Our 3rd set called MINKIE FRIENDS gives you the opportunity to show appreciation to all of your friends who have stood by your side.

Today I'm showcasing Minkie Friends with this firendship card.  I stenciled the background with Distress Oxide ink. Image colored with Copic markers, fussy cut and popped with foam adhesive.  This set is so much fun to color.

So This is Love - Valentine's Card TGF

 Hello Friends!! 

I can't believe how fast January went by and how cold it's getting (at least here in Cincinnati)!  With Valentine's approaching fast I wanted to create a special card for the occasion using the adortable set So This is Love.  I wanted to tell a love story through the years, with the couple falling in love, having a good life and still being in love when they are older.  I do hope to grow old and always have my husband and best friend to share the journey.  



I created this card with a 4.25 x 5.5 white Copic Xpress cardstock.  I used the window frame die to guide me and stamp the images and sentiment.  They were colored with Copic Markers and created little scenes behind them. 



For the sentiment I colored with Distress Oxide ink with a blending brush. I added a heart stitched detail from Lawn Fawn  and a few enamel pearls.    The red stitched window frame from Mama Elephant was popped with foam adhesive.   



I hope I have inspired you to make a Valentine's card for your sweathearts.  

XOXO!
