I had a lot of fun creating today’s card!
It’s an idea I’ve wanted to
try for a long time but just never found the right combination!
I cut three pieces of Multipurpose
Adhesive Sheets (144106 – page 203) that also measured 2.5″ x 3.5″.
removed one side of the backing paper from the adhesive rectangles and
adhered them to the back of the DSP rectangles, and either side of the
I cut the FREIND
away from the body of the Tranquil Tide CS right on the actual curve,
removed the other backing sheet from the Adhesive Sheet and adhered
FRIEND onto the Whisper White CS.
PLEASE NOTE: later on I realised I
hadn’t needed to detach FRIEND from the main body of Tranquil Tide!
should have removed the top half above and the bottom half below
FRIEND, and the bits inthe letters, F, E, and D.
I chose which DSP I wanted above FRIEND, which one I wanted below, and adhered them in place.
At this stage it became a bit fiddly,
because I wanted to save the tiny pieces of DSP I pushed out from the
inside of the letters F, E and D.
I saved the wrong one for the D – it
should be white – but I can live with that! LOL!
was the time to plan the actual card layout!
decided to die cut the FRIEND using the largset oval Stitched Shapes
Framelits, and lay it towards the bottom of the card with some Tranquil
Tide Ribbon wrapped around the top layer.

I took a
piece of Whisper White CS and wiped over it with my Embossing Buddy.
inked the stamp in Versamark, then Tranquil Tide Ink, and quickly dipped
it into Clear Embossing powder.

I die cut a scalloped oval to layer the sentiment on
using the Layering Oval Dies.
I wanted the heights to more or less
mirror the separation line on the FRIEND die cut.
I inserted a layer of
Whisper White CS inside my card and added a ready-made embellishment I
found in my Tranquil Tide Ziplock Bag, which fitted the colour scheme
and DSP I’d used for this card.
The stamp is from the Bloomin Love Stamp Set.
Until tomorrow, happy crafting.
