This Friends 24-7 card uses very simple paper piecing to highlight the bird.
I stamped the image twice – first in Early Espresso and then in Baja Breeze. The Early Espresso image was layered onto Baja Breeze and Early Espresso cardstocks. I cut out the bird from the Baja Breeze stamped piece and added it above the Early Espresso image with dimensionals.
To make the card, I stamped in Baja Breeze ink onto Baja Breeze cardstock with the Sanded background stamp. I added an Early Espresso greeting in the lower right corner. Above this I added a piece of Baja Breeze patterned paper from the Greenhouse Gala designer series paper package.
Finally, I added a length of Early Espresso 5/8" grosgrain ribbon across the seam where the two paper meet. I tied a bow of Early Espresso ribbon and added it by the stamped image to finish the card.
