Hello Friend Layout

This layout is about my good craft friend, Rachel.  Actually, she is the one who introduced me to cardmaking and then to scrapbooking a few years later. We've also collaborated on many sewing projects.  Notice all the little sewing embellishments I included on the layout. You may also notice the map and compass because unfortunately, she has moved away and we no longer craft together as we did 2-3 times per week. I'm so grateful that I met her because without her encouragement, I simply wouldn't be on this Design Team sharing this with you. She helped me be brave enough to apply to design teams and submit projects to magazines.  I couldn't have done it without her.


 A Closer Look:
 
 


TIP: To add a thin frame around your finished layout, apply coordinating washi tape to the edge of the paper. Attach the tape so that half of it is overhanging the edge and then simply fold it to the back side. Repeat on all four sides of the layout to create a neat and quick instant matting. You need at least 48" of washi tape.


Directions:
1.
Use a sponge applicator to make an ombre blend of teal...green...yellow.
2. Place the inked paper into a floral embossing folder and run it through your machine.
3. Lightly rub a gold ink pad across the surface of the embossed paper to add highlights to the raised image.
4. Tear one edge to reveal the white core color and ink the edge with gold.
5. Finally, adhere dew drop gems to the center of the flowers.
