This gorgeous silhouette stamped birthday card is so fast and easy and is super eye catching!
Today we have this fabulous silhouette stamped birthday card that lets the bold, black images really pop against the beautiful bright splatters. And abstract card like this is the perfect go-to for any card design and on a birthday card it gives just enough visual motion to feel festive.
Let’s take a look at how Ricky put this together for us so we can experiment at home!
Using our Watercolor Splatter Stamp set, Ricky stamped shades of Color Fuse Ink from Sets #5 and #6 onto a piece of white card stock cut to card panel size. Ricky says “Be sure to overlap some colors!” The organic shapes of the splatters and their overlapping help create that visual movement that offers so much impact.
Now Ricky used the flower and foliage stamps from our Wonderful Wishes stamp set and stamped them with black ink over his splatters. PRO TIP: This is the perfect time to use your stamp positioner tool – getting that solid graphic bold black image all colored in evenly is a key to the striking look of this type of silhouette design. Using a stamp positioner means you can restamp the image again getting that even coverage.
For his sentiment, Ricky stamped some words from our Build a Phrase set with Versamark onto scraps of black card stock and heat embossed them with white powder. He trimmed down his words closely and arranged them at jaunty angles on the card, adhering them with foam tape.
You can see how the white letters on the black card stock floating over the colorful splatters, the black stamping and the white background all help to echo that beautiful balance of brights and black and white.
Ricky then adhered his stamped panel to a piece of black card stock cut to add a narrow border and then popped the whole thing onto a white card base.
We adore the look of this silhouette stamped birthday card design and have spent quite a bit of time chatting while packing orders about what other color combos would be knockouts. What do you think – which colors would you use first with this striking design?
