How to Make 3 Friendship Cards with 1 Technique

by Aga

Hello, everyone! It's Aga here today with three friendship cards created with only a few similar crafty products along with the newly released Friends Forever Stamp Set and coordinating dies.

Card 1

For my first card, I started by die cutting two branches from Hanging Garden Die Set out of white cardstock to create a beautiful soft textured background. After that, I placed them on my card and stamped a sentiment from Friends Forever Stamp Set with Espresso Crisp Dye Ink. Then, as a main focus, I used a cup stamp from the set and a paper piecing technique. This is a simple stamping technique that allows you to add quick detail to your stamped images and uses colored cardstock or patterned paper.

I used a beautiful floral paper from Verdant Walk 6×6 Paper Pack to cut out a cup shape and kraft cardstock for the details stamped with Espresso Crisp Dye Ink.

Card 2

For my second friendship card, I stamped my cup stamp with Espresso Crisp Dye Ink onto kraft cardstock and used patterned paper and white cardstock for the smaller parts. I also added a negative panel popped up with a foam tape for more interest and dimension.

To finish the card off, I stamped “coffee marks” from Watercolor Frames Stamp Set with Espresso Crisp Dye Ink in the background and added my sentiment and two straws.

For my last card, I stamped three cup stamps with Espresso Crisp Dye Ink onto white cardstock and finished them with details cut out of patterned paper.
