When I saw THIS card by Karen Varley, a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator in England, I knew I had to have Beautiful Friendship. I’d been resisting it for weeks, trying to tell myself I had enough flower stamps, but it was not to be. My version is very similar:
- Stamps: Beautiful Friendship
- Color Palette: Whisper White, Highland Heather, Gorgeous Grape, Pear Pizazz, Old Olive
- Accessories: Stitched Rectangle dies, Old Olive linen thread (retired, but color yours with a Stampin’ Blend), Stampin’ Dimensionals
I pierced a couple of holes in the Stitched Rectangle shape and threaded the linen thread through to tie the bow. I don’t like glue dots for this purpose, because the bow comes off. It’s one of my fussy bits.
I chose to make the floral images more dominant on the page, and I used a sticky note to mask the flowers so that the leaves would peep out from behind them. Other than that, this is a pretty simple card that you could mass produce for a variety of uses: congratulations, thank you, birthday, even a sympathy card.
