ID: ECD - Friends - Those Rare People card
size: 5"w x 7"h

Created: July 10, 2015

Elizabeth Craft Designs  (ECD) has been licensed to make dies of Suzanne Cannon's (Quietfire Design ) calligraphy. I received my sample dies yesterday and couldn't wait to use them BIG GRIN. These dies will start being available around the end of July 2015. Today's card uses "Friends" - my favorite word...

The other dies, embossing folders, Peel offs, glitter & sticky tape, are all products from ECD. The rubber stamp quotes are by Quietfire Design  

("Friends Are Those...");


I die cut my word from a piece of decorated 140# Arches watercolor paper I had in my scrap drawer. It has streaks of blue's and yellow's with some nice hard edges in it... Cut the word again from a dark blue heavy textured cardstock. Layered the two together off set to create a shadow.

Die cut the "Berry Branch" from Distress inked cardstock in green's.

Die cut the flowers "Bunch of Flowers 1" from the watercolor decorated paper. Tooled them to get some shape. Layered two together and added an iridescent blue pearl to their centers.

Die cut the butterfly in black for the filigree piece and from blue Iris Shimmer Sheetz. Adhered the filigree to the under body with double sided tape. Added the  little body colored with a yellow colored pencil.

Stamped the quote (minus the words "Friend's are") using Distress "Broken China" on the decorated watercolor paper and clear embossed. Used a 3" circle punch to cut it out. Used an x-acto knife to cut some slits for my Sari ribbon to pass through.

Cut a piece of yellowish beige textured cardstock a bit smaller than my card front and started assembling my elements. The ribbon circle with the ribbons adhered to the back. Then the word "Friends", then the berry branch and the flowers. and lastly the butterfly.
