Friendship File

This week, I signed up for the weekly challenge on one of my yahoo groups. We were supposed to make a file folder card using Beate's tutorial.

To my delight, I was assigned my friend Rose Kerry! She is such a kind and loving person, so I knew my card would have to focus on friendship.

I also wanted to try last week's color challenge on splitcoast (CC135) and this is what I came up with.

I chose to use Simply Said since I haven't used it in so long and it has the perfect friendship saying. For the saying, I swiped a scrap of white card stock with a sponge dauber inked up with river rock ink. Then I stamped the sentiment on top and punched with the large oval punch. To make it stand out more, I ran the edges of the oval across a black marker.

Stamps: Simply Said, Wonderful Words
Ink: Basic Black, Basic Gray, River Rock, Whisper White Craft Ink
Card stock: Whisper White, Basic Gray, River Rock, Basic Black
Accessories: Basic Gray Taffeta
Ribbon
Tools: Large Oval Punch, Round Tab Punch, Pop-up Glue Dots, Neutral Watercolor Wonder Crayons, Signo White Gel Pen, Black Marker
