Hello My Friend

Here is the final February Make and Take card. This one was inspired by the card in the Sale-A-Bration catalog. But I stepped it up and added a few more details...

  • Crumb Cake Cardstock 5-1/2" x 8-1/2", scored at 4-1/4"
  • Crushed Curry Cardstock 3-1/2" x 4" 
  • Crumb Cake Cardstock 3" x 3-1/2"
  • Ink: Crumb Cake, Versamark, Early Espresso, Crushed Curry
  • Accessories: It's My Party Designer Washi Tape, Deco Labels Framelits, Embossing Buddy, Heat Tool, White Embossing Powder, Stampin' Dimensionals

First off fold the Crumb Cake cardstock on the score line. Then stamp the Hardwood Background image onto the card front in Crumb Cake ink. Next add a strip of It's My Party Designer Washi tape onto the bottom of the card front. 

Next take the small piece of Crumb Cake cardstock and rub the embossing buddy over the entire piece. Stamp the "hello" image from Hello onto the cardstock in Versamark ink. Cover the stamped image with White embossing powder and tap off the excess. Heat the embossing powder with the Heat Tool until it's shiny and smooth. 

Stamp the "my friend" greeting just under "hello" in Early Espresso ink. Then use the second from smallest Deco Labels Framelit with the Big Shot to cut out the label. Stamp the sun image just above "hello" in Crushed Curry ink. 

Use the third from smallest Deco Labels Framelit with the Big Shot to cut a label from the Crushed Curry cardstock. Use glue stick to adhere the two labels together then use Stampin' Dimensionals to adhere the layered labels onto the card front.

That's it! Now I'm off to craft something else, or work on homework... or more likely doing chores. But hopefully I can squeeze in some craft room time this weekend!
