Ode to Friends …

Hello Stampin’ Friends,

Today I want to share with you a beautiful card made especially for a friend, because some day’s we just want to drop a quick note to say hi.

I began with Whisper White cardstock and embossed a border using the “Framed Tulips” embossing folder.  I chose Pink Pirouette because it speaks softly … like a friend.


I then chose the flower from the “Love & Sympathy” stamp set because I love the way the leaves flow.  I inked up the leaves only with the “Wild Wasabi” marker and stamped my image.

Using the “Petite Petals” punch from the Occasions catalog, I punched my flower.  To get the pretty petals …. place the punched flower in the palm of your hand and press the tip of a pen into the center.  I creates not only the petals, but a perfect center to place your pearl or rhinestone in.  I picked the pearl today.


My “friends” greeting comes from the “Sweet Essentials” stamp set which is now on the retired list, and only the wood mount is still available (Clear is Sold Out).

I hope you enjoyed today’s simple but elegant card, and that it inspired you to connect with a friend.

Have a wonderful day ~
