Teal Flourished Friendship Card

Good morning friends

Today's share is a a card I mailed to my friend 'B'. She came to visit me when we were in Arizona and we had lots of fun playing with dies and paper. I had picked up these printed square cards and envelopes on clearance at Michaels and 'B' was making really neat Spiral Circle Pull Cards with them. She inspired me to do the same!

The cards came pre-scored, but I ignored the original centre score line. I cut the card to 8-1/2" wide, and scored it at 4-1/4. Then I lined up the SCPC on the new centre score line and ran it through my Big Shot.


The envelope (above) was decorated with a strip of Washi Tape and I stamped 'happy mail' in 3 different shades of blue ink for an ombre look.  Below, I was able to cut the butterfly silhouette from the remaining piece of printed card! The Butterfly body is also a Pop it Ups die, from the Butterfly Pivot by Karen Burniston for Elizabeth Craft Designs.


The corner flourishes are from the Katie Accordion, and each one got a Glitter Dot.


Here is a peek at the inside ... I die cut the word 'Sending' from black card stock that had the ECD Clear Double Sided Tape on the back so adhering it was easy peasy.  I know that sequins are very trendy right now, but I don't plan on jumping on that bandwagon. I have a drawer full of confetti to use up so don't want to add sequins to the storage issue. Instead, I used Glitter Dots and I love the look.



I was happy with how this card came out, and I hope 'B' enjoyed the Happy Mail as much as I enjoyed making it for her.
