Beautiful Friendship with some ‘block’ stampin’ ~ Video Tutorial

Welcome back to my corner of the world

Today’s card was inspired by my dear friend, Elly, of Ellymentry Papercrafting, in the UK.  She did her first facebook live a couple of weeks ago and created a card using a stamp to build up a trellis for her flowers.  Well I did not have that stamp  so set about working out how I could stamp some thin lines – and viola – it came to me in a flash……… the side edge of an acrylic block would be just perfect!

Beautiful Friendship Thank You

The Beautiful Friendship Stamp set allows you to build up such a pretty floral display as well as 4 very useful greetings, I chose to use the birthday one on this card, the lovely smooth, silky woven threads trim works just beautifully with it.
