This card was created for a graduation card for one of my friends. I used some retired SU! patterned paper for the background and the Great Friend stamp set (#113792) from the new mini! I stamped "for you" in Whisper White Craft Ink on Chocolate Chip cardstock. The fun shape of this centerpiece was created using the Matchbox Bigz XL Die (#114890) from the mini as well. I layered the piece on pop dots and stamped upward from corner to corner the leaf from the Great Friend set. I added a little ribbon from the last sale-a-bration and some Prima flowers.
To make things a little interesting, I rounded opposing corners only of the Chocolate Chip and Whisper White cardstock on the center part of the card. When you decorate an edge or corner, don't think you have to do all sides. It makes it more interesting, I think, when you do something a little unconventional. Just a little tip!
Have a wonderful Monday and be sure to stop back soon! Thank you for visiting today!
