CAS-ual Friday's Friend Card

Happy Friday everyone!! It is my turn on the CAS-ual Fridays Stamps Blog.

I created a card using mixture of old and new products for my card.

I started this card off by stamping the small flower from the "Pretty Posies" set in Hero Arts "Soft Pool" ink onto a white card base. I then misted Prima "Tea Stain" and "Gold Foil" onto the front of the card.

While the mist was drying, I die cut the word friend using CAS-ual Fridays"Friend" die out of gold glitter paper.

I set the word aside and stamped a sentiment onto vellum using the "Wallflower" set with "Golden Glitz" Delicata pigment ink and then heat embossed it using Ranger's Gold embossing powder.

I then dug through my stash of ready made embellishments and pulled out a tag from We R Memory Keepers and a flower from "Pretty Posies" that was a leftover from a different project.

With all my elements gathered, I was ready to assemble my card.

I took the white card base and adhered it to an A2 card base. I then adhered the tag over the embellished panel.

Next I adhered the vellum panel over the tag. I made sure to use the adhesive under the embossed letters as not to have any of it show through.

I then adhered the "friend" sentiment and used foam adhesive to give the colored flower some dimension. I thought the pool flowers needed a bit more so I glued sequins in the middle of them and then used some Nuvo Crystal Drops in "Caribbean Ocean" over some pieces of the flower.

This card was totally out of what I usually do and I had so much fun creating it. I rarely emboss vellum and using pre-made embellishments on cards is not easy for me. However, I really like how this came out.

I thank you for stopping by today. Have a fabulous weekend!!
