Friends are the essence of life

Made a quick decoupage card last week:

I used:

- A6 white card blank

- a piece of mauve spotted backing paper from Dove craft's 'Back to Basics II' paper pad

- white snippet, die cut using Spellbinders 'Floral Oval' die

- foiled decoupage flowers from a sheet I bought ages ago whilst 'out hunting' with Mrs A (Newbury I think). I tend to use thin sticky pads for decoupage, which can be snipped into the smallest strips if necessary

- sentiment is from Kaisercraft's 'Friendship Sentiments' set, stamped using Memento 'Gray Flannel' ink pad

And a close-up to show the layers and foiling more clearly:

I love this sentiment- it sums up how blessed we are when we have good friends.

Such pretty foiled flowers Di and the sentiment says it all. The beautiful floral oval die enhances it so well too. x

This card really jumped out at me from my thumbnails. I do like oval frames, and the foil flowers are beautiful. I still like silicone gel for decoupage. I can´t be doing with peeling the back of all those little tabs! Kate x

Brenda said...

Oh my Di, this is just gorgeous! I love that mat you used-so ornamental and so pretty! The flowers are gorgeous too. I don't think I've ever done that technique before, but I am loving the results! Hugs, Brenda

My favorite of the ovals is perfect for the delicate pink & green of these gleaming flowers. Just a very feminine, sweet & pretty card. Well done!! TFS

So pretty! It all goes together so well. I have that oval out on my desk (I think it was your using it than made me "NEED" to have it myself). I have some of that foiled decoupage stuff somewhere too.
