Sunny Studio Stamps: Friends are Life's Greatest Blessing

Hello crafty friends! I have a friendship card to share with you today. My card features Friends & Family and A Bird's Life stamp set from Sunny Studio Stamps. I think these two sets go really well together to help you create sweet scenes with pretty flowers and cute birds.

To begin, I trimmed white cardstock to 4-1/4"x 5-1/2 and die-cut it with the largest die from Traditional Tag Toppers to make the card front. While I had the die out, I also die-cut an A2 size card base to match the card front. However, I made sure to line up the die slightly above the paper so that the sides would get cut and not the top. This created a top folding tag shaped card base. 

On the front panel, I stamped the flowers from the Friends & Family stamp set using various dye inks. I also blended the bottom of the panel with green dye ink. Then, I stamped the sentiment, "Friends Are Life's Greatest Blessings" from the same stamp set. I love that this set has so many wonderful sentiments about friends and family. I heat embossed the word "friends" in blue and stamped the rest in black ink. 

To add dimension to the card, I stamped the flowers from Friends & Family again on a different white cardstock and cut them out. After, I stamped the birds, the birdhouse from A Bird's Life with Antique Linen Distress Ink and colored them with Copics. I decided to do no-line coloring to match the flowers.  For the wooden pole, I stamped it with brown dye ink and colored it with Copics. I used the coordinating dies to cut them out.

Then, I adhered the flowers with a single layer of foam tape, and others with double layers to the front panel. For extra sweetness, I added a twine bow on top. To finish, I mounted the panel to the prepared card base.

I hope you enjoyed today's post. Thank you for stopping by!
