Lovely Friends Sneak Peek

Large greetings are really trendy right now, and the new Lovely Friends stamp set is tres chic! I love the greetings and ways that they can be combined. For this project I kept it simple, choosing to show off the gold patterned paper in Eastern Palace Specialty DSP (available in the Early Release bundles). The greeting is heat embossed in gold, then adhered to the Fresh Fig mat. These colors look so rich together!

I wanted to add some flowers, but had a tough time deciding which ones I liked the best, size-wise. I finally settled on the three smaller blossoms in Falling Flowers, because the May Flowers Framelits that match meant I didn't have to fussy-cut them. Yes, sometimes I'm lazy like that!

I had a gold die cut from the Flourish Thinlits in my bits box, which added an extra touch of shine. That box really is pretty useful sometimes!

The flowers were stamped in Fresh Fig on Whisper White cardstock, then I used a Blender Pen to pull some of the color into the image.

The two larger blossoms were popped up on dimensionals, and some Pearls Basic Jewels were added to the flower centers. Made for a quick and easy card!

  1. Cindy, you have such an eye for color! I like the fresh fig and gold combination, it is really catchy. I know it is even more lovely in person with the shine from the DSP and the gold embossing powder.

    1. Thank you, Sherry! It really *is* prettier in person.
