Over at the Funkie Junkie Boutique Challenge, the theme this time is "Friendship." This theme really resonated with me because I have been so blessed with wonderful Christian friends throughout my life. This is a great opportunity to thank them for all the encouragement and prayer support they've given me. I actually did a series of friend-related cards using a few different card styles, so I'll be posting those soon, but I wanted to do one that seemed more in line with the Funkie Junkie Boutique style, so instead of my feminine floral cards, this one has some different elements than I usually use.
To create this card, I used a Tim Holtz die for the top right corner and then added some cardstock to the inside of the card to make the die cut section show up a little more. I used some fun paper that has the look of handmade paper with leaves and flower petals in it and embossed it with a Cuttlebug folder. Then I stamped a Close to My Heart grunge-style friendship stamp on tan cardstock and die cut it with a Gina Marie Designs stitched oval die. I added some burlap-style ribbon behind the sentiment (which I popped up using foam tape) and then adhered a metal decoration to the bottom left of the card.
