Hybrid Card Freebie

Hi ladies! I hope that you all had a great weekend - I know that I did:)
Today I have a hybrid card for you. As you probably recall me saying I like to make cards - I don't need a specific reason I just make them and as the need arises I check into my stash. Well I wanted to get a card for a friend who is having some home owner issues but when I looked in my card box there were NO friend cards!! I couldn't believe it - it has been some time since I replenished the box:)
So that brings me to todays card. It is just simply states "friend". This is good for any occasion really - just a small note to let them know that you are thinking about them.

Now I have had my share of homeownership issues - water tank, washer, roof, leaks, windows, bugs, floods...and if someone had just sent me a card to tell me to keep my chin up I would have been grateful. Think about that special someone who mught need a little "pick-me-up".

I used Distressed Ink in a tea stain color but you could use any stamp ink I would think. I have a TON of ink pads and they work perfectly for this effect. I simply run the edges of the card around the stamp pad - you can do as little or as much as you would like. I trimmed the inner portion of the card with the ink as well and I think it gives the card great depth. Try it!! Black inks work great on the edges of almost anything to just give them that little extra pop.
