Celebrating friendship with Time Out Challenges

by - March 26, 2020

Hello Crafters,

I have the honor of being a guest designer at Time Out Challenges! This means so much to me as it is my first time guest designing. The theme for this challenge, sponsored by CAS-usual Friday stamps, is “Lots or a Little Purple with an optional twist of friendship.

For this card, I was inspired by a Celtic knot used a symbol for friendship. I cut the knot using my cameo on some DIY silver card stock made from silver gift wrapping paper from the dollar store! The flowers are from Altenew’s Flower Garden stamp set and were heat embossed using WOW copper embossing powder. For the background, I used a mix of distress inks and Simon says stamp mini inks. For some extra texture, I heat embossed the background using Spellbinders Canvas Prints Stamp (doesn’t this look just gorgeous? Looks so much like linen or burlap!) and WOW pearl embossing powder. The sentiment was heat embossed on tracing paper (a cheaper alternative than vellum paper imo!) using WOW copper embossing powder. 

I hope you like this card. Do join Time Out Challenges by linking a project! Can’t wait to see what you all create.
