Good Friends are Like Card
By Gail Booth
Designer Tip: Layer your pens when coloring to create different colors.
- Place your card with the fold at the top. Cut 1 1/2" off the right edge. Mat a 4 5/8" square of green cardstock on black houndstooth with a 1/16" border and center on your card.
- Stamp the girlfriend image on a 4 1/8"x3 1/4" white cardstock with pigment ink. Use various pens to color in the stamped image. Mat the cardstock on houndstooth with a 1/16" border and foam tape 1/4" from the lower edges of the green. Stamp the "Good friends..." text on a 3 1/2"x3/4" white cardstock with VersaMark and emboss in black. Ink the edges black and mat on green with a 1/16" border. Punch a hole at each end and set aside.
- Cut a 6" long strip of the lace border paper and cut along the lace edge. Glue a 6"x1/4" houndstooth paper on the top edge of the lace and foam tape the lace along the top of the card, folding the ends under the matted green cardstock. Cut two 5" lengths of ribbon and tuck under the folded lace ends, leaving loose.
- Thread two 5" lengths of ribbon into the holes on the text label and glue underneath. Foam tape the label as shown and tie the ribbons at each end, trimming ends.
