Festive Friday Challenge - International Friendship Day

It's time for another Festive Friday Challenge!  Every second Friday we post a challenge for you with a specific theme and an Inspo List of 10 items to choose from to create your project.  We encourage you to create a project based on the theme and Inspo List and then post it using at least 3 items from the inspiration list.

This week’s challenge #FF0088 International Friendship Day.

Your goal is to simply use three or more items from the inspiration list on your project and link up! #festivefridaychallenge  At Festive Friday, you do not need to actually celebrate the occasion. I hope you’ll make a card, scrapbook page or 3-D project and join us. You don’t need a blog to enter Festive Friday. Check out this link on how you can play along with this challenge. If you want help entering, please email me at stampinwithmelva@gmail.com and I’d be happy to help you! 



For today's challenge I created a shaker card using the Biggest Wish Stamp Set and the Shaker Shapes. I used a friendship sentiment, ribbon and pink for my card this week!


Instructions

  1. Cut Thick Basic White cardstock 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" and fold in half to form cardbase.
  2. Cut Polished Pink cardstock 4" x 5 1/4" and adhere to the card base using Stampin' Seal.
  3. Cut Basic White cardstock 3 3/4" x 5"
  4. Insert into a Medium Clear Envelope.  Push all the way to the bottom corner.
  5. Fold over the long side and use Tear and Tape Adhesive to adhere down.
  6. Add Shaker Shapes to the envelope and seal.
  7. Wrap ribbon around left hand side of envelope and tie a bow.
  8. Adhere to the Polished Pink cardstock using Tear and Tape adhesive.
  9. Stamp sentiment using Polished Pink ink on a piece of Basic White cardstock.  
  10. Cut out using Paper Snips and adhere to card base using Stampin' Seal.
  11. Stamp sentiment on Polished Pink cardstock using Polished Pink ink.
  12. Cut out using Paper Snips and adhere to card base using Dimensionals.

All of the supplies to make this card are available in my Online Store.
