Hello Crafty Friends! Kathy Jo here sharing a friend card using a gorgeous stamp from Quietfire Design's Always be my friend stamp set:
The sentiment was stamped on white card stock using Jet Black Archival Ink. After drying it was die cut using Spellbinders' Labels 50 Decorative Elements. Gold card stock was die cut using the largest die in the same set. Peeled Paint Distress Ink was tapped onto a silicone craft sheet. A water brush was used with the ink to color the leaves on the innermost die.
Peeled Paint Distress Ink was applied to the inside of Spellbinders' Imperial M-Bossabilities folder and spritzed lightly with water. (Ink was applied more heavily to the bottom section of the folder to create an ombre effect.) Watercolor paper was spritzed lightly on one side and embossed using the inked Imperial folder. Gold card was cut to 4.25" x 5.5" and adhered to a white tent fold 4.25" x 5.5" card. The embossed watercolor paper was mounted to the card base as were the die cuts.
For the finishing touch, a triple seam binding bow was added with a wee green twine bow.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
Have a happy, crafty day.
