Celebrate Friends

Beginning today, the Penny Black Blog will be featuring “All Occasion” cards.  Over the next ten days, there will be great ideas for making cards that can be used anytime during the year!

I created a “friendship” card for the event.

The summer sun card base was stamped with Circular Design in Habanero VersaFine ink with an added bit of distressing around the edges.

The fussy cut mice are from The Touch of Love transparent set.  The flag was created by combining the banner from Halloween Treats with the word “friends” from the True Friends verse.

Tip/Hint:  Stamp “friends” from the wood block stamp first and then stamp the banner.  With the banner being an acrylic stamp, it is easy to view the sentiment through the stamp and acrylic block for quick alignment.

The elements are elevated on a Spellbinders’ Label Eighteen die cut which was shaded with a jumbo sponge dauber and Majestic Blue VersaFine ink.

Thank you for YOUR friendship!
