Hi, crafty friends! It’s May here with a set of friendship cards featuring the Geometric Flowers stamp set.

I wanted to create a card with a traditional Christmas color combo, green and red, but not necessarily just for a holiday card.

I started by stamping one geometric image from the Geometric Flowers stamp set repeatedly with Forest Glades Ink on A2 sized green cardstock to create my own pattern.

I colored my images partially with the Forest Glades marker from the Artist Markers Set A. Then I added some dots between the images with a white gel pen and adhered some gemstones to the center of each image.

I die cut the letters, X and O, out of Gold Foil cardstock using the Bold Alphabet die set and attached die-cut letters on the card front using foam tape.

Next, I heat embossed the sentiment from the Halftone Hearts stamp set with Pure White embossing powder on a piece of Dark Gray cardstock.

After cutting my sentiment in a thin banner, I foam mounted it over my die-cut letters.

This card features many different techniques: stamped background, tone-on-tone stamping, partial coloring, die cutting, dotting, and heat embossing. However, it’s super easy to make. :)

That’s all for today. Hope my cards inspire you to create something today. Happy crafting!
