Fabulous Phrases Friend Card

Fabulous Phrases is a great set for building sentiments. With 30 words, you are sure to find something for any occasion. I love the font too! I put several of the words together to create a friend card. I saw a card similar to this on Pinterest, and I knew Fabulous Phrases would be a perfect fit.

I can't get enough of the Sycamore Street Designer Series Paper from the Sale-A-Bration catalog! The colors are nice and bright, which I love! This confetti design is one of my favorite patterns in the pack. I also love that this paper is available for free with a qualifying order!

In the Sale-A-Bration catalog, there is also fabulous matching ribbon, that would have been perfect on this card. Unfortunately, I don't own it (yet), so I improvised. I colored my Whisper White Baker's Twine with my Calypso Coral Classic ink pad. I used a sponge to loosely hold the twine against the ink pad, and pulled it through several times until I got the coverage I liked. Then I dried it with my heat tool. Make sure it's dry or you will have an inky card and inky fingers!

I stamped the words, hand cut them out, and then popped them up with Stampin' Dimensionals. The Summer Starfruit flower is punched from with a flower punch from Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack.
