A Really Bright Friends Never Fade Card

Stampin' Up! Friends Never Fade Stamp Set


This Friends Never Fade card is Bright!

On a rainy day like we are experiencing here today, some colour is appreciated. And I am loving the colours in the new Brights Collection. Definitely a current favourite!

I designed this card around this patterned paper from the Greenhouse Garden designer series paper. This particular paper highlights Real Red, Pumpkin Pie and Pear Pizzazz. So, I coloured the coordinating image from the Friends Never Fade stamp set in the same colours. After colouring the image with markers, I huffed on the image to re-moisten and stamped onto the Whisper White cardstock.

Next, I added the "thanks" image from Thank You Kindly in Real Red below the flower. I thought the curlicue on the greeting worked well with this flower.

All that was left is to embellish – I layered Pumpkin Pie grosgrain ribbon over Real Red satin ribbon and added three Pumpkin Pie buttons with Real Red "thread".

This card is a little brighter than most but on a day like today stamping such bright colours was a great escape form the dreary weather. Enjoy!

    This is a great way to use that stamp set. I love the bright and cheery colours! I think the weather is changing, it is promising sunshine and warmth for the rest of the week here in Fort St. John, BC. Keep the faith!
