Friends Always

The current Crafty Friends Challenge, #8, is to use dry embossing.  I used my Cuttlebug swiss dots embossing folder to emboss the white background card stock panel which I adhered to a piece of yellow card stock.  I edged the two corners of this double panel with some Michaels' double edged stitched ribbon.  I layered 3 Prima flowers and joined them together with a Recollections brad.  I also added two Recollections brad to the main background panel for a bit of embellishment.  The sentiment are single word images from the Say it with Flowers stamp set by Gina K Designs.  I liked how Beate used the words on her card here so I thought I would try it out and add some playfulness to this friend card.  This is a standard size card and I used Papertrey Ink's black card stock for the card base.

Boo's almost Halloween!  Inspired by the current Crafty Friends Challenges, CFC#7, I created this quick card using die cuts from a Halloween scrapbook paper kit.  The fun die cut images have some glittery edges and I backed the circle opening with some black card stock so the boo and ghost would pop.  Also, because of the size of the circle die cut shape, this card turned out to be 5 1/2 x 6 1/8 in size.  I used the Cuttlebug spots and dots embossing folder to create some texture on the orange card stock.  Happy Crafting!
