Friendship's Sweetest Thoughts, 2018 Occasions Catalog

Today was a "let's color" day. I was in the mood to stamp something that I could just sit down and color.  The "Friendship's Sweetest Thoughts" set was perfect for that, plus I hadn't played with it yet.  I'm not sure why I bought this set.  I must have seen a finished card and it moved me to get the set.  So this is what I came up with.

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Flirty Flamingo. On top of that is a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Whisper White card stock.  On top of that is a 3-1/8" x 3-7/8" piece of Flirty Flamingo. On top of that is a 2-7/8" x 3-5/8" piece of Basic Black card stock. And the focal piece is cut 2-3/4" x 3-1/2".

I colored in the image using markers and Blends.  I had a lot of fun with the coloring, it was just the right amount of coloring I needed!!  I taped the focal layer, the Basic Black layer and the Flirty Flamingo layers all together.  I added Dimensionals to the back.

I set the focal layers on top of the card front to see where the words needed to go. I stamped the words from the "Friendship's Sweetest Thoughts" set using black Memento ink.  I set the focal piece in place and added a Whisper White piece on the inside to write on and that was it.  The coloring went quickly, so all in all it was not a huge time consumer to make.

Thank you SO much for stopping by today,
