Heartfelt ~ Friendship Card ~ Ink + Inspiration Blog Hop

Hello lovely blog readers and welcome to my blog & thanks for much for visiting.
Today I am participating in a fabulous blog hop with a great group of talented paper crafters.
Today we are sharing those lovey dovey projects!
Valentine's Day isn't a huge thing here in Australia, and I don't so much celebrate it myself - but I just love the cute products that Stampin' Up! designed for us to use.

Today I have chosen to make a cute card, but used a friendship sentiment instead of a Valentine's Day specific sentiment.
I love that Stampin' Up! designs with all crafters from all around the globe in mind.
Don't do Valentines Day? That's ok - this set is very versatile!

Here's a look my finished card. 

To create this card I followed these steps:
  • Cut a card base from Whisper White to your standard card base.
  • Cut a layer 1/8'' smaller from Basic Black to adhere to the Pineapple Punch base.
  • Cut a piece of Thick Whisper White to 1/8'' smaller than your previous layer of Whisper White. I have then taken some Sparkle Glimmer Paper and cut to the same size as my Whisper White layer in width, but only made it 2.5'' in height.
    I then took two patterns from the From My Heart Specialty Designer Series Paper and cut one piece to 3'' in height and the same width as the Whisper White Layer. I have adhered both the Sparkle Glimmer and DSP. I then took a 1/2'' strip of From My Heart DSP and adhered this to where these two pieces join.
  • I have used the Heart Punches from the bundle and cut the scalloped heart from some Flirty Flamingo cardstock and then also punched a heart out using the straight edge heart punch from the From My Heart DSP. On the straight edge heart, I have stamped a sentiment "So lucky to have a friend like you" in Memento Black. Adhere these two hearts together.
  • Take some Whisper White Polka Dot Tulle and tie a large bow as shown and I have adhered this over the top of the 1/2'' strip with Glue Dots. Now adhere your heart over the top of this with Stampin' Dimensionals.
  • To embellish I have added a White Library Clip and some From My Heart Faceted Gems.
  • To decorate the inside, I have added a layer of Basic Black and layer of Whisper White cardstock and stamped a sentiment in Memento Black and a heart in Flirty Flamingo ink.

You can see all the lovely blogs from all the lovely people that took part in the hop here:

Here's a close up where you can see some of the detail of the card.
The Whisper White Polka Dot Tulle is actually probably my favourite ribbon/trim. I just love the soft and subtle texture it gives.

Couldn't be having a naked card, so had to decorate the inside, and who could resist with an adorable sentiment like that?

I hope you enjoyed today's card and got some inspiration to get creating.

Crafty hugs! xx
