Created Byhand Challenge - Words of Love/Friendship


Wouldn't this be a wonderful Christmas card for a special friend!!!!  All stamps are from Quietfire Design.  The ornament is cut with Spellbinder's dies - the ornament and an oval for the cut out piece... it was cut from glossy white cardstock, colored with alcohol inks, edged with gold Krylon, and then covered with Rock Candy Distress Stickles so it glistens as the card moves.  'BfF' is stamped on a scrap of regular white cardstock and colored with Distress Inks bundled sage and pine needles and then I decided to cover the piece with clear embossing... cut it to fit behind the ornament and attached it.  Added a gold 1/8" eyelet to the top.  Colored 4mm white silk ribbon with gold paint and looped it on.  For the background piece I used white glossy cardstock... stamped the Merry Christmas snowflake with Versamark ink, dried it a bit with the heat tool, sponged on Distress inks bundled sage and pine needles blending as I went... then flicked the piece with water, blotted it up and dried it.  Stamped the friend stamp with Archival Ink jet black.  Cut the edges with a deckle scissors and edged it with gold Krylon.  Adhered the ornament to the background taping the ribbon ends to the back and stuck it all to a folded red card.
