Friends Words With Shadows SugarCut

Interlocking Circles SugarCut

And here’s what I came up with for you today! A sweet friend card with a bit of inking and die cutting! To start, I heat embossed one part of the sentiment from Friendship Sentiments set on a narrow strip of a black cardstock. Then I die cut the word “friend” using Friends Words With Shadows SugarCut set and glued two pieces together to form the white word with the black shadow part. At this point, I also die cut tree times Interlocking Circles and stacked all the layers together.

Since my intention was to make an inked background, I started with a piece of Watercolor Cardstock from Tim Holtz because this paper was meant to work with Distress inks. I used Squeezed Lemonade, Mustard Seeds, Picked Raspberry and Wilted Violet Distress inks for my blending. I moved back and force with a blending tool a few times layering the colors and overlapping them a bit to achieve a smooth look. Then I added a few tiny water droplets and some colorful splashes on top for more interest. Finally assembled all the elements together by gluing the Interlocking Circles directly to the background and the die cut work “friend” on top of the circles with Multi Medium Matte liquid adhesive.

  1. Beautiful card! Those vibrant colors look magnificent together and the blending is fantastic! Love the little touches of ink splatters too! So very pretty!

  2. Your ink blending for that background is so striking! I wouldn’t have thought to put those colors together, but the effect is absolutely stunning!
