Coffee with Friends

 There is nothing like having coffee wih friends, a time to share bad times, good times , to share accomplishments etc. This stamp set struck a chord with me and the card I made today will be mailed to a friend I used to have coffee with before she moved away.

For the background I used the scraps from Regency Park DSP.

To do this I added an adhesive sheet over a 4 by 3" piece of Basic White card stock. I had already cut left over pieces of the Regency Park DSP into various sizes of strips. I laid these strips at an angle side by side until the entire cardstock piece was covered. Because the strips had spaces between them I applied Gilded Flakes over these spaces, creating a lovely guilded effect.  After the excess pieces were cut off, I matted it with a slightly larger piece of Crushed Curry card stock, followed by Balmy Blue card stock, which was then mounted onto an A2 Night of Navy card base. Some 1/8" gold trim was added to the Background piece before it was added to the card base.

The image was stamped onto Basic White cardstock, coloured with Stampin' Blends and then die cut with a Deckled Die. This piece was matted with gold glitter cardstock and then Night of Navy. Dimensionals were used between the two layers. A bow of gold trim was added to the bottom of  the image piece.

The sentiment, from the stamp set, was die cut using the Stylish die (circle)
