AAA Cards Challenge -“Friends”

Hello There! Happy Friendship day!!!

I am super super excited for this AAACards Challenge, because the cue word – Friendship, is most dear to me. I actually started making cards to give them to my friends and loved ones. But i am hooked to crafting because of the amazingly friendly crafting community. The daily dose of positive energy has become my staple and has made me a better person in many ways.  Now, i can’t live without it.


Here’s my card for the challenge and i hope it inspires you to play along with us.

XCLB7243aHere’s how i made the card. The first thing i did was to die cut the word friend 3 times and adhered each on top of the other to make a dimensional word piece. Once I had that, I searched my collection of colored images from the daily marker 30 day challenge and  found this cute image of the boy peeking our of the doughnut from a stampset by Neat and Tangled. I had colored with image with copic markers and fussy cut it, ready for use. I then, on strip of black card stock, white heat embossed the “you’re sweet” words. I added a strip of  colorful plaid pattern paper by Lawn Fawn on the side on the card front. Then i adhered all the other elements that were already ready to finish the card.

I actually made this card for my son, Ishaan. He is a real sweet guy, my crafting buddy, loves travelling with me, experiment with food and do all the goofy stuff with me. He is someone who is very funny and always cheers me up when i am feeling low. I am truly blessed to have this lil friend in my life. And yep, if he ever found a doughnut of the right size, he would not wait a second to hold it up and see if his head fitted in. Lol!!!!


I hope my cards inspires you to play along AAA Cards challenge and gets you crafting to make some handmade happiness for your loved ones. Just remember to KEEP IT CAS (Clean And Simple).
