Friends Forever

Good Morning. I have seen some wonderful cards out there using the negative die cut space and decided to join in the fun. The CASE STUDY challenge this week is about using the negative space and this is my entry.
It features two Silhouette designs and a Penny Black Clear Stamp SET Mimi's Many Loves. There are some adorable images in that set. Below is a look at the card when it is opened.

I colored the girls and flowers with copic markers and then used Glossy Accents to give the flowers some dimension and shine. The butterfly is a Martha Stewart punch that was also colored with a copic marker and covered with Glossy Accents.

These are the two Silhouette designs used. The first one is a Nested Hearts Design and the second is a new design Card-Heart Sq. Invites. I chose one of the hearts, un-grouped the 4 invites, deleted the outer edge around one and used the heart border. I centered the heart over the border design and then drew a rectangle around them the size of the entire card. The designs were centered on the half that would make the front of the card. Then let the Silhouette do its magic.

This was a fun card to make and I am looking forward to making more using the negative die cut space.

Thanks for visiting.


  1. That is adorable. I love using the negative space with dies but don't usually think of it with the Silhouette. Those little girls are too cute and the Glossy Accents on the flowers is perfect.

  2. This card is too cute, Debbie! The glossy accents finishes off the flowers beautifully!

  3. This sure is one cute card! Saw over on Flickr! I really love the quaint row of hearts at the bottom!

  4. Way to totally rock the negative space, Debbie! This is fabulous!
