good friends…

Background Bits - Friend by Tammy C. Wilson

05.06.18… Whether you have that one extra special bestie (…or several) in your life, it’s always nice to show your appreciation for  them, whenever you can.  I love creating individual cards for each of my friends, that not only express my appreciation of our friendship, but their personality as well.  That being said, this card is one ofthose special creations.  I not only used a color combo that I knew would suit my friend just perfectly, but I also used a mix of patterns, shapes and textures that reflect her taste as well.

I layered Pool Party cardstock (embossed with the Polka Dot Basics Embossing Folder) onto a Whisper White cardstock base.  I used a couple of strips of Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper, and then used one of the Layering Squares Framelits to die cut a scalloped square from the Wood Textures Designer Series PaperOld Olive and Pool Party Stampin’ Write Markers were used to color the flower stamp from the Background Bits Hostess Stamp Set (…you can earn this set for FREE with an order of $150 or more).

You may be asking yourself, “Why didn’t she mention that cute polka dot ribbon that she used?”  Well, to be exact….. it’s the 5/8″ Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon, from the brand new  Stampin’ Up! 2018-2018 Annual Catalog!  And… can order it as soon as the new catalog goes “live” on June 1, 2018.  This ribbon is so versatile!  You’ll want to order a least a couple of spools to get you started!

DON’T FORGET:   Both the 2017-2018 Catalog and the 2018 Occasions catalog will only be valid through May 31, 2018.  Check out the Last Chance Products to  make sure that you don’t miss out on ordering some of your retiring favs!!
