Directions to make this card:
1 - Mask off rectangles and sponge inks in rainbow order to create vertical elements.
2 - Choose a large Happy Birthday sentiment and balloon images to stamp but decide to cut a stitched border before stamping.
3 - Make the Big Shot sandwich and totally fail to notice that there is a die stuck to the underside of the top plate.........
because there is cardstock being used as a shim on top of the plate which hides the rogue die!
4 - Run your sandwich with the stowaway die through the Big Shot and end up with a stitched frame AND the word friend cut out in the middle of your project!
5 - Swear......loud enough so the Big Guy hollers "What's wrong?"
6 - Head to the kitchen for a bowl of ice cream then return to craft room fortified and ready to start all over.
7 - Look at the ruined card front still on the desk and think......"Wait maybe I can save this!"
8 - A bit of trimming, a switch to butterflies and flowers, and a bit more diecutting and a new creation is born!
Whew this stamping stuff is hard work!
