Beautiful Friendship

I created this card for a special friend whose birthday is being celebrated tomorrow. I hope she likes it!

The band slides off, and the card is unfolded to reveal the message inside. I love the patterns of the Florentine paper--they lend themselves perfectly for creating the belly band of this card. I picked one of the beautiful stripes that had a scallop beneath which I hand trimmed. The colors are rich and elegant, perfect for so many occasions.

Paper: Florentine, Colonial White, Creme Brulee and Cocoa cardstock
Stamps: B1400 Beautiful Friendship
Inks: Chocolate Exclusive Inks
Embellishments: Shimmer Brads
