True Friendship Card with Tonic and Tim Holtz Dies
So you know how I love to make all those detailed little embellishments? Well this is why!
I also adore making cards for people I love, whether they be family, friends, or "new friends",lol!
This is when the embellishments come in handy, as I can incorporate them to my cards and make them look unique and different!
Here I made a card for a new friend, and I used some of my favorite products!
Above, you can see that I added the small camera from Tim Holtz for Sizzix, and a Tonic Studios stamp in the center that reads: True Friendship Lasts Forever
I also completed the embellishment with a raffia rosette, and scattered pearls and sequins for a sparkly effect.
The small stamped image is from Santoro London Gorguss Girls, and I cannot express how much I love using these little girls every chance I get! I colored her using Nuvo Markers and Gelly Roll pen for additional shine.
Layering the die cut papers allowed me to frame the image without taking away from the coloring, and I also framed it with handmade flowers that matched my card perfectly!
The gorgeous card base is made with Tonic's Memory Book Collection dies, and it lends a book-style front to this large card that makes a big impact even though the colors and textures throughout are all soft.
I hope that you have enjoyed this post today, and if you like to take a peek at more detail, watch me make this card here!
