Friends 24/7 in Blue and Chocolate

Here is another card from my recent Stamp-A-Stack using a very popular set, Friends 24/7. And what a beautiful set it is! It includes this bird as well as a lovely damask stamp and others, six stamps in all.

I stamped the bird in Close to Cocoa on Whisper White cardstock then stamped the damask image in Sahara Sand around the bird like a background stamp. I added some color with the Stampin' Pastels and a cotton-tip swab, punched the corners with the Ticket Corner Punch and layered this onto Chocolate Chip with the corners also punched.

The card base is Sahara Sand. On a piece of Bordering Blue, I rolled the Friendly Words Jumbo Wheel in Sahara Sand for a very suble effect and adhered it to the card. A piece of chocolate dotted DSP was added to the base and Chocolate grosgrain ribbon was added to cover the seam between the two papers.

"Here for You" was stamped in Chocolate Chip on a small piece of Bordering Blue then punched out with the 1 1/4" circle punch and layered onto a 1 3/8" circle of white. This was layered on a Chocolate Chip punched scallop circle and dotted with the White Signo Gel Pen.

The bird piece was adhered to the upper blue portion of the card and the scallop circle adhered with Dimensionals.
