Friend - Definition

I have another card for the Love Fest Member Challenges going on at Splitcoast. The last challenge is today, but you have until Feb 28th at Noon Central time to upload your creations to Splitcoast to be eligible for the amazing prizes. Seriously...go check it out HERE.

This is for the day 5 Die Crazy challenge. I used several Die-namics in the creation of this card, and just a little stamping.

I started by choosing the stamp set, Own Your Story, from My Favorite Things. Then I picked the patterned papers, Authentique Hope collection. Next I found a sketch, Cardabilities #69. Then I set to work creating. The card base is Whip Cream followed by a layer of Kraft, then patterned paper. I used the Decorative Doily Die-namics to cut out the Snow Cone doily and used the Leaf-Filled Flourish Die-namics to cut out the Whip Cream flourish.

I wanted to use the friend definition stamp and I wanted it to look like it was torn from a notebook, so I used the Insert It - Notebook Paper Die-namics to cut out the the main Kraft panel. Then I stamped the sentiment with Black Licorice Premium Dye Ink, but the panel was a little too long so I placed it back into the die and cut off the bottom in order to shorten it. I stamped the flourish in the top right corner of the sentiment panel and also along the bottom of the base layer using Kraft Premium Dye Ink.

I used the Mini Hybrid Heirloom Rose Die-namics to cut out the patterned paper and create this gorgeous bloom. I added a pearl to the center and a loopy Hemp Cord bow behind it. You'll find my tutorial on how to make a loopy Hemp Cord bow by clicking this link.

On the inside I stamped another sentiment from Own Your Story and added two more flourishes stamped with Sno Cone Premium Dye Ink.

Here are the supplies I used:
