Friendship refreshes the soul! This is so true. I would also add in family to this greeting as well. There is just something about it that makes you feel refreshed and ready to conquer the world again. Who else feels this way?!?
I love this fun card because it uses a regular sized card base but yet has that fun look! I cut a card base in Evening Evergreen (8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″). Next, I scored the card at 4-1/4″ as if I was making a regular card. Then I cut along that 4-1/4″ score line from the top down 2-1/4″. Then this piece is used as the focal point!
I layered a piece of Basic White onto that cut off piece of Evening Evergreen and stamped on it with the Beauty of Friendship Stamp Set. For the tree, I stamped the detailed layer in Evening Evergreen and the larger background tree image in Soft Succulent! Those 2 stamps give so much texture and detail to the tree. It amazes me every time! TIP: Make sure when adhering the focal point to the card to only add adhesive on the bottom portion otherwise you will adhere your card closed.
On the inside of the card, I stamped another greeting and used the dots to add a little detail. For the dots, I stamped in the corner and then just kept stamping around as it got lighter and lighter.
