Happiness Abounds, Friendship Card, 2022-2023 Stampin' Up! Catalog

Today's card is a copied one. I found it here.  I thought it was pretty and also quick. Not that I was looking for a quick card, it just happened to be a quick one! Oh, and it was fun!

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Fresh Freesia card stock. This card opens on the bottom and the fold is on the top. 

I cut a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Basic White for the inside and I taped it down.

Then I cut a 3-3/4" x 5" piece of Basic White for the top layer. 

Next I cut a 3-3/4" x 2" piece of Designer Series Paper (DSP) from the "Hues of Happiness" 12" x 12" package. I taped that piece to the left side of the Basic White piece.

The words are from the "Happiness Abounds" set and were stamped using Gorgeous Grape ink.  After stamping I taped that down on the front of the card.

The flower is from the same package of DSP. I used the matching die to cut it out.  If you don't have the dies, it's pretty easy to fussy cut, there's not a lot of deep crevices to try to cut nicely.  It's mostly smooth cutting.  But I have the die, so I used it.  I added Dimensionals to the back of the flower and I set it in place on the front of the card.  I added some Wink of Stella to the center of the flower and also to the center of all of the flowers on the left panel. 

And for the final touch a crystal rhinestone was added and the card was done.  This is why I like to add the piece on the inside first because when I add the last item on the front, the card is done!

Thank you SO very much for taking your time to stop by and see today's friendship card,
