Beautiful Friendship for a Lovely Birthday Card

Front view of Beautiful Friendship birthday card

Beautiful Friendship stamp set by Stampin’ Up! is a new product in this year’s annual catalog.  And, I am in serious love with it.  The newly designed line of Distinktive stamps has had appeal for me since its introduction.  However, sometimes I have problems getting the impression just as I like it!  There is no such issue with this stamp set!  And, if you love using a Masking technique, Beautiful Friendship is perfect for it!

I loved making this card so much that I want to share it with two challenges…

I hope you like this card a fraction of the enjoyment received in its making.  The Stamparatus aligning tool made it so easy to make several focal images.  So much so that I will be sharing more cards with you this week.  Hopefully, you will come back to see me.  In the meanwhile…

Have fun stamping!
