Friendship cards

Happy Friday crafty friends! I was scheduled to go to Alberta for work this weekend and I have to say I am beyond happy that I no longer have to go! Yay, craft room time! I have been making a lot of friendship cards lately for a few reasons: I need to start sending more happy mail and this time of year can be depressing for many and this is such a nice way to uplift someone's spirits :)

I am entering this one in the Simon Says Stamp Flickr Challenge #89 - Friendship Theme.


I started with a snowflake set by Create a Smile - Snowflake Whispers (these are beautiful snowflakes) and I stamped them with Delicata Pink Shimmer Ink and to add some Copic detail with RV52 and RV55 (may as well have pink snowflakes!) I then embossed the snowflakes with Hero Arts Sparkle embossing powder. Hard to see in the pictures, but such a pretty effect. I then die cut a heart from some pattern vellum that was in my stash. I don't usually explore with different or competing patterns but I though this was a sweet look.


I took my favorite Simon Says Stamp Hello die and die cut it from a StickIt, black fun foam and black card stock sandwich and I white embossed the Sweet Friend from the Simon Says Stamp Forever Friends stamp set. I then found some thick pink twine in my stash wound it on the card base and used clear foam tape to mount my heart and added my sentiments. I also used Glossy Accents on the the hello for shiny dimension.

And, of course to top off the project I used Pretty Pink Posh Rose Gold sequins and some pink gems by Studio Katia on top.

Thanks so much for taking the time your comments make my day!
