Forever Friendship

Have you seen the new Forever Friendship stamp set in the new Holiday Mini (Jul-Dec) Catalog?  It was one of my first “Must Haves”.  Such fun images and fun sentiments.

I have used the Collection of Plants image and married it up with the current Color Throwdown (#700) colors and the current Atlantic Hearts Sketch (#480) which I flipped to the horizontal position.

Here is the result: 



  • Card Base: (8½” x 5½” scored at 4¼”) Very Vanilla cardstock.
  • Split Background Panel: (5¼” x 4”) Early Espresso and Crumb Cake Striped patterned pieces of paper from the 2022/2023 Neutrals Designer Series Paper pack.
    • The sentiment, Our friendship will live forever, was stamped with Versamark ink and heat-set with White Embossing Powder in the top left corner of the Early Espresso patterned paper.
    • The companion sentiment, Unlike most of the plants I’ve owned, was stamped into Versamark ink and then into Early Espresso ink and then heat-set with Clear Embossing Powder in the lower right corner of the Crumb Cake patterned paper.
  • Accent Oval: (3⅝” x 2⅝”) Pumpkin Pie cardstock die-cut with that sized die from the now retired Layering Ovals Framelits Dies set.
  • Focal Image Oval: (3¾” x 2¼”) Very Vanilla cardstock.
    • The Plants image was stamped with Early Espresso ink.
    • Using the Fine-Tipped Water Painter Brush, the image was water-colored, direct from Ink Pad lid with Crumb Cake, Crushed Curry, Pumpkin Pie and Early Espresso inks.
    • Once dry, the oval image was die-cut.

The two split halves of patterned paper were adhered to the card base and the matted oval was added to the center of the card front to complete the card.

I like the retro feel of these colors with this particular image.  A fun card to send to any special friend.

Thanks for spending some of your time with me.  Cheers,  Jolanda.

  1. What a great color scheme to use for this card and sentiment. Changing the sketch to horizontal was very clever as well. Thank you for joining us at the Atlantic Hearts Sketch challenge and hope you can join us again soon.
