Friend Card

This is a lovely cheerful card perfect for a friend that needs a little lift.

It's nice to give cards for no particular reason at all, just as it's nice to receive a card for no reason at all but to make you feel special or cheer you up.

These really simple brayered cards are ideal and very quick to make.

Choose your colours

You want colours that are differing shades some light and some dark and colours that will compliment one another and create the feel you want to achieve. Remember that anything with red in will jump to the foreground.

Choose your stamps

You want a variety of stamps, some which are line images and some which are bolder, filled in images or blocks.

The video shows how to use the brayer to create the background.

Minimal Card

Keeping this card simple was really difficult!

This card has very little on it or to it and I really wanted to keep doing more but I think it seems simple and stylish.

I did feel it needed something so a few of the little flowers I touched up with crystal effects and I added a few pearls to the corner.

This is the summer silhouettes stamp set which was a giveaway at the Stampin' Up! convention.
