used in true silhouetted fashion. This is how "Sweet Petites" were designed to be used - but of course there are no rules in scrapbooking so they are also used bunches of other ways.
But this, is where the designs start. Simply outlines, a silhouetted image. Check out Anne's and Cat's use of these great "Sweet Petites"...
this little square card by Anne is all done in blues and yellows, the colors of the Navy team. Her stamped and color image of a football probably tells you the theme for this card.
On top of the football image she placed a blue "Ship" Sweet Petite, it's just perfect there! To the corner she tacked a hand cut pennant shape that she personalized with "Go Fight Win!" using the "My Micro" font. The larger font, used to die-cut "GO NAVY" is "Landmark".
If you know anyone in the Navy, imagine how they would love a card like this! The die-cut truly looks like a ship in the Navy's lineup.
Next up is a similar, keep-it-simple, idea from Cat...
Cat created a countryside scene using patterned papers and I LOVE it! Browns for the dirt and road, green for the hills, a pop of color for the vegetation and blue for the sky. What a fun look! Her sentiment is computer generated and die-cut using some nesting ovals, and then all she had to do was drop in the NEW "Bus" Sweet Petite for her focal point. Whoever is heading to Europe - safe travels!
Fabulous examples for using Sweet Petites in their most basic sense - as outline, silhouetted shapes. Thanks Anne and Cat for the great ideas!
