Hey y'all. Happy humpday. :) I hope you're having a great week. I'm enjoying getting to spend time with my friend Jason. Speaking of friends, I have a sweet little card that's perfect for that special friend in your life.
Here's today's card-
I just love how this card turned out!
I started with a base of Calypso Coral, such a yummy color. Next I took a piece of Very Vanilla cut just a tad smaller to give a narrow border. I sponged it all around the edge with Calypso Coral just to give it some depth, but I love how when I matted it behind my main focal piece it gave the cardstock the appearance of being a light peachy color. Unexpected Bonus!
For my focal piece I used the "raindrop" image from the My Friend stamp set and stamped it multiple times using VersaMark onto another piece of Calypso Coral cut just a tad smaller than my Very Vanilla layer. I also stamped the sentiment from the same set in the same manner. Next I applied Gold Embossing Powder and used my Heat Tool to make the card come to life. Don't you just love heat embossing? It's just so magical! I love watching as my card magically transforms in front of my eyes. I sponged the edges of this piece of c/s as well and then Tombowed it to my Very Vanilla layer. These two layers were then adhered to my base using dimensionals.
Here's a close up of the focal layers -

I used the Bordering on Romance stamp set and just colored one of the flowers with my Stampin Write Markers. I stamped off once to lighten the image a little. Some more sponging around the edges and a little Tombow to adhere this layer and my card was done.
I hope you liked today's card and I hope it inspires you to make a little something special for that friend in your life who's an 11 to you.
