True Friend

I created this card last night. It's totally different than I had originally pictured in my head, but sometimes you just have to let the card do the talking. Apparently this one did not like the plans I had, so it asked for some modifications! I'll wrestle with the other one later.

I got to use a new Jumbo Eyelet - and the Crop-a-Dile sets it just fine! (Have I told you how cool this gadget is?!) I also used a new stamp set from the Holiday collection called "True Friend". The background is Flannel Plaid done in Mellow Moss ink and the Pick a Petal outline is stamped onto the Fall Flowers Designer Series Paper with Always Artichoke ink. I embossed the center of the flower with Always Artichoke craft ink and clear powder before setting the eyelet.

Here's a complete list of supplies:
Stamp sets: Pick a Petal, True Friend, Flannel Plaid background
Cardstock: Naturals Ivory, Always Artichoke, Really Rust, Fall Flowers Designer Series
Ink: Always Artichoke classic and craft, Mellow Moss
Accessories: Jumbo Eyelet, brads, Twill Tape, Crop-a-Dile, Clear Embossing Powder, Heat Tool, Stampin' Dimensionals, Glue Dots

OMG! This is so nice! I just love the colors you used with the Pick A Petal stamp set! Unique! The Flannel Background stamp is PERFECT!
