Friends are a Gift

Good morning!  Steph here.    It's getting near Christmas and it's time to start those Christmas cards. Friendship and Christmas go hand in hand and there is nothing better than creating a handmade card for a friend. Sometimes the simpler cards make a dramatic impact.

Using JustRite's Friendship Nested Sentiments stamp set, I stamped a sentiment in brown ink, then used Tim Holtz Bundled Sage Distress Ink around the edges. After matting it on brown cardstock, I created a patchwork background using papers from Simple Stories Handmade Holidays.

Each layer of paper was inked with Bundled Sage Ink and matted on brown cardstock before adhering to the card. The sentiment layer was added with Joy Foam Pads as I  wanted it to stand out from the card. Some beautiful
 Christmas green pearls were added to the bottom of the card.

Thanks, Steph!  Christmas will be here before we know it!
