Lovely Friend

Found another challenge blog and decided to enter it for fun.

Fab Friday 187

I liked the sketch and this is my take on it. The die I used is from a Spellbinders label set to which I added some dry embossing once it was cut. Folder used is from Craft Concepts titled In Bloom. PP is from my stash by GKD and I cut the layer and added it to a dark green layer to match the greens in the pp. The stamped image and sentiments are from my current favourite set by SSS called Be Kind and I heat embossed the leaf image with silver. Used Distress Oxides Blueprint Sketch and Mowed Lawn to colour. I die cut several more to glue together for stability and dimension. It was bigger than the card front so once glued to front I cut off the edges. After I had positioned the label I added the die cut leaves on top and then added the sentiment. I had stamped these 2 words together, but didn’t like the width of the white scrap so I ended up fussy cutting until I liked how it looked. I often do this with a sentiment if I am not happy with size. This is a somewhat busy looking card, but somehow it works and I quite like the result.

  1. Thanks Judy – Glad you like it. Right now I’m going through my stash of cards and sorting them into various groups (masculine, feminine etc). Once that is done I shall go through my birthday calendar and prepare each months set which then go into the month files. I can pull out each month and send with less hassle this way and hopefully not forget to mail something. Decided I had better do this as my stash was becoming messy so instead of creating cards I’m sorting and storing.


    1. Thanks dear friend. The sorting is done as are the April birthdays most mailed last night. Got to do the rest now. Glad you like the card.

  2. Very striking design and colors. Once you are done organizing could you stop by my place and help me out? I seem to have a closet that is over-run with seldom used stuff that now I don’t even know what I have any more.

  3. Sure – I can help you with that. It is one of the things I’ve been known for. Always did have an organization bent. Glad you like my card.
