Sweet friends, popping in to say hello. Just a note, the tu-tu went in the mail and I’m working diligently on a tutorial for you. Today I’m back to roses and want to share a spectacular sentiment about the sweetness of friendship. This was sent to me by a dear friend last year and I came across it while shifting some supplies in my room. No time like the present, I decided I would put it off no longer and sat down to fiddle away with a card. The Sweetness of Friendship sentiment is from Flourishes and the rose paper is from ByDigital – the oval is Flower Labels, and the background is Elegant Paper. (Keep in mind I tend to shrink and enlarge papers to suit my need.) I cut my plain oval using Spellbinders® Grand Ovals and stacked it on top of a cream panel cut with Spellbinders® Opulent Ovals. For the next layer I chose Spellbinders® Timeless Rectangles.
So to recap, here are the particulars from the bottom up – cardbase 5″ tall x 7.25″ wide, foam tape (optional), matting layer 4-1/2″ x 6-7/8″, design paper layer 4- 3/8″ x 6-3/4″, foam tape (optional), Timeless Rectangles, foam tape (optional), matting layer 3-1/8″ x 4-3/4″, design paper layer 3″ x 4-5/8″, foam tape (optional), Opulent Ovals, foam tape (optional), Grand Ovals #1. To make this on your own, you only need to cut and stack!
Whew, that seems like a lot of foam tape, right? I love the depth and dimension it brings to a card but for sure it can be overdone. I use a very thin 1/16″ foam tape but this card looks just fine without the tape. More and more I get emails to identify the items I’ve used. The stars and moon aligned and I had everything right where I needed it – I hope you’ll give it a try :-)
