Friends Forever Freebie Card




Hi all! I hope that you are having or have had a wonderful weekend!! I know the sun was shining here all weekend and it couldn't have come at a better time - all this rain has been giving me cabin fever!!

So for this weeks card I wanted to do something that I could just put into my card box for future use. The kit that I used is Cora's Best Friend, a kit by Snowflake Beach Designs which is available for purchase here at GDS.

For this card I did some of my own embelleshing using some ribbon that I bought at our local Dollar Tree - I LOVE the scrapbooking supplies that they offer and you can't touch the price at any of the other scrapbooking retailers. It's a simple and inexpensive way to spruce up a single layer image to make it look a bit more hand-made:)


I also used some of this 3-d foam to use to put under the flower to give it some additional depth. I dont' like my cards to look flat so I tend to use this foam on at least one portion or element on the card. As you can see I have long since run out of dots and am now using the remaining foam around the circles. I hate throwing anything away and this is definitely a good way to get the depth that you need without breaking the bank.




I have for download today the full 8 1/2 by 11 sheet with all of the elements already put on and ready to print and cut. You can use the ribbon that is included or use your own to give it that extra little touch.

The flower still looked a bit flat to me so I used my fingers to just roll the top edge to form a semi circle and just crumpled it a bit...I think it totally brings out the flower now!
