Word Art Week ~ To A Great Friend

Hi everyone,

Thanks for stopping by and for all your wonderful comments. I'm honored to have you here and I truly appreciate each of you more than you know!

I love creating cards or a project where the sentiment is the star and for the last few weeks I've had Word Art Wednesday posts. When I looked at the stamp sets that I'd not used, I thought that two of them, both FREE from Sale-A-Bration if you spend over ­£45, would combine really well to take it up a level and so this week I bring you Word Art Week!

For today's card I've used two of the sentiments from the Simply Wonderful stamp set from Stampin' Up and combined it with one of my favorite techniques and a new favorite die set too...

Card: Whisper White
Ink: Blushing Bride and Versamark
Stamp set: Simply Wonderful
Tools: Labels Collection Framelits, White Stampin Emboss Powder, Corner Rounder, Stamping Sponges

Stamp the "to a great friend" sentiment from Simply Wondeful in Versamark onto Whisper White card and heat emboss with White EP. Leave to cool.
Cut and score the base card and round the corners. Cut the next layer ¼" smaller than the base, round the corners and ink the edges with Blushing Bride ink. Stamp the flower from the set in the corners. Attach panel to base card.
Cut the embossed piece with one of the Labels Collection framelits and sponge with Blushing Bride ink. Stamp the "you're the best" in Blushing Bride ink. Pop panel onto the card with Stampin' Dimensionals.
