Season of Friendship for a Friend


Season of Friendship

I know, I have not been posting lately. I am taking a blogging class and may switch to Typepad in the months to come. I just got home from Stampin’ Up! Virgina Beach Regionals. It was loads of fun! I will be posting our make-and-takes with instructions a little later. Check back often….


Enough chatter, onto the card! This not your normal size card. I made this one a little smaller. It measures 5 x 41/4”. I started making the card and wondered why I could not put my greeting below the tree. I then realized it was not 5 ½” but I didn’t want to start over. Take a close look at the scallop punch. It is a scallop ring on the outside of the card. The two circles are on the inside of the card and the bird is popped up with dimensionals. Hope you like!

The Season of Friendship stamp set can be used for all seasons. If you like this set and don’t own it, email me or you can place an online order from my Stampin’ Up! website.
