Friendship a la flower!

I have another quick and easy card for you today. I love it when I come out of my stamp room with a collection of cards that look clean and are simple to create. One of my favourite things to do to take a card to the next step is by creating a double embossed border. I have a few tutorials on just how to do that listed in my sidebar to the right of your screen (click the ones with nestabilities in the title).

When I decide to use embossed frames on my card I actually start with the frame and then I stamp. I like knowing my space and working within in.



Recipe
Stamp Set(s): Flower Stem by Wise Owl by PTI, Spiral Bouquet by PTI

Cardstock:
Stampers Select White by PTI
Ink: Pear Dew Drop by Momento
Accents: Yellow, teal buttons from MME, red button from MM

Tools: Rectangle Nestabilities by Spellbinders


Have a terrific day!

P.S. If you are trying to contact me by e-mail I am currently in the process of transfering all my files to a different computer and will not have access... Good thing blogger allows for advanced posting :)
