This clean & simple “adventure” card was really not so simple. I like how it turned out, but this was my third attempt.

I don’t want to put scary thoughts in your head, so I’ll write the instructions, minus my errors.

Cut the card base from 8 1/2 X 11 Thick Whisper White Cardstock, score at 4 1/4. From the other half, cut a card front layer 4 X 5 1/4.

Cut a piece of See A Silhouette Designer Series Paper (bright red and yellow) a spec smaller than 4 X 5 1/4, so the edges won’t show.


Make the vertical lines with a Swirly Frames stamp, leaving a space for the word, “adventure.” Use Memento Black Ink and the Stamparatus, so your lines will be straight.


Use the “adventure” die from the Sweet  Silhouettes Die Set to cut the word from the card front. Save the five, tiny pieces to fill in the letters.

 At the same time, you can cut the circle, using a Layering Circles Die. Position the circle die (second to smallest) a bit over the edge.


Glue the card front to the red/yellow DSP, using tiny dots of glue around the letters, so they won’t lift. 

Remember the five, tiny pieces? I filled in the letters, but you don’t have to, because “adventure” is still legible.

In case you’re wondering, the inside says, “Go confidently in the direction of your dreams-Thoreau.,” which is in the Silhouette Scenes stamp set.” It comes in a bundle with the Sweet Silhouettes Die Set. Sorry, I forgot to put in in my Product List.


CAS(E) this sketch was my inspiration for today’s card.


If you choose to recreate this card, hopefully my instructions will help you get it right the first time. This card was definitely an “adventure!” The good news is, the Product List is very short!

As always, I appreciate you visiting. Thank you!
