I have had this brand new bundle “Fry Friends” from Fun Stampers Journey sitting around for the last three weeks. Last night, my best bud spent the night, and when we got up this morning, I said, “Do you want to make a card?” Of course he said, “YES!” So, I pulled out Fry Friends and he chose the shake and fries along with the sentiment. He wanted to make his card for his friend, Gloria. Here he is working away.

Here is his finished card.

He is very excited to give her this handmade card.

My card design was based on Freshly Made Sketches Card Challenge #271. Here is the card sketch:

I had some scraps let over from my recent Make It classes and pulled together a simple and cute card for someone special. The base of the card is FSJ Whip Cream as well as the 5 1/8″ x 3 7/8″ mat. The mat has been scored diagonally (my photography skills do not showcase the diagonally scored lines, but they are there). The strips of paper are cut from Watermelon Fusion and Cranberry Bliss FSJ cardstock. The pierced circle is cut from FSJ Bubble Gum cardstock with FSJ pierced circle dies. The fries and shake are colored with FSJ Color Burst Pencils. This is a super quick card to make on the go.

I think this would make a great Make It card for either a class or a party.

At the end of last month, my cousin, Barbara Helms, celebrated her 40th birthday (her birthday is actually in September). I couldn’t make it to the celebration, but I sent her this card, which was a total CASE from K Werner Designs on YouTube. My friend and cohort, Cheyenne Luken, purchased Lawn Fawn’s So Smooth stamp set, and we went about making a shaker card. We both had to start over from scratch (note here: do not use alcohol markers to blacken the edge of cut cardstock – it bleeds).

Anyway, we completed the card and I thought it was the perfect card to send to my cousin. As many of you know, I don’t send cards, I hoard them. I am trying to get better about this. Here is the card we made and I sent to Barbara:
