Stamp “best” image from Stampin’ Up! Happy Wishes stamp set in Basic Black Archival Ink on Whisper White card stock.  Color with Powder Pink and Old Olive Stampin’ Write Markers.  Carefully crop “best” image with Paper Snips.  

Adhere “best” image with Stampin Dimensionals to a Whisper White oval created with the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies and a Powder Pink scalloped oval created with the Layering Ovals Framelits Dies.

Crop stems from Old Olive card stock using Petals & More Thinlits Dies and the Big Shot.  I recommend using the Precision Base Plate with detailed dies like this and running through the Big Shot several times.  A Big Shot Die Brush makes removal of the die cut and “bits” easier.

Using Snail adhesive, attach stem to the base of the oval element.  Adhere to a 3″ x 4″ piece of vellum.  I love the soft finish vellum adds.

Adhere vellum with Stampin’ Dimensionals to card base.

Stamp “friends” (Happy Wishes) with VersaMark Ink on a 2 1/8″ x 5/8″ piece of Basic Black card stock.  Heat emboss with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and a Heat Tool.  Add a pearl (Pearl Basic Jewels) and adhere sentiment as shown with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
