercooler Wednesday Challenge :D

I look at this card and can just imagine someone having snuck to the window and peeked out. Of course the window blinds would be askew as that same someone quickly pulled back in surprise at the sight which had been revealed to him/her. I love the way it's simply all about looking out through that window and the fun silhouette of Santa and his sleigh, Faith. This is simple, fun, and oh, so cleverly done. Thanks so much for joining our Watercooler Wednesday Challenge this week.

Mia said...

Beautiful card, Faith. I love that you used your own photo as a background. Great stamps, too. Kisses, my friend.

Carol L said...

You are too clever!! I've never seen a card quite like this, but it's fabulous! And using your own photo makes it even more special! Love those blinds!!!

Nana Connie said...

That blind is such a fantastic touch, Faith! WOW on that whole window and the Santa silhouette is marvelous.

Hetty said...

Ha-Ha- this is cute! Never seen a framelit of a mini-blind! Nice! Thanks for joining us this week at Watercooler Wednesday for our Christmas challenge!

Penny Hanuszak said...

Such a great card! Love the blind die and will be searching for that one, I'm sure. Your scene is so really I can envision the children curled up in bed hoping to catch a glimpse of Santa as he flies by. But of course they're asleep when he does. Thanks so much for sharing your wonderful card on our Watercooler Wednesday challenge this week Faith. Loved it!
