A True[ly] Friend[ly] Set

Okay, I LOVE Stampin' Up!'s current holiday mini-catalog! My favorite set is True Friend. There are so many ways to use it.

Ever get tired of the standard 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 card size? Switch it up and go long ...

Stamps: True Friend, Linen, Three For You Punch Box (greeting)
Paper: River Rock Long Notes, So Saffron Designer Prints, So Saffron, Very Vanilla, Groovy Guava card stock
Inks: So Saffron, River Rock
Markers: Certainly Celery, Cameo Coral
Accessories: Paper piercer, slit punch, 1/16" punch

... or tall ...

Stamps: True Friend
Paper: Wild Wasabi Long Notes, Apple Cider Designer Paper, Very Vanilla and Close To Cocoa card stock
Inks: Wild Wasabi
Markers: Really Rust, Close to Cocoa
Accessories: Wild Wasabi Double-Stitched Ribbon

...or small!

Stamps: True Friend
Paper: Soft Sky Love Notes (3x3), Purely Pomegranate and Whisper White card stock
Ink: Purely Pomegranate
Accessories: Paper Piercer, 1 1/4" Circle Punch, 1 3/8" Circle Punch

And YES, Stampin' Up! has envelopes for these cards. If you get the pre-cut and scored long notes or love notes, you'll get the envelopes, too. If you make your own, use the Small Open-End Envelopes for the Long Notes and the Small Square Envelopes for the Love Notes.

Look at you, posting away!

I love that set too, SO tempting, but I have not bought it because i feel like I have so many flower stamps I still have not used...

I love all three cards! So pretty and I love paper piercing too.

Love how you did all the colors on the flower on the first card.
