Forever Friends

Hello My Crafty Friends,

It’s Christine here today sharing a card I created for my dear friend since high school (my 50th class reunion is this summer, hers was last summer).   We now live an hour and a half apart but try to meet halfway for a day of shopping, eating and catching up every so often.

A Friendship Card with a Pretty Geranium

April 13, 2018

Hi, It’s Kelly Booth with you today.  I often need a friendship card or a generic card to send to a friend. Using Suzanne Cannon’s A Way With Words and a simple flower by Susan Tierney Cockburn are the perfect combination for this!  For my tutorial I chose the Friends word die and Susan’s Geranium.

Happy Birthday Friend

February 17, 2018

 by Judi Kauffman

So many people have requested masculine cards that I thought I’d head in that direction today. It’s an oversized card meant to hang on the wall, though you could make a smaller size version with only one star. If you plan to mail it in an envelope, skip the bead at the top.

As with almost all papercrafting projects, switching the color combination and a few other elements will give the card a very different look. Choose bright color flowers instead of stars, polka dots instead of wood grain cardstock, or combine pastel butterflies with cardstock printed or stenciled with clouds in soft shades of blue. Voila! The transformation is complete…

One little secret: The die for the word ‘Friend’ has an ‘s’ on the end so you’ll need to do a bit of careful trimming to change it from a plural noun.

Sweet Friend by Diana Nguyen

Hello, sweet readers!  Diana here again to share a clean and simple card that is perfect for any occasion.  The front is a simple greeting to a sweet friend – inside you could write Happy Birthday, Hello, Thank you, or just a note of friendship.  Read on to see how I made this card.  Though clean in design, a lot of interest is added by use of a veritable rainbow of colors, along with gold and some sparkly rhinestones.

Summer Friends – Split Panel Card

July 2, 2016

Summer Friends by Suzanne CannonA big summer hello!  It’s Suzanne here today with a card that is quickly becoming my “go to” card for its ease of assembly and its ability to look completely different depending on the words you choose and how you coordinate your patterned papers. In addition to Summer Friends, shown above, there are more samples right after the supply list, so be sure to take a peek!

For today’s card, I chose to combine Summer and Friends in light summery cottage colours, but it would be simple to convert this into a birthday or anniversary card.  The addition of the flourish from Calligraphic Elements is perfect underneath a word (like Friends or Thanks) where the die has no “built in” flourish under the word.

Here is how I made this cheery baby!
