Congratulations, Friend

Good afternoon! Today after school I made a color-blocked card for the latest challenge at CAS-ual Fridays.

I chose a cute tree image stamp that has been in my stash for a while, although I don't think I have ever used it before. Stamps with lots of positive space (ya know, where the ink will go) kind of scare me because it is more difficult to get a good impression. I used a trick I learned to flip the cardstock over and rub it over the stamp- it worked pretty well!

I went with some fun coordinating colors for the trees, and adhered them to the card with foam tape. I also used my scalloped scissors to make a decorative edge on the card.



The "friend" part of the sentiment is from my trusty "Mini Card Creations II" set from SP and Co, found here.

So glad you could visit!
