Beautiful Friend

Hi there

Today I'm popping by to share a card I recently made for my very best friend for her special birthday.  I love her dearly so I thought Valentine's Day was a great day to post this - Awwwwww haha :)



I started by creating a blend of Distress Inks from the centre of the card base and then spritzed some water into my hand before flicking some drops onto it to remove the colour.  I then stamped and die cut a selection of flowers and leaves by WPlus9.  I stamped and embossed 'friend' in silver before die-cutting with its co-ordinating die.  The rest of the sentiment was simply stamped onto a strip of white cardstock in black.  All the elements were then arranged and adhered, some on 3D foam to add dimension.  A few glazed gemstones were added to finish.

Materials used:

  • Stamps and Dies: WPlus9 - Fresh Cut Florals; Clearly Besotted - Sugar & Spice
  • Ink: Distress Ink: Picked Raspberry, Dusty Concord, Spun Sugar; Versa Color, Versafine and VersaMark
  • Embossing Powder: Wow! - Metallic Silver
  • Gemstones from stash

That's all from me today, Happy Valentine's Day everyone xx
