A friend is....card

Here's another card using the amazing January Stamp of the Month, Find Your Style. I love the way Close to my Heart put designs with words inside of the images on this set. For this card you need to cut a black cardstock base 5 1/2 by 4 1/2 inches. I'm using the Wings set again, that's the special paper that will get you some super reduced stamp prices this month. See PRODUCTS to find out how. Cut three strips of the green checked paper 4 inches by 1 1/2 inches. Distress all with black ink. Glue them as shown to the card front.

I used vineyard berry, black, twilight and sweet leaf ink on this card. You can take the the various words on the stamp set and stamp them on a piece of colonial white cardstock cut 4 1/2 inches by 3 1/4 inches. Don't be afraid to let them overlap.

Here's approximately what it will look like when you are finished but remember, when random stamping the results are always unique. Distress the edges with black ink.

Glue this piece down to the center of the card. I used Tombow adhesive.

Stamp the shoe image in black on some spare colonial white cardstock. Cut it out and glue it on the lower left of the card. Now cut a piece of colonial white cardstock 8 1/2 by 5 1/2 inches, fold in half and glue the card front to it. ALWAYS ATTACH CARD FRONT TO CARD BASE WHEN YOU ARE GOING TO GLITTER, that way you don't have to worry about trying to glue a possibly wet or messy card front to the card base.

Stamp the saying from the stamp set in black on a piece of colonial white cardstock cut 3 inches by 1 3/4 inches. Cut a mat out of the black polka dot patterned paper 3 1/4 by 2 inches and glue the saying on it. Put the piece on the upper right of your card as shown.

Apply glue to the entire shoe. Add prisma glitter and let dry.

When the glue is dry, thunk the back of your card with your finger to get all the glitter off the unglued parts. Add three of our new green sparkles on the upper right of the saying. Enjoy!


  1. The glittery shoe really makes this card!

  2. Pretty card. The shoe looks great all covered with the glitter. Surprised how green it looks, but I really like the green sparkly look.

  3. I know, I'm not sure why it looks so green either.
