In the Sweetness of Friendship

Wednesday, September 26, 2012

Hi Friends! I won't keep you but a sec, with the card I want to share with you today.


I used the MFT Wednesday Stamp Club Sketch #91, the Colour Q #156 color palette, and Flourishes Timeless Tuesday theme of "Fall."


I went with lighter shades of the colors to give the card a softer feel. 

I cut the leaves from felt. I used MFT felt for the rose colored leaf, and "Eco felt" from Joann for the tan leaf. The difference in the felt is amazing. Not only does the MFT felt look and feel better, it also cuts better. I can see that I'm going to have to invest in more MFT felt!!!

The inside is pretty simple, with two leaves stamped on white cs, with a strip of dp from the front of the card stitched across the top of it. I punched the top with the binding edge punch to match the front, too.

Thanks for stopping by, and have a great night!

I'd like to enter this card in the following challenges:
