Sparkly Flaky Friends



Wow! I never realized how hard it is to come up with a name for each post. As you can tell, I'm not very good at it. But I appreciate you taking a chance and reading the post anyway. lol

This card is going to be used for an upcoming class on heat embossing with a group that is fairly new to stamping, so I wanted to keep it kind of simple. I stamped Flaky Friends in Chocolate Chip on my Very Vanilla card base and then colored it in using chalks and a blender pen. I then used my Versamark pen on a few of the colored items and heat embossed it using Iridescent Ice. I used the Cerise DSP for the bottom half of the card and a strip of the reverse side for the faux ribbon strip. I used the corner rounder and then sponged the edges all the way around in red. For the sentiment I stamped it in Chocolate Chip and punched it out using the small tag punch, sponged the edges in Real Red and then used the Versamark pen and Iridescent Ice embossing powder. Then I layered it on Real Red punched out with the Large Tag Punch.

On another note, I have recently seen some beautiful cards using the SU! retired set Heavenly Peace and now I'm on a mission to obtain it. If you have it and would be willing to sell or trade, contact me at my email meredithcrary@yahoo.com.

Have a great day! Thanks for Stopping By!
