Friends are a gift

This is my recent post for Classy Cards and Such.

It's getting near Christmas and it's time to start those Christmas cards. Since Friendship and Christmas go hand in hand, there is nothing better than creating a hand made 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.

All items can be purchased in the Store.
Thanks for stopping by today.
