Simon Says Stamp | Floral Friendship Card. Video

Hello and welcome back for another Yippee For Yana video! If you live in a warmer climate, you probably enjoy beautiful greenery outside all year round. But if you are like me, and live in one of the colder parts of the world, chances are, by now you are dreaming of Spring, double digit temperatures (if you are using Celsius system) or above 60 degrees Fahrenheit weather and some nice greenery and flowers.

Since Spring won’t be getting to my neck of the woods for another few weeks I’m browsing for Spring online and trying to recreate it in my handmade card. Today I’m bringing you a simple to make floral Friendship card.

CARD DETAILS

I started working on my card by creating a background using Quilted Hearts background stamp, White Satin Pearl embossing powder and light blue cardstock.

Next, I stamped “Friend” from the Bestiest stamp set from CZ. I used Cloudy Sky ink on white cardstock. I added “Thank You For Being My” in black ink and trimmed latter into a skinny strip with a V-shape at the end. The word “Friend” was die-cut using coordinating die.

I also stamped a few images from the Moments of Grace stamp set in Intense Black ink on white paper. I used this specific ink as I planned to color these with my Copic markers and this ink will not blend when it comes in contact with alcohol.

I used YG03 and YG17 markers to color greenery on this card. For the flowers, I went with RV11, RV10, RV00 and RV13 markers. Using coordinating dies I cut these images out.

Next, I trimmed my background panel to 3 7/8 x 5 ⅛” and foam mounted it onto an A2 white side folding card base. I foam mounted the word “Friend” and added florals all around it.

I couldn’t resist adding a few embellishments – an enamel heat and some sequins from the Girls Best Friend sequin mix.

Have fun stamping!
