Friendship Card for The Crafty Pad Challenge #145

Happy Halloween folks! We started a new challenge today at The Crafty Pad. Challenge #145, "Friendship". I'm using a cute little digi stamp, "Roshell Friends with Basket", available at The Crafty Pad Design Store. Our sponsor this week is Michelle's Scrap with a rubber stamp prize, Best Hugs by Alisa Ramirez. The Crafty Pad DT's have assembled a lovely group of cards expressing "Friendship", come play along with us!

My card is actually a hanging card. It has both a hanging ribbon and a magnetic strip on the back.

My lovely card was a deceivingly easy make for me. I selected a favorite digi background and printed the back layer of the card. This included the white bordering that was later punched and the sentiment. I sized and printed two 11 inch x 2.5 strips for the medallion. My duck stamp is altered to white with a blue line, I do this in my Corel 14 graphic program. I also have handy my Martha Stewart border punch, it's wonderful. The last item was a printed 2.5 circle with the now white stamp on the same digi paper.

There is zig zag sewing around the faux border, and I punched the medallion strip too before the folding. I've used a single blue silk rose and punched out little leaves. Punched holes for the ribbon to be knotted through and a business card sized magnet on the back. Whee, beautiful and fast for me. I need that sometimes.

Thanks for visiting me and my latest creation, please feel free to look all around The Crafty Pad blog for great ideas to enhance your creative fun!
