Friends 24-7

Hi Stampers!
Today’s card was created for this week’s Stamping 411 Sketch Challenge (see for the great Design Team samples and all of the gorgeous entries). 

To create this card:

Cut the Designer Paper into four sections 3/4” wide x 4” high and mount these layers onto a piece of Early Espresso Cardstock.

Emboss a piece of River Rock using the Big Shot with the Vintage Wallpaper EF and lightly distress with Early Espresso Classic Ink using a Sponge Dauber.   Mount the previously created DP layer onto the embossed River Rock layer and set aside. 

With the Big Shot and the Top Note Die, cut one piece from River Rock and the other from Early Espresso.  Trim the River Rock Top Note shape along the perforated edge and lightly sand to smooth the edges. 

Stamp the bird image from Friends 24-7 into Versamark Ink and then into Early Espresso Classic Ink.  Heat emboss with Clear EP.  Ink the En Francais background stamp with Early Espresso and stamp over the bird image.  Lightly wipe off the ink from the bird image and layer this piece over the Early Espresso Top Note.   

Stamp the sentiment with Early Espresso Classic Ink onto River Rock.  Using the Curly Label Punch, punch out the sentiment and also punch out one in Early Espresso.  Cut the Early Espresso in half and trim the edges at the top point so only the east-west sides of this darker layer show the when mounted below the River Rock sentiment layer.

 Mount the Top Note layer onto the DP layer and add the sentiment with SU! Dimensionals .  Spray the entire card with Frost White Shimmer Paint (mixed with 70% alcohol). 

Mount the entire layer onto Early Espresso, attach the bow and add the pearls.
