Hello Friend – by Heidi Blankenship

Published by at 8 00 am under General Purpose Cards,Prima,Spellbinders

The card Heidi shares with us today is fit for a princess!  Well, it should be as the paper pad used is from the Princess Collection by Prima — and so very pretty it is! Heidi’s Hello Friend card is another quick one to make. The sheet of paper chosen sets the tone and then it is embellished with a band of silk ribbon, and a combination of both purchased pre-made flowers and die cut flowers. Several different Spellbinders Die D-Lites are used for the sentiment, background label and floral cluster, making this card all come together very quickly. Take a look:

Note the pretty Sparklet inside the die cut flower.

And I must apologize, but the graphics Prima provides for their paper pads just do NOT do them justice – ever. You can get a much better feel for the paper by viewing Heidi’s card sample above.
