Great Friend

It's been a while since I've made a Stampin' Up! only card, so I set out to make one this morning. With all the cool tools I've come to rely on, it's a lot harder than one might think not to reach for some Stickles or a Cuttlebug folder or some little rhinestones to bling things up! But, I persevered and now I can say that at least one of the stamp sets in my last order has been inked! Now if I could only find 20 more hours in a day, I might be able to get the rest of the stack inky and still finish all the other things I have to do. LOL!



I started by using the Top Note die in my Big Shot to cut a white and a Baja Breeze Top Note. I then stamped the butterfly from Great Friend in Pretty in Pink and Baja Breeze in the center of the white Top Note, then stamped them again on white cardstock to cut out and pop up on top. Next I stamped the little frame and sentiment from Great Friend in Baja Breeze with the help of my Stamp-a-ma-jig, then cut out, matted on Baja Breeze paper and hand trimmed a little border around it. For a little sparkle I applied glue around the outer edge of the stamped frame and then topped with Dazzling Diamonds. The background paper is from the Walk in the Park DSP collection and I finished off with a little pink taffeta ribbon.
