Best Friends

Isn't it true that best friends DO listen to what you don't say! Friendships are so important in our lives and I know I am thankful for each and every friend I have. It takes a special person to put up with me! I had a blast creating this card and using some really cool tools that make my stamping life easier! Let me give you some hints on what I used to create this card.

To create the circles, I used the Coluzzle which is perfect for making a variety of circles and they layer beautifully. The Tempting Turquoise circle was also created with the Coluzzle, then I took the Corner Rounder punch (without the guard) and punched around the circle creating the scalloped edge. To make the embossed circles inside of each scallop, I used my Crop-o-Dile! The small tags were cut with a Sizzix die cut! You'll notice on the bottom of the Barely Banana cardstock, there are little "holes". I used the Paper Piercer and template from the Crafters Tool Kit from Stampin' Up!, as well as the Garden Whimsy stamp set from Stampin' Up!

You know, we have so many tools, and not enough time to use them! Today, take one element of this card and create it! You'll be glad you did.

Remember to stamp, play and create!
