Dearest Friend Card

Designer’s Tip: Stamp images using Perfect Medium™ on a dark background and brush with Perfect Pearls™ to provide contrast and really make the Perfect Pearls™ stand out.
- 1) Place the card fold on the left and cover with burgundy Darkroom Paper. Glue 1 ¼” wide strip of stripe Darkroom Paper down the card, 1/8” from the right edge. Ink the card edges.
- 2) On 3¼”x4 ¾” dark brown Darkroom paper, stamp wildflower Unforgettable Stamps with Perfect Medium™ as shown. Use the dry paintbrushes, included in the Perfect Pearls™ Kit to apply a light dusting of Sunflower Sparkle, Turquoise and Berry Twist powders. Stamp “Dearest Friend” at the top right corner and dust with Sunflower Sparkle. Stamp an Unforgettable tiny butterfly on a scrap piece of dark brown Darkroom paper and dust with Sunflower Sparkle and Turquoise Perfect Pearls™. Cut out and glue among the flower, as shown.
- 3) Mat stamped rectangle with aqua cardstock, leaving 1/16” border and ink the edges. Glue to the card front, 1 1/8” from the right and ¾” from the card bottom. Use 3/8” wide blue swirl Darkroom Ribbon to make a bow and Zot( to the card as shown.
- 4) Inside: Cover the card with gold Darkroom Paper. Using Perfect Medium™, stamp 1½”x6” dark brown Darkroom Paper with wildflower and 2 tiny bees Unforgettable Stamps. Dust with Perfect Pearls™ Sunflower Sparkle, Turquoise and Berry Twist. Mat with aqua cardstock, leaving 1/16” border and ink edges. Glue to the card, ¼” from the fold.
