Sharon Harnist asked me to use the card kit we got at regional and make a card with it other then the one suggested by Stampin’ Up!. We supposed to use all the pieces that were given in the kit. We could exchange the set (SU used True Friends) and add additional cardstock and supplies.

Read Sharon’s challenge post here. 


The card base is a 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ piece of Basic Gray folded in half.

The 2 1/2″ Soft Sky cardstock square was stamped with the Close as a Memory Flower in Going gray and sponged in the same color. I highlighted the flower edges with a white gel pen and added a silver brad in each flower center.

The edges were distressed with the cutter kit and paper pierced.

It was layered on a 2 1/2″ sponged and distressed Basic Gray cardstock square.

The 2 1/4″ x 4″ Purely Pomegranate carstock piece was sponged, stamped with the Happiness stripes, paper pierced and taped down. Then Faux Stitching was added with the Argyle stamp from All in a Row.

The ribbon from the Sherbert Ribbon Originals was stapled over the Pomegranate layer.

The saying is from Circle of Friendship. I stamped it with Basic Gray on Whisper White cardstock, punched it out with the 1″ circle punch and sponged it with Soft Sky Ink. I stamped it again on white and punched out the center with the 1/2″ circle punch. I taped the smaller circle in the center of the bigger one and layered them first on a distressed and sponged Basic Gray circle (handcut), then on a 1 1/4″ Purely Pomegranate circle.
