I received a Stampin Up catalog a few months ago and I absolutely loved one of the cards on the cover. After sitting and staring at it a number of times and asking my Stampin Up consultant how it was created, I made my version. I totally give all credit to Stampin Up, I didn't use their products (only because I didn't have what I needed!!), but I totally used their design! So, be inspired, but always give credit where credit is due!!! : ) P.S. If you would like to order Stampin Up, I'll be having a book party in January. You can view their catalog online through the Stampin Up website.
First, I cut the bracket shape out using the Cricut and SCAL. I glued strips of scrap paper to the shape. I cut around the strips with an exacto knife. Second, I cut the same shap out, only smaller and glued it to the middle. I printed the word "friend" out on the computer and cut it apart then glued it haphazardly. I stampted a a flower from some misc. stamps I had and colored with pastels. I added some bling with the blue jewels.
This is the greeting inside. It is from a stamp set from PaperTrey Ink called "Signature Greetings".
