Odds & Sods – Friendship Card

Welcome back!  I’m getting a late start to the Sunday Play Time.  Hope you have had a great weekend.

I followed instructions as directed by As You See It (#294) to take a look at my stash of bits and pieces.  From the Cup and the Tin, I selected a number of previously discarded bits that did not make it on whatever I was creating at the time.

I took inspiration from the Sketch posted by Paper Craft Crew (#509) with a sentiment alteration and am sharing this card with Stampin’ Up! Only (#322) because they have a similar theme going too!

Here is the result:


Items pulled from my stash:

  • Very Vanilla cardstock (3¾” x 5”): The retired Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder was inked with Versamark and dry-embossed then heat-set with Gold Embossing Powder.
  • Evening Evergreen cardstock (2⅝” x 4”): Stitched Rectangle die-cut from the center of a larger Background Panel one of the dies from the Stitched Rectangles Dies set.
  • Distressed Gold Specialty Designer Series Paper Frame (2½” x 3⅞”): Remaining piece of paper when the interior was die-cut with the (2¼” x 3½”) Stitched Rectangle die.
  • Vellum (3” x 2½”): One of the Butterflies from the Butterfly Brilliance stamp set was inked with Versamark and heat-set with White Embossing Powder then die-cut with coordinating die from the Butterfly Dies set.
  • Gold Foil (2” x 2”): The sentiment, YOUR friendship FEELS LIKE home TO ME, from the retired Feels Like Home stamp set was stamped with Versamark and heat-set with Black Embossing Powder then die-cut with the (1½”) Circle die from the retired Stitched Shapes Dies set.
  • Naturally Gilded Specialty Designer Series Paper Circle Shape (2½”): The center piece that falls away when you cut the Dotted Threaded Circle image using the Circle Shaped die from the Irresistible Blooms Dies set.

All the odds & sods were layered onto a Very Vanilla cardstock card base (8½” x 5½” scored at 4¼”) to resemble the sketch.  The other pieces, Gilded Floral, Butterfly and Sentiment were arranged and added with the Sentiment and the Butterfly popped up with Dimensionals.

A very eclectic collection of elements coming together to make a rather pretty card.

  2. Isn’t it amazing what ends up in the odds’n’sods pile! Seems a lot of us had extra butterflies to play around with! I like that gorgeously textured background – definitely too good to waste! Thanks for playing along with us again at As You See It.

  3. That 2 way embossed background is amazing!! And butterflies seem to migrate to many scrap stashes it seems. The card turned out to be a lovely collab of all the pieces you found, with your skill knitting them all together! Thanks for spring cleaning with us at As You See It Challenges!
