When you get the new Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog in your hands, what is the first thing you look for?  Usually, I go to the back and look at all the new accessories. This year, however, looking through the new catalog, I fell in love with a bunch of new stamp sets. The Beautiful Friendship stamp set really stood out to me. I couldn’t wait to get my hands on it and start playing! I needed a few thank you cards so this is the card I created.

The main card is Rococo Rose with a layer of Smoky Slate. First I stamped the Birch stamp on a layer of Whisper White cardstock.  Doesn’t the Birch background stamp make the perfect layer (stamped with Smoky Slate) behind the flowers from the Beautiful Friendship stamp set?  Then I stamped the Beautiful Friendship flower layer with Seaside Spray, Rococo Rose, Pear Pizzaz and Rich Razzleberry (for the center of the roses and stamped off once for the floral spray randomly stamped to fill in). The sentiment is from the set Parcels & Petals (another favorite! but more on this set later). The Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon finishes this card off just right don’t you think? I stamped the bottom corner of the envelope with the flowers because a stamped envelope is a nice way to finish off your cards.

This Beautiful Friendship stamp set has wonderful detail which makes it very easy to make beautiful cards. Pick your three colors and start creating! All supplies to make the card is listed below.
