We Must Celebrate : Awesome Friends #tgifc143
Happy Friday! TGIFC143
It’s Friday and time for a Theme! This month’s theme is Awesome Friends. I just acquired the We Must Celebrate Stamp Set from the 2018 Occasions Catalog and I knew I wanted to use this for my Awesome Friends Creation!
Those furry little friends are just adorable and perfect for coloring, and I LOVE to color! I used my trusty Aqua Painter with Shimmery White Cardstock on this creation!
Card Base: Whisper White Thick Cardstock cut to 4 1/4 x 11 in. Scored/Folded at 5 1/2 inches for a standard sized card that fits perfectly in our Medium Sized Envelopes.
2nd Layer: Petal Passion Designer Series Paper cut to 4 1/8 in. x 5 3/8 in. Adhered to the card base with Fast Fuse Adhesive.
3rd Layer: Basic Black Cardstock cut to 3 7/8 in x 5 1/8 in and adhered to the 2nd Layer with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
4th Layer: Shimmery White Cardstock cut to 3 3/4 in x 5 in, adhered with Fast Fuse Adhesive. I wrapped two pieces of the Basic Gray 1/4″ Shimmer Ribbon (Sale-A-Bration Item – Free with $50 Purchase) with a 1/4 inch space between to act as a fun layer behind the horizontal strip.
Horizontal Strip: 2 1/4 in x 3 3/4 in Shimmery White Cardstock, Smooched with Smoky Classic Ink. The Ticket Tear Border Punch did its job on the edges to add some texture. Adhered to 4th Layer with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
Embellishments: Basic Gray 1/4″ Shimmer Ribbon, Metallics Sequin Assortment

I am sure you have noticed how much I absolutely love the Ink Smooching Technique! It just adds so much to the card and is so easy to do. I have shared a step-by-step tutorial on ink smooching and watercolor background, you can download it now by CLICKING HERE.
I love adding sequins to my cards, it just adds an eye-catching accent that makes the card. The Fine-Tip Glue Pen makes adhering the sequins a snap!
