Hello, my friends!
Who doesn’t love friendship cards, well I do and I love sending them out everyone loves receiving a little snail mail from a friend.
Today’s creation was created using the Bird Ballard Suite the Free As A Bird stamp set has some gorgeous images of birds florals that you are able to color with any medium of your choice. They coordinate with the Stitch Nested Labels Dies I love this stacking dies so versatile and it’s all the little things on your card that creates such a unique handmade piece that being said the Bird Ballard Trinkets are sweet little antiqued trinkets beautiful to add to any project.
The card base is Very Vanilla measuring 5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″, the next layer is Basic Black measuring 5 1/4″ x 3 3/8″, the stamped layer is a Very Vanilla piece of cardstock measuring 4″ x 3 1/2″. You will also need a scrap piece of Balmy Blue cardstock as well as a few additional Very Vanilla pieces.
- Stamp your Bird, Flower and Leaf images onto the scrap piece of Very Vanilla cardstock using Memento ink, I colored the images in using Stampin Blends markers ( Pool Party, Crumb Cake, Granny Apple Green, Petal Pink, Daffodil Delight). Now cut out these images using your paper snips.
- Now take your Very Vanilla of cardstock measuring 4″ x 3 1/2″ and using a Memento ink randomly stamp the images of the small flowers.
- Using your Stitch Nested Labels Dies cut out the scrap piece of Balmy Blue cardstock. Now using the Memento ink I stamped the sentiment to the right-hand upper quadrant of this label, the sentiment I used from this set is “your friendship means the world to me”.
- To the left side of the Stitch Label, I glue down the Leaf image then added the little Flower popped up on a dimensional I tucked the Bird behind it, also popped up on a dimensional. Add a little Linen Thread around the label to attach the sweet trinket from the Bird Ballard Trinkets, using dimensionals I add this label to the center of the stamped Very Vanilla layer. Glue these layers on to your Basic Black cardstock that attaches to your card base, now your card is completely ready to mail to your special friend!
