For my Friends

I love this card, I needed a card for a dear friends birthday and I wanted it to be striking, and quick cause I do tend to do things at the last minute!!

I love the way the Basic black, Real Red, Sahara Sand and Whisper white work together for this.

I loved this card so much I made another for my sister for Valentines day.

This was a quick card to make;

  • I just stamped the Floral stamp on to Basic Black card stock with the White Craft ink. Put that aside to dry for a while.

  • I used my paper piercer and mat pack to punch the holes around the Real red card, I used my black journaler to do the Faux stitching around the Whisper white card.

  • I then used my large oval punch to punch out my 5 petals from my Real Red and one from the already stamped Basic Black.

  • I used a white gel pen to do the Faux stitching here and then just stuck it all together with dimensionals.

This is a card you could use for any occasion and with almost any color combination.

Would make a good male card too, we all know how hard they are to do!

I love the colours you've chosen. I might have to invest in an oval punch.
