Friends Circle Card

You Shine Card

This card is also great for masculine recipients.


  • Cut a sheet of Imaginisce Black Tie RAINDROP REFLECTIONS into the desired card shape. My card here measures 6" x 6" when folded.

  • On the front of the card cut a semi circle from the top-right corner as shown. Trim the back top right-hand corner with a corner rounder for a rounded edge.

  • Ink all edges with black ink.

  • Cut a 3-Dimensional star on QuicKutz Silhouette from the reverse side of the leftover Imaginisce paper and assemble. Add an eyelet to the top and attach red/Gold/Black fibre from the Basic Grey Mellow Fibre pack. Stick on the star and attach the fibre with a decorative staple.

  • Add the title. I used the "You" sticker from Daisy D's Attic Heirlooms Sentiments and printed "Shine" from Microsoft Word. Add a white Dovecraft Medium Brad to the "Shine" title.

The picture does not do this card justice!

  • Cover the front of the card in Gin-X "Dotted Dip-Sticks" paper with the lines running vertically. Cut a piece of the paper out and glue it to the bottom half with the lines running horizontally.
  • Glue a length of Bumblebee Rick Rack along the join.
  • Cut a triangle of Honeydew Bazzill and attach a brad in each corner. Stamp or write freehand a message on the fold - I wrote freehand using a Sakura Black Gelly Roll pen. Glue to the card so that it looks like a fold in the card but leave the top open.
  • Stick suitable embellishments to the card, including heart buttons that cascade from the fold at the top of the card. I used AMM stickers, 3D Decorative stickers, Dress-It-Up Heart buttons, plus Prima Got Flowers with a dot of Gold Stickles Glitter glue in the centre.

Beary Thank You

This gorgeous bear brings lots of flowers to the recipient. The card is suitable for lots of different occasions and the sentiment can be changed to suit.


Get Well Card

Decoupage Design. The backgrounds emulates the colours from the decoupage design.




A very economical card to make for a friend.

  • On a plain white tall thin card a length of HOTP ribbon was attached from top to bottom - I used disappearing glue so as not to have any visible traces through the ribbon.
  • Next I drew a vase on a piece of gold scrap card and after cutting it out indented a rim on the top. Four large sunflowers were positioned onto the card and the vase stuck on top. Next I used a leaf punch and punched out the shapes using the same scrap card as I used for the vase. I drew the veins on the leaves with a gold metallic pen and stuck them onto the vase.
  • Finally a chalked tag was embellished with a suitable sentiment and stuck onto the top of the card.

TIP: When you attach a border ensure that any embellishment is positioned centrally in the remaining body, and not centrally on the card.
