My Friend Card:



Using the USA stamp pad, I inked white cardstock until it was completely covered.  This tri-color ink pad is perfect for creating very unique backgrounds.  Using the Rollagraph Simple Dots Wheel and Strawberry Ink, I then inked across the background providing another design element.



Maraschino Twine was wrapped around the card and "fanned" out on the right side.  Maraschino and Denim Twine were used to tie the Twine together on the left side.  The sentiment was stamped in Stawberry Ink as was the underlying stamp.  These 2 pieces as well as cardstock were then die cut with Sizzix dies and mounted on the card front with foam adhesives.

Clearsnap supplies:
Ink: Stephanie Barnard Strawberry Ink; Colorbox Limited Edition Made in USA Pigment Ink
Rollagraph: Simple Dots

Other Supplies:
