"A True Friend" card

I had a fabulous weekend scrapbooking with my bestie Patty. It was nice to catch up (we haven't seen each other in months), laugh and of course make cards. I shared with her some fabulous techniques and tips that I have learned and have begun using in my own projects. Here is the first the "new" Tim Holtz distress stains. Love them, can't say enough about them. I took my white eyelet and ran the Peeled Paint, Faded Jeans, Wild Honey and Antique Linen distress inks over the top of it and just that quick we have a very cool distressed inked lace to place on our card. I attached my lace to a strip of the Stella Rose "Hattie" paper with my Tim Holtz tiny attacher.

Now on to the flower. It is from my Flower Quickutz Die that I cut from a piece of kraft paper and then I cut it a part, used it as a template BUT.... I took the petals, made some of them smaller so they would have a progressive look. Traced them on to my printed paper and cut them out with my sissors. (You can use the petals as they are, make them smaller) I used my McGill Paper Blossom Tool kit and mat to roll all of the petals that I had inked. I glued them to a small snowflake placing the larger petals on the bottom and the smaller ones to the top.
Once I had them all glued into place and the glue had dried I painted all of the petals with Tim Holtz Rocky Candy so it would become stiff and shiny. Allow it to dry completely and then glue it to the top of your card. My sentiment is a Kaisercraft. NOW... I want to encourage you to go to Scrapbookaholic by Abby and check out the challenge that she is having on her blog, all of the details are posted there. My DT project is HERE if you would like to see what I made.
