The cards I am going to share with you, are cards I made with a few special friends in mind. These are the friends that I have called on in the early am or middle of the night without fear of reprimand. Friends that I know have a true heart and greater understanding of what it takes to be a friend (thoughtfulness, caring, willing to make those scrafices, knows when to express sympathy and empathy) through all the ups and downs of a relationship. I can't be thankful enough for this kind of friend which are few and very seldom encountered. So this time its all about the "Friendships."
Both cards are 5 x 7 and were based on a sketch from Becky Fleck's "Scrapbook Page Maps" that I purchased a while back when Borders went out of business where I live.
The flourishes are cut from Marianne "Fanciful Flourish" die and ribbon and buttons are all from Recollections.
I inked the edges with both Walnut Stain and Vintage Photo distress inks.
The DP is felt and very soft to the touch which made the card very personal. I like the way they both turned out, although I like the inside of the first one best and the front of the second one best. Figure that one out if you can. (smiles)
I am entering this card in the following challenges:
Challenges 4 Everybody - Challenge# 8 Anything Goes ( Dec 7th)
The Corrosive Challenge - #163 Anything Goes (Dec 6th)
Joanna Sheen Challenge - Anything Goes Excluding Christmas (Dec 6th)
Craft Punked - Week 47 Best Friends
Emergency Crafters - Anything Goes
Stamp 'n' Doodle - Anything Goes
Sassy Studio - Dare to be Sassy "Felt or Fabric"
The sentiment is a stamp I picked up at the Scrapbook convention and I have no clue what company it is from.
I finished the inside using the same DP and since the paper was a light tan I didn't think I needed to add anything for a personal message.
