Pinkfresh Studio {Forever True Forever Friends}

I can't believe we're already saying goodbye to February! I realize that it DOES have the shortest amount of days, but still it seems like the month has whizzed by! I have a really busy March ahead, so I was happy that I snuck some time to get my St. Patrick's Day decorating done in the house and do a bit of a refresh in the main living areas! I knew if I didn't get it done then, it most likely wouldn't happen!

For today's card, I chose to use the new Friendship Blooms Layering Stencils, but this time with the coordinating Friendship Blooms stamp set to add the gold embossed  outline around the flowers.  When I made THIS card, I only used the stencils so I was excited to try this today! 

Something I learned from the first time I used this set, is that all the flowers and leaves can be stenciled at one time onto a panel measuring 4 1/4 inches by 5 1/2. They have the guides in the corner just like the background stencils which makes lining it up a breeze!

Once the stenciled panel was complete I was able to do all of the outline heat embossing quickly and easily. I used the coordinating Friendship Blooms dies to get everything cut out. I set those aside and got to work on the background. I really liked how the Sunburst background looked on the slimline card, so I decided to try the A2 version using the Layered Sunburst Stencil set

I chose to use another complimentary color combination because they're just easy and I don't have to think too much! ha ha! These colors also remind me of Pansies that I usually begin planting in my porch pots this time of year!

I heat embossed the sentiment in gold to accent the gold details of the flowers.

I wrapped the vellum around the background panel and secured it in the back using tape. 

I added some jewels to finish it off! Thanks for fluttering by!

I’m with you, February seemed to come and go, so fast. We have so many new birds that have stopped by this year, we’re loving every minute- especially in the morning. So Spring is definitely on it’s way. Yippee! Kelly, I love your card. And I’m especially loving the new stenciled flowers, it makes card making so much easier. Your flowers are so beautiful, they look like you spent a lot of time on them and they really Bloom, with the sunburst background! Wonderful design!! 💖👏
