Best Friends Always

I think I used everything but the kitchen sink on this one!  This has "SHABBY" written all over it! The color combination is simple yet I packed a lot of detail into the three color combo card!  I love how it turned out, hope you do too!

I used bits and pieces of different stamps to make this card.  The "Friends" tag on the front is made with a stamp from the Friends 24-7 stamp set.  I just used my Stampin' Write Marker in Baja Breeze to color the word "Friends" from the stamp image and stamped it onto Very Vanilla Cardstock.  I also used the Label stamp from the Welcome Christmas stamp set and colored the frame with Baja Breeze and stamped it onto the inside of the card.  I love doing this because you can use your stamps for so much more than what they were originally intended.  Who would have thought I used a stamp from a Christmas set on this card?   It is a smart way to stretch your stamping dollars!

Supplies Used:
Stamps:  Because I Care (Hostess Level 1), Friends 24-7, Fabulous Phrases, Define Your Life, Welcome Christmas, Season Of Friendship, Sanded, Very Vintage Jumbo Wheel

Amy, your card is stunning!!! I love everything, the colors, the details and esp how you folded that scallop ribbon border punch piece in the corner. The inside is just as gorgeous!!! Hugs,
