Friendship Is a Million Things

Happy Sunday! Hope everyone is having a great weekend! It's HOT here but I did get some garden work done yesterday. My tomatoes are lookin' good :)

Today I have a card using
Clearly Sentimental About Friendship, recently released by MFT. I’m also using How Does Your Garden Grow for the flowers and stems.


I had this idea to stamp the sentiment on vellum and place it over the flower stems. It took me forever to find an ink that would stamp a nice clear impression but dry in my lifetime! Finally, I found that Palette Noir Black worked best. OK, so first I cut the vellum with one of the ribbon dies from the First Place Award Ribbon Die-namics set then stamped the sentiment. I was originally going to stitch across the ends to attach it but I got a little too close on the left end so I simply ran a line with a Quickie Glue Pen on each end and stuck it down. It really only shows if you look REAL close. I added some “grass” with the  new Large Simply Scallops Die-namics die and otherwise left it pretty CAS.

Really simple inside, with another sentiment from the set and another flower from How Does Your Garden Grow.




OK, that’s it for me today! Thanks so much for stopping by! See you  back tomorrow!
