Friend You Da Best

Hello crafty friends. Thanks for coming back to another tutorial. Today I will be showing you how to make this card. I got the color combinations from Kristina Warner’s series. I wanted to use darker color combos because I liked how to the silver embossing powder popped off of it. So I came across her samples on youtube and I was sooo excited to try it out. So let’s get started.

I used the color combinations of Chipped Sapphire, Pine Needles and Twisted Citron. These are the oxide distress inks. They have such a creamy application that, to me, makes applying smoother. I started with the Chipped Sapphire and blending the ink upward. Remembering I need to blend these colors in a way that would seem seeming less so I used a lighter touch so that the color wouldn’t be so dark. Once I thought I had the right application with that color, I went onto Pine Needles. Applied it the same way and then lastly I used Twisted Citron. I went back to a few spots to blend out the colors that didn’t blend well the first round.


Once I made sure my panel was dried from the ink, I applied some silver embossing powder after I used a good amount of my anti static tool and heat set it.

I cut out SSS Big Friend die cut approx 5 times because I wanted the dimension. I glued them on top of each other with spray glue. I saw Cathy Zielske use it in some of her tutorials and wanted to try it out. I used a sentiment from CZ Design Emphatic CZ16 stamp set. I used white embossing powder and I used Pretty Pink Posh’s Clear Confetti Mix to finish my card off.

That’s it! This card was very fun to make. If you haven’t checked our Kristina’s color combos, you need to. Thank you for stopping by. Hope to see you next time.
