'Hello, Friend' card

I love paper crafting with my French friend, Nathalie Durand (  We do lots of stamping, distressing, making cards and mini-albums, babbling about daily things and living in Singapore.  One thing worth mentioning is that this lady is always so efficient in making cards.  She can make six cards out from scratch whereas I can barely finish two within two hours.  Yesterday, however, I made three cards, which had never happened before.  I guess not over-thinking or overrunning your mind flow is very important.  In other words, focus, focus, focus.

And one of the cards I made. It's a bit cute but not over the top.  Quite simple actually.

1. Make white card base
2. Make a shiny pink panel that is slightly smaller than the card base. Leave it and don't adhere to card base yet.

3. Make a white rectangle panel a bit smaller than the pink panel. Emboss it with Cuttlebug. Adhere it to the pink panel. Then adhere the to card base. 
4. Stamp bottle, Hello Friend and heart on a piece of white paper. Trim around the shape of the bottle. 
5. Find a cute patterned paper from cardstock and trim it.  Adhere to card. Adhere the bottle to card with foam tape.

Tools used:

Paper Trimmer, Scoring board, scissors, adheresive (glue or glue tape), Cuttlebug embossing machine and embossing folder, acrylic block (for stamping), foam tape.
