I loved the sketches for these cards. Card making is always a challenge for me, but with a good sketch, the possibilities are endless! I stuck pretty closely to each sketch for these cards, but was still able to add my own twist to each one. 

For the first card, I really wanted to bring in some colors to express a sense of warmth. I picked out several pieces of paper in autumn hues and layered them onto a white cardstock background and stitched them in place. I stamped out the words “friends” and “best” from the Best of Friends Stamp in green and gray inks and used the Metal Die to cut them out. I adhered these words down and then added three small flowers stamped out with the Best of Friends Add-on Stamp and placed them below my sentiment. I used sparkly gold glue to fill in the center of my flowers.

For my second card, I again used the wood grain patterned paper as my background and stamped out the word “friend” from the Best of Friends Add-on Stamp five times with different ink colors. I layered these vertically down the left side of my card before stamping a smaller sentiment and using the banner die from the Best of Friends Metal Die to cut it out. This was layered in between the “friend” sentiments. I stamped out two hearts and die cut them before placing on my card. Lastly, I accented with gold sparkly enamel dots. 

I can’t wait to see how you will use these brand new Best of Friends stamps and dies! These great products can be used in multiple ways. Thanks for stopping by!
