Be Inspired 42 National Friendship Day

This week at Cuttlebug Challenge Blog we are celebrating national friendship day August 2 2009 by creating a special gate fold card. I used the gorgeous new Victoria embossing folder from cuttlebug. The DT received a wonderful assortment of paper from coredinations, and I just couldn't resist embossing the whitewash paper and giving it a light sanding to reveal the gorgeous blue core. For the flowers on my card I cut out circles of multiple colors and hand cut the stems, and stitched them in place. the leaves are the sizzix sizlit die and the large "best friend" snap is from making memories. I chose to keep the closure of the card simple by adding a pretty organza ribbon tied in a knot.
Take a quick trip to cuttlebug challenge to see all the rest of the teams cards, you will be in for a treat!
