Friend To Friend


Hello and Happy Easter! I hope you all have a blessed day.

Stamp the image in black on the vanilla panel. Color with blender pen, using the ink from the ink pads. Enhance the flower, vase, and table with the glitter pens.

Stamp the sentiment in blue ink on the small vanilla square. Punch it out with the plain circle punch. Punch an apricot scalloped circle. Mount the sentiment on the scalloped circle.


Adhere the metallic paper to the base card, followed by the blue panel. Mount a strip of ribbon across the card, and secure the ends on the back of the card front. Mount the image panel over the blue panel and ribbon.

Loosely tie a bow from the same ribbon and and mount it to the right of the image using glue dots. Mount the sentiment over the bow.

Thanks for stopping by.
