Friend of Mine
Tuesday, March 29, 2011
The postman brought me a lovely packet this morning, inside was the Crate Paper Friend of Mine Kit available from The Craft's Meow I can't wait to use the gorgeous Crate papers but I had to use this lovely 'Friend of mine' stamp included in the kit! It's so pretty and designed by Claire Brennan. I also made this card with this week's challenge (CCCB#50) at the City Crafter Challenge blog in mind, the theme is 'Celebrate Good Times', you have to include a banner or the word 'party' on your project. I also used the colors from this week's challenge at The Play Date Cafe (PDCC74).
The label is from Very Vintage Labels No.18 from Waltzingmouse Stamps, stamped in VersaMagic Pretty Petunia. I cut the label out by hand. As I mentioned the sentiment is from The Craft's Meow. The background is plain white card embossed with Swiss Dots embossing folder. I made a double bow from white seam binding and added a fabric covered button.
The banner I made using Bitty Banners from Waltzingmouse Stamps. The butterfly at the end is from the same set as the sentiment Friend of Mine. The background paper is stamped with text from Text-It by Waltzingmouse Stamps. The blue stripe paper is from a digital set but I can't remember which, it was in my scraps box! Must dash, should be working on a quilling project!!
