I am thankful for a lot of things in my life, my parents, loving sis, caring husband, family, friends and most of all our super adorable son. I am truly blessed to have a stable job and to have found my calling i.e. crafting – Handmade Happiness.
But every once in a while life throws a curve ball and you got to deal with it. Recently, I had such a situation and thanks to a very loving friend, whom i absolutely admire, i could hit this curve ball right out of the park! I knew fell down hard, but thanks to my dear friend, i got myself up feeling more powerful and beautiful from within. Thank you dear friend and this card is especially for you. I am forever Grateful to you and our friendship.
Here’s To make this card i first stamped and colored the center cut floral stamp by Simon Say stamp. After fussy cutting the image, I then covered the colored portion with glossy accents for added texture and dimension.
Once the focal image was ready, before adhering it with foam squares i stencilled the background in soft grey color.
I then added the strip of black fish cut card stock with the sentiment heat embossed in white.
Finally to finish the card, i adhered the card onto a grey card base and added clear sequin.
I enjoyed making this card, as i was filled with an overwhelming feeling of gratefulness towards my friend and all the while i was making this card, i was only thinking about her. Using the colors i thought she would like, enjoying the whole experience of making something from my heart for a loved one.
I share my story, mostly to encourage/inspire anyone who is reading this, not to shy away from seeking help of friends. Not to suffer or deal with the life alone. It’s surprising how a chat / drive with a friend, can make life more wonderful.
