Handmade Friends Card

Hello crafty friends! It's rare for me to make a friendship card but I'm giving this Handmade Friends Card to my Mother for one of her friends. The sentiment says "Friends make the world a better place" and it's from the Jillibean Soup (Hampton Arts) Handwritten Sentiments stamp set. Most of the patterned paper is from the Spring Fling paper pad by Pebbles with exception of the yellow polka dots which I found in my scrap bin. The digital Flower Teapot image is by Bugaboo Digi Stamps and it was colored with Copic markers. A stitched circle die was used to cut out the image and then Fiskars deckle scissors were used to cut the matting circle. Three pale pink glimmer stickers were used for detail and that't it. Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a lovely week!

This Handmade Friends Card is entered into the following challenges:


  1. Such a pretty card! I love the focal image in a circle and matted like that.
