Beauty of Friendship – Thinking of You

Back at it this afternoon…another Color and Sketch combination…

Tuesday Morning (#699) Sketch and Color Throwdown (#734).

Here is the result:



  • Card Base: (8½” x 5½” scored at 4¼”) Soft Suede cardstock.
  • Background Panel: (4” x 5¼”) Soft Suede cardstock dry-embossed with the Cross-Hatch Basics 3D Embossing Folder (a new favorite).
  • Left & Right Panel Accent Mats: (2⅜” x 3⅝”) Crumb Cake cardstock.
  • Left Panel: (2¼” x 3½”) Soft Suede Dotted patterned piece of paper from the 2022/2023 Neutrals Collections Designer Series Paper pack.
  • Right Panel: (2¼” x 3½”) Very Vanilla cardstock.  All images from the Beauty of Friendship stamp set.
    • The Tree Trunk image was stamped with Soft Suede ink.
    • The Tree Foliage image was added with Mossy Meadow ink.
    • The Splatter image was added with Crumb Cake ink.
  • Cross Strips: (4” x ½”), (4” x ⅜”) and (4” x ¼”) Garden Green cardstock scrap.
    • On the (½”) strip, the sentiment, Thinking of you, also from the same stamp set was stamped with Versamark ink and heat-set with White Embossing Powder.
    • The strips were dry-embossed with the retired Subtle 3D Embossing Folder.

All pieces were adhered to the card base to resemble the sketch.  The Focal Panel was popped up with Dimensionals.  

A card suitable for many occasions…
