As you know from previous sneak peeks, this set focuses on the the blessing of friendship in oue lives. I made this card for a dear friend whom I use to work with back in Florida. I sent it to her office at work so she would feel special and know that I miss seeing her sweet smile in the office. Just some PTI kraft cardstock, buttons your new Christmas Friends stamp set, and some glitter and voila... beautiful!
I loved using the little barn door to make this card a bit more interesting. This gave me the chance to stamp my sweet little friendship birds on the inside. I used the swirl stamp for the branches and hand drew the leaves.
I made this card for my father-in-law when he was in the hospital this fall. I loved the masculine touch with brown and teal . The swirls in the Christmas Friends stamp set have a fabulous movement to them which makes it easy to create background or pattern papers with them. The sentiment is from my first PTI release: Fall Elegance. I use these sentiments for all sorts of cards!For this card I used a rich brown glitter on the swirls to add depth and to give it a finished look. I like the teal and orange... these colors with the right accents can be used for just about any season! This sentiment is also from the PTI Fall Elegance stamp set.
