Cheer up a friend with a cute friend card - this one is courtesy of the fun Happy You Stamp Set from the new Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog (Hostess Collection).
I fell for this stamp set right away - the images are adorable, they can be colored (or not), and their size makes them super easy to crop with many of our punches and dies. Plus, it's a great all occassion stamp set - perfect for beginning stampers and savvy shoppers looking for value and versatility.
Taking my cue from the little rain boot, I punched circles and randomly adhered them to my card base for an interesting tone-on-tone background. Next I embossed polka dots on the Summer Starfruit panel that was die-cut using the scallop border from the Adorning Accents Edgelits.
The strip of patterned paper is from the sweet new Comfort Cafe Designer Series Paper collection. Hard to see in the photos, but this pattern features a subtle "stitched look".
Behind the focal image, I created my own scallop circle by layering two "flowers" cropped with the Fancy Flower punch; the perfect size for my (1-3/4" circle) punched image.
