Inkling: silhouette dress cards

Back in August, I made note cards that featured little black dresses. I cut out each dress using black cardstock and glued them onto a white note card. I called them the LBD (little black dress) note cards.


I decided it was time to update the collection. The new cards are seasonal skirts.

Just like the LBD cards, I drew a template and cut out each skirt and top. With the skirts, I used images of fabric and printed them onto white card stock first. The winter formal skirt is pink satin, the spring mini skirt is a lime green and white cotton, the summer sarong is a red hibiscus print and the fall pleated skirt is a wool plaid.

Inkling: lbd note cards

Silhouettes are popping up everywhere. I wanted to try to make one but I think it takes a certain skill set to cut out a profile of someone’s face. I decided I needed to start with something a little more basic for my silhouette attempt and what could be more basic than a little black dress or lbd.


To make these silhouette note cards, I first sketched the dresses on cardstock. Once I was satisfied I cut them out. Then I traced around each dress template onto black cardstock. I cut out my dresses (like paper dolls) and glued them onto white cardstock.



The best part of the silhouette little black dress note card is that one size fits all.
