A sympathy card was needed recently and, since I've been playing with Christmas products lately, I literally had no idea what I wanted to make. When my eyes landed on the Beautiful Friendship stamp set, I knew that was the one to use.
Listen up! I'm only going to say this one time (that's a lie . . . I'll say it over and over, I'm sure) . . . if you buy no other stamp set from the current Stampin' Up! catalog, let it be Beautiful Friendship. Unless you have a rare disorder that makes you hate flowers, you will 💕 this gorgeous set. You cannot make a mess with the flowers. Whether you choose to use one or two of the floral images to make a simple design OR use several (or all) of them to cover your project, you cannot go wrong. I had absolutely no preconceived notion of how my card should look when I was finished, and just look at how pretty it turned out! I just willy-nilly chose to work with Flirty Flamingo, Highland Heather, and Old Olive, and I love this card.
If you look closely at the images in the set, you'll not find one that looks like the stacked leaves featured on my card. That fantastic filler was an accidental blessing, and I think the leaves look so pretty stamped like that. Following is a closer view:
I was having so much fun stamping the flowers and leaves that I had to stamp the layer inside the card. The envelope was decorated, too, but it shows a little better in the first photo.
