Friend, I'm Always Here For You

Hello! Stopping by with a card for a couple of the challenges at the My Favorite Things Challenge and Inspiration Blog! Love when it works out perfectly to combine two different challenges!

First up, the sketch...(I interpreted it a bit loosely, but if you look, you can find the elements. There are 5 horizontal banners in the sketch, and I have 3 strips of cardstock under my die cut element, the word friend, and the stamped sentiment below - 5 horizontal elements, all clustered at the bottom where the banners are on the sketch!):

Next up, the Color Challenge - love this color combo!

I used MFT cardstock in each of the colors, and Die-namics Friend die to cut the negative, layering the other colors at an angle underneath. Added a couple rows of messy stitching just to set it off a little better. Tore the bottom edge, added an additional sentiment with White Pigment ink from LJD Words of Inspiration (I forgot to take a photo, but I also stamped the additional "Nothing is impossible with God" sentiment on the inside) Rounded a couple corners, added a Hemp Cord bow attached with staples to the top, and softened the edges with a little additional white ink sponged on. You might also be able to see, I also coordinated the inside by adding 3 strips of the cardstock on the bottom, and stamped the additional sentiment I mentioned above in kraft ink.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful day!!!


  1. Love the strips in the negative cut and the torn bottom. I like the colors on the inside too!

  2. This is awesome Heather! I love the way you put the stripes behind the die cut!

  3. Love your FUN card, there's just something about a hand torn edge that looks awesome!

  4. I love the fun design of your card! Those stripes on the angle are great and so are the details like the stitching, staples, and torn edge!

  5. awesome design and a fabulous take on the sketch! love how you used those colors, too! thanks so much for playing along with MFT Color Challenge #16!

  6. Loose interps are totally chill! I love that. I'm that girl that never really follows directions. :) Love how you dressed up the inside, too. xoxo
