Festive Friday Challenges - World Kindness 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 FF #0096 - World Kindness 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! 

I really like how soft and pretty my card turned out.  I created this card with a colour combination that we used during our World Card Making Day Event - Soft Succulent, Night of Navy and Petal Pink.  It's perfect for a Thank You card for someone special.

Wouldn't you like to receive this card?  I used the Hand Penned Petals Bundle and used flowers, embossing, thank you sentiment, pastel colours and shimmer from the Inspo List.  I know you only have to use 3 items, but it was so easy to use more :)


  1. Cut Night of Navy card stock 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" and score at 4 1/4".  Fold in half to form card base
  2. Cut Petal Pink card stock 4" x 5 1/4".
  3. Cut Basic White card stock 3 3/4" x 5" and emboss using the Timeworn Type Embossing Folder.  Adhere to the Petal Pink card stock.
  4. Adhere to the card base.
  5. Cut out the 3rd largest Scalloped Contour Die using Soft Succulent Shimmer Vellum.
  6. Adhere to the card base using Dimensionals.
  7. Stamp flower on Basic White card stock using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink. 
  8. Colour with Stampin' Blends - Petal Pink, Night of Navy and Soft Succulent.
  9. Cut out using Die.
  10. Adhere to the card base using Dimensionals.
  11. Cut 3" of ribbon and fold in half.  Tuck under bottom right corner of flower and adhere with Glue Dots.
  12. Cut Basic White card stock 3/4" x 2" and stamp sentiment using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.
  13. Cut Night of Navy card stock 1" x 2".  Adhere stamped piece to Night of Navy piece.
  14. Adhere to card base using Dimensionals.
  15. Cut Basic White card stock 4" x 5 1/4"
  16. Stamp sprig in bottom right corner using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.
  17. Colour top with Petal Pink Stampin' Blends
  18. Adhere to inside of card.
