So Lucky You're My Friend

I'm super excited to be guest designing for My Favorite Things! You'll find me on the MFT blog today and tomorrow. 

I've got a couple of goodies whipped up using their fabulous February release. For today, I have a sweet and simple friendship card using the Stitched Rainbow Die-namics along with the Lucky stamps and Lucky Die-namics dies. I love making cards with rainbows! I find with all of that color, it makes sense to keep the rest of the card simple, so rainbows can be an especially good option for quick cards and multiples.

I die-cut the Stitched Rainbow from watercolor paper and did some loose watercoloring in rainbow colors. I love the whimsical look of the watercoloring. I offset the assembled rainbow on a white card stock panel, popped up some cloud die-cuts from the Lucky Die-namics set, then trimmed off the overhang before layering onto a white, top-fold card base.

I love the sentiments in Lucky and am having serious font envy. As in, I totally want my handwriting to look JUST like that! Isn't it just so fun and charming?! I stamped the friendship sentiment in black ink onto the white card panel for a nice, crisp look.

With clean and simple cards, often the appeal is in the small details. Here, I've added a few wood veneer stars around the sentiment. The machine-stitched borders are another subtle detail that packs a whole lot of punch.

Thanks so much for visiting!
