My Courageous Friend

Hi there!

I decided that it was time to do another clean and simple floral card.  I haven’t done one of these in a while but I have a friend going through a hard time so I decided that this style would be perfect for her.  Sweet, simple, and heartfelt.  

I used an older die set for this card – I love that the Altenew classic florals never go out of style!

To put this card together, I die cut all the pieces and then ink-blended the different layers before putting the flower, stem, and leaves together with liquid glue.

I created my background by die cutting a smaller, stitched, rectangle and then splattered it with some black acrylic paint.

While the paint splatters dried, I stamped and heat embossed the sentiment using black pigment ink and clear embossing powder.

I assembled the entire card, popping the smaller rectangle up with foam adhesive and placing it in the lower right corner for a bit of interest.  I added on the poppy, popped up the sentiment with more foam adhesive, and accented with just a few black enamel domed dots.

I just love how this card turned out and I hope you like it too!  Let me know your thoughts in the comments!

Have a wonderfully creative day, everyone!

I love to make cards and enjoy trying out new techniques and products. My artistic “style” differs almost daily – it just depends on what I’m making, the look I’m going for, who the intended recipient is, and, well, sometimes just the mood I’m in.



Beach Party!


Happy Beer Day!
