Hi everybody and welcome back to my second Girl Friday post on the CAS-ual Fridays Stamps Blog this month!!
October is Cancer Awareness Month and the Michele (the owner) has coloured the blog pink for the whole month. She has some products called the Calling All Sistah's Collection and they consist of stamps and dies with lots of of supportive and uplifting sentiments, and images to send to people in your life. She gives 50% of the proceeds of these products to Breast Cancer Research and for this month has increased this to 75%!!
For my card I was in a die-cutting mood and also wanted to use one of my favourite sentiments:
I definitely wanted to have a 'pink' theme with my card and wanted a pretty background for this tough message.
I started by stamping the Full On Floral background stamp in pink across the card front. Using the Ruffled Ribbon Fri-Die, I die-cut it from pink and grey paint chips. These were slightly over-lapped and adhered to the card front.
For the sentiment I die-cut the Friend Fri-Die from silver CS and also twice more from white CS. These were all glued together for dimension and then to the card front. The rest of the sentiment (which is my favourite and from the Calling All Sistah's stamp set) was heat embossed in silver on a strip of white CS and then popped on foam tape. And of course I had to add some sequins from the Sistahood Sparkle Sequin Mix for a bit of sparkle.
If you like any of the products I used today and are thinking about purchasing them, don't forget to use my Girl Friday code to save yourself 15%!!
Thanks so much for stopping by. My week has finished and I'm looking forward to another long weekend (Monday is a holiday, yippee!!). Fingers crossed I can fit in some card making during the weekend and I hope you can too when it finally rolls around in your part of the world!
