{Thank You...For Being My Friend}


I took the time to do a little stamping tonight...and it was so much fun! I used my Hero Arts Doodle Leaf Flower, and stamped it twice with Turquoise pigment ink on patterned paper from My Mind's Eye Front Porch Collection. I embossed with JudiKins detail clear embossing powder, then cut each of them out. Because they didn't have much body, I adhered them to turquoise cardstock, then cut out again so they have a tiny edge showing all the way around. Since they now had some body I could shape the leaves a little bit and use foam tape to give them dimension. The center of the flowers is cut from the orange background paper.

For the background, I tore the paper and adhered it to a turquoise note card, then distressed the edges with turquoise ink.


The sentiment is also from Hero Arts. It is called My Friend . I stamped it on orange Bazzill cardstock then embossed and distressed it using turquoise ink.

The oval holders on each side of the sentiment are punched using oval punches, then cut in half. I used a flower brad in each side to hold the sentiment in place.

This was a really fun card to make...sort of out of my comfort zone because of the colors and style. But maybe that's what made it so much fun?

I have a few orders to package tonight before turning in, so I'm making this short.

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you have a happy Friday!

WOW!!! This one is GORGEOUS!! Love the colors and how you shaped the petals to stand out from the card. FANTASTIC card! Now, I've got to go check out your eBay store as I see you listed more CB folders and Marvy punches. Darn you anyway! :)
