Let’s face it we all have friends that know too much about us, all the more reason to keep them close right? Here is what looks like an everyday shabby chic card until you read the sentiment. It was put together using KI Memories 6x6 Pad and the LOL Hampton Art stamp set.
We Will Always Be Friends card by Patty Folchert
Start with a cream color card base and add the center panel mat leaving the border edge. Then using a coordinating paper add the center strip panel after distressing the edges. Then add a plain cardstock color center stripe with distressed edges, on top of it add a banner piece of patterned paper in a contrast color also with distressed edges. Using a scalloped circle punch, punch out five scalloped circles in coordinating papers. Spray the circles lightly with water and crumple up, then flatten out and allow to dry. Once dry layer them together and insert a brad through the center of all of them and flatten the back to hold flower together.
Manipulate layers by crumpling and folding to achieve the 3D flower look and then a flower center to cover the brad. Next stamp the sentiment from the LOL stamp set onto plain cardstock cocoa color in brown ink, fussy cut it out and attach 3D foam dots to each end allowing center to arch up to add dimension.
