My Friend

This card was created for the SCCSC91 Sketch Challenge on Stampin’ Connection. Take a look:

Stamps: My Friend, Simply Soft
Card Stock: Marina Mist, Whisper White
DSP: Letters to Santa
Ink: Black Stazon, Marina Mist
Markers: Bashful Blue, Marina Mist, Island Indigo, Lucky Limeade, Always Artichoke
Accessories: Beautiful Wings Sizzlit, 5/8” Bashful Blue Satin ribbon, Mini Glue Dots, Rhinestones, Stampin’ Sponge

Here is the sketch that was created by Liz Goldhawk:

The card base is Marina Mist card stock cut at 4-1/4” x 11” and scored at 5-1/2”. A piece of Whisper White card stock was cut at 2-1/4” x 5”. The greeting from My Friend was stamped in the bottom right corner in Marina Mist ink. The flowers from Simply Soft were stamped five times across the top of the card stock in Black Stazon ink.

The flowers were colored in with Bashful Blue, Marina Mist, Island Indigo, Lucky Limeade, and Always Artichoke markers and the White gel pen. A piece of 5/8” Bashful Blue Satin ribbon was wrapped around the card stock and tied into a knot. This panel was adhered to the right side of the card front.

Then four pieces of Letters to Santa DSP were cut at 1-3/8” x 1-3/8” and adhered in a row right next to the Whisper White panel. One of my pieces wasn’t cut quite right so I ended up having to trim about 1/8” off of the bottom square after it was adhered to the card front. A butterfly was cut from a scrap piece of Whisper White cardstock in the Beautiful Wings Sizzlit. The edges were sponged with Marina Mist ink and it was adhered onto the card front with a Mini Glue Dot. Three small rhinestones were added to create the butterfly body.
