Shabby Chic Friendship Card

“Hello Sweet Friend”

At my “Create With Kathe” Craft Class last week, we made this sweet little friendship card.
‘Tis all about layering with a Shabby Chic vibe.
Pink Pirouette cardstock is layered up in 3 layers, with the Lattice Bigz Die being a feature.
I cut 1 ½ Lattice’s and the join is hidden under the ribbon and sentiment detail.
The sentiment “hello SWEET FRIEND” is from the “Six-Sided Sampler” stamp set, and is stamped in Chocolate Chip onto Whisper White cardstock, and then sponged with Crumb Cake.
I just had to break out the Stampin’ Up! “Flower Trim” (R), it came with 100 gorgeous flowers that can be used as is, or coloured by Spritzing or sponging colour onto the flower.   This is the very first time I have used my Flower Trim and they are like gold!   For this card I used 1 flower, for the whole class we used another 3, so that means I have 96 left!!!
I have tied a strand of “Early Espresso” Bakers Twin around a cute little bow of “Artichoke” Denim Jean Ribbon.   The vintage lace is from a scrap I had leftover from a previous project.
Inside the card, I have used another Lattice and ¼’ed it by folding along the crease lines.
I have then adhered the Lattice on two of the edges to the middle of the card, and then made a gizzlion butterflies with the “Beautiful Wings Embosslits” in Whisper White and Pink Pirouette, and adhered the butterflies to the lattice, to create a look as if the butterflies, when the card is opened, are jumping off of the card!
On a piece of Whisper White cardstock, I have stamped in Chocolate Chip the sentiment “love life & it will love you back” from the “Cottage Garden” stamp set.
On the bottom edge of the insert, I have finished off by stamping in Crumb Cake some cute little Pansy’s from the “Flower Shop” stamp set.
