Creative Nugget: The embossed stripes were cut with a Circle Cutter, stitched to a Layered Lacey Oval, and mounted onto the sponged and splattered stripes to make the background for the frangipani flowers from a new stamp set called Sweet as Perfume by Our Daily Bread Designs. The sentiment was embossed, cut with one of the Oval Dies, and mounted to one of the Ornate Ovals. Ribbon, metallic thread, and colored rhinestones were added to finish the card.
Since friends are such a sweet blessing in our lives, whether they are close by or far away, this card was created for all of my very dear forever friends!
Creative Nugget: The coneflower from the Forever Friends stamp set was randomly white embossed on a piece of Mixed Media paper and watercolored. A Leafy Edged Border Die was used to create a curvy border for the pretty Cozy Quilt paper. A frame was cut using the Lavish Layers Die and a Double Stitched Rectangle Die. Distress inks were used to water color the white embossed coneflower. Layered Lacy Oval Dies were used to cut and mat the embossed sentiment panel. Crinkly heated ribbon was used to make the bow.
