Friends' Day

June 8 is Best Friend's Day and this Sunday's challenge at 613 Ave. C is to make a special card for a friend.  The sponsor, Flat Friends' Boutique, had this image of a crafter using her heart punch... couldn't resist!
"Love Punch" can be found here at Flat Friends' Boutique
Check out the homages to a friend by the other DT's HERE, and then get crackin' on your entries in the challenge.  You can submit up to three for a  chance at a prize from one of the sponsors.
  • For the focal image - I colored it with Copics, fussy cut and 'paper sculpted' the head which is then elevated with foam tape to achieve dimension.
  • Hello is by SU.
  • Neenah "Classic Crest Solar White" 80# Cover Wt. used for the image.
  • Georgia Pacific used for embellishments. 
  • Plaid background is from stash.
  •  I had a vision of burying her desk in craft supplies and piles of paper (so it looks like mine!), but I ran into problems finding things that were small enough.  I finally ended up cutting a slender strip of CS into 5/8" lengths to stack on the end of her desk - now we're getting there!  LOL!
  • I added a length of ribbon left over from the bow on the card, glitter to one of the hearts, a tiny lavender button brad, 3 little glue on blings and 3 punched hearts for the front of the card.  The punch image is part of the original image.
  • Inside consists of left over papers from the front and a quote re friends. 

  • Images were printed on an Epson WF-3520 printer 
  • Hand colored with Copics:
