Thank you friend

Hello! Just a quick post today to show case a clean and simple card I made using the free die I got from My Favorite Things because I spent too much money again! LOL!

It really is a cool die too, just lay it across your A2 card base and run it through your die cutting machine to get the "friend" to cut out perfectly!

I used some striped designer paper behind it from Authentique. There are sooo many variations that you could use this die with and so many different papers. The possibilities are pretty endless.

The thank you is from Avery Elle. Now, the green dots are re-purposed pony beads that I melted down in the oven. I have a whole bag full of colors now! Check out You-Tube for directions, oven temps, etc. The only thing is I wish, is that it was easier to apply them. Which glue do you use if you make them yourself?

Thanks for stopping by! I'm entering this into the following challenges below.
djkardkreations: NBUS
Simon Says Stamp: Anything goes

I love this, Laurie! I'm thinking you were a pretty good customer to get a free die like this, lol!! The problem with running a NBUS challenge is that I then get tempted by the fabulous NBUS of all my friends! Thank you so much for playing again in my NBUS Challenge #3!! Hugs, Darnell

Laurie, I had never heard of Pony Beads so had to go check them out! :-)

I love the clean and simple lines of your card and the DSP you used behind the friend really does make it pop.

So glad you joined us at the Paper Players this week
