Hello Sweet Friend

“Hello Sweet Friend”

We all have that one friend, you know the one, well this card is dedicated to Jen …
This idea is case’d from a recent blog/video post by France Martin aka Frenchie entitled “Lattice Die inside the Framelits Window”.

I used the ‘Rock “n” Roll” technique to create the peacock like colour on the flowers.
First, stamp the flower onto the “Coastal Cabana” ink pad, then with the darker colour, this time I used “Not Quite Navy”, roll the edge of the stamp around the ink pad, thus the “Rock ‘n’ Roll” technique is created!
I always use a lighter colour, then the darker colour, as I do not want to transfer ink from a darker pad to a lighter pad.
I have stamped and punched 3 flowers, then sponged with Crumb Cake, layered, and Braded.   The Brad is hidden under the handmade flower.
To make the flower, knead 2 drops of “Coastal Cabana” ink into a pinch of “Simply Pressed Clay”.  Sprinkle some Dazzling Diamonds in, then press into the “Buttons and Blossoms Simply Pressed Clay Molds”.  I always make in advance, as the Buttons and Blossoms need a couple of hours to air dry, or 10 minutes in the freezer.
Use the “Labels Collection” Framelits to create the window in the Basic Black cardstock, and then layer 2 of the Framelits to create the border around the outside of the window, cut from Whisper White, use a Stick On Note to keep in place.
Cut the “Lattice” in Whisper White and adhere behind the window, and then adhere the border on top of the window.
The words are stamped in “Not Quite Navy” then punched using the side of the “Decorative Label” punch, and then punched again using the opposite side. This is a quick and non-expensive way of making a smaller shape. The words and are then sponged with “Crumb Cake” and lifted by using Dimensionals.
I have “anchored” the card by using a Candy Dot on the bottom right of the card.
