Friendship Card

I have a friend who’s been going through a rough patch and while a card isn’t going to fix everything, it’s my small way of hopefully brightening her day and letting her know I’m there for her.

Edamame

I went to my stash and chose die cuts from K and Co’s “Edamame” collection as my focal. I also had the adhesive scrapbook borders from the same collection.

The damask print background paper is from Recollections. I layered it onto a 5x7 card cut from heavy white card stock, then dry embossed a smaller white panel using my Cuttlebug and a Tim Holtz “Fancy Florals” Texture Fade embossing folder:

Dry Embossing

The large floral die already had a bit of glitter on it so I layered smaller dies in the center, added a self adhesive rhinestone, and added more glitter using iridescent Stickles:

Used a couple more dies from the pack and a coordinating scrapbook border to finish up the card.

Absolutely beautiful, Carol! I love the color and patterns on the flowers and butterfly and the way you so artfully put them together (as always).
