Inspirational Friendship Card for Festive Friday

Don’t we all know someone who makes the world a better place, simply because they are in it? Why not send this inspirational friendship card to them to let them know how you feel? It’s time to play at Festive Friday – Home of the Inspo List!

For this week’s challenge,  we are inspired by World Kindness Day.  Remember – at Festive Friday, you do not need to actually celebrate the occasion.  Your goal is to simply use three or more items from the inspiration list on your project.  I used pearls, embossing, die cut, pattern paper, ribbon, sentiment, and world globe on my card this week.  I can’t wait to see what YOU create!

The Stampin’ Schach Design Tips

Today’s card incorporates two of my favorite things: the Detailed Dove dies and the Tasteful Textile 3D embossing folder.  I can’t say enough about this embossing folder. It definitely imparts texture while staying subtle. It has become my new “go-to” embossing folder.

Of course, the focal point of this card is the stunning dove die cut. As I mentioned in another post,  I almost did not buy the Dove of Hope bundle, which includes these fabulous Detailed Dove dies. Oh my gosh!  Am I ever happy I did! I plan on featuring it on some of the holiday cards I sent out this year.  My husband loves using the new Stampin’ Cut & Emboss machine, so he will be in charge of die cutting the doves.
