Friendship CardThis A2 card gets my vote for the easiest card I have ever made. I started with an 8-1/2" x 11" piece of patterned cardstock, cut in half width-wise.
SentimentThe 'hello friend' sentiment was cut using the Cricut Beyond Birthdays cartridge. I shadowed it in a charcoal gray.
The dragonfly took a little bit of time. This was mostly because I was using a new die and stamp set, and tried to get too fancy with the vellum wings. I do like that they are still transparent, yet with a little bit of veining.
Since my aim was to make this attractive yet quick, I did not over-embellish the inside. I did however, print a custom message inside. This is easy to do in Word as a text box.
And while I was at it, I printed my own little logo on the flip side to appear on the back near the bottom (another text box).
- The obvious embellishment is the dragonfly, of course. Cut twice - once from white cs, once from vellum. I trimmed off the wings from the white one and sponged the body with aqua and light green. Then I adhered the body to the vellum layer. A couple of blue rhinestones finish him off.
- I chose a ribbon that coordinates with the yellow and gray in the sentiment. Before applying ribbon to the yellow bottom strip, I punched the edge with my MS lattice punch.
I hope my friend likes her card. This one was fun to make!
