A Feels Good Friendship Card

This was a super simple and quick card to make.  I think it took me longer to get out the supplies to make this card than it did to actually complete it!!! Putting the supplies away is a story for a different day!!! LOL

I used the new "Pretty Petals" decorative paper stack.  I LOVE those stacks.  This one is fabulous and I have a feeling I may actually use it up before it retires!!!  That would be a first!  Sometimes I tend to hoard pages because I think they are so fabulous and other times I forget I have the stack.  So I'm going to try hard to use this one up.  Though I don't think it will be so hard.  Like I said, it's got lots of pretty pages in it!!!  The bottom layer is the backside of the top layer.  I was going to add a third panel but there wasn't room for it so I just stuck with the 2 panels and the words.  And that makes 3 pieces and it's always best to work in odd numbers.  So I complied with the artistic rule of thumb!!! LOL

I used Very Vanilla card stock. I had originally stamped the words on Whisper White card stock and then I began to assemble the card and realized that the flowered background looked more vanilla than white.  SO I restamped the words on Very Vanilla and used the oval die to cut it out on my Big Shot.  I used the next larger size oval and cut it out using Pacific Point card stock. I also cut out the other two strips in Pacific Point.  

The card may or may not need some bling.  I don't like to add a lot of it because it would cost more to mail. Sometimes less is more!!!  Right?

This was a fun card to make.  Using decorative paper helps in making cards go together quicker and adds a lot of color and dimension to a card.

This layout would make a fun Make n Take card or even a fun Stamp A Stack card!!
