ID: MC Dec/15 - ECD Love You - To Love - Friendship card
size: 5"w x 7"h 

Created: December 20, 2015

An Elizabeth Craft Designs "A Way With Words" dies (Love) (You) designed by Suzanne Cannon 

And I'm using the Caps alphabet die set from El's available on Elizabeth Craft Designs - "Alphabet Caps"

I came across a neat technique using Glad "Press 'n Seal" Freezer sealable wrap to help adhere bunches of small die cuts... In this case I placed my text block letters onto my card, pressed down a piece of the Press'n Seal, lifted it up and all my letters were temporarily stuck to the freezer wrap. Applied glue to the letters and then pressed it back down on my card front, adjusting any letter that moved a bit. Voila Easy Peasy BIG GRIN

I'm also using the "Friendship" quote from Quietfire Design  

("Friendship Isn't a Big Thing...");


Side folded my blue textured card.

I had a bunch of Color Burst decorated papers sprinkled with Schminke gold powder and Coarse Cosher Salt technique on 90# watercolor paper, so die cut a bunch of letters to create my text block.

I adhered my text block as described above to some white cardstock, trimmed down. Sponged some Distress "Fossilized Amber" around the edges and under my "love You".

Die cut the word "Love" and the word "You" from some scrapbook cardstock and intertwined the 2 words together. I didn't like the scrapbook paper with my text applied Versamark all over and embossed with Hot Stuff "Turquoise Shimmer" embossing powder. Cut another of the 2 words from a teal cardstock and adhered the 2 together as a shadow layer, then onto my card front piece. Adhered to a teal textured cardstock and used a layering ruler to cut a 1/8" border all around. Adhered to my card.

Added a blue Sari bow and attached a gold heart charm with some light blue twine.

On the inside: Stamped the quote using Versafine Black Onyx and clear embossed.

Stamped the bird image (Penny Black "The Sweetest Sound") using Distress mini pads to color, misted with water and stamped, then clear embossed.
