Friends for Life

Another card for you today and it is again on a Kraft card base.  The 6 inch papers used this time are from the Mellow collection by Basic Grey.  I started by cutting a base mat and applied this to the card with double sided adhesive. Next I diecut a tag through the Big Shot and cut a strip of matching paper the same width as the base mat.  This strip was then matted again on some maroon paper.  This mat was then decorated with faux stitches applied with a black marker and embellished with a Kraft tab and a paper flower, some crushed olive Distress Stickles and a self adhesive word sticker.  The decorated strip was then applied at the base of the card.

The tag  was edged with fired brick Distress Ink and again edged with faux stitches before adding a small double bow of plain jute string through a hole made in the tag with a pokey tool.  This was then applied as shown.

The main stamp used is by Lost Coast Designs and was stamped on white card with Memento tuxedo black ink.  The little guys were coloured with Copic Markers before trimming out.  The image was then mounted on foam pads and stuck in place.

Finishing touch was to colour a piece of twiggy chipboard with the maroon paper, trim off excess with a craft knife, add some dots of crushed olive Distress Stickles.
