The Power of Two

One of my friends and I love to get up early in the morning and meet for coffee whenever we can.  It’s a great way for us to get in some “girl time” before the day takes off.  So the sentiment on the front of my card celebrates this time .  The card is 5 1/2 x 5 1/2

Inside I used Karen Burniston’s Garden Bench Pop It Ups die to create this scene.  (Stamp is from Art Impressions)  The die comes with the flowers and grass (and more!) 

To keep “our feet on the ground” I used the grass and few flowers – and a box behind it.  There’s also a box behind the image to keep it steady.

Can you see them?  One on the bench and one on the ground.

Stamp Set – Perfect Blend,  Yippee-Skippee, Coffee BFFs (AI)
Card stock – Crisp Cantaloupe, Pistachio Pudding, Pool Party, Whisper White, Sweet Sorbet DSP (SA
Ink – Jet Black Stazon
Etc – Garden Bench and Agatha Edges Pop It Ups, Oval Punch, Oval Framelit, Candy dots

Now if only the snow would melt so we could sit on a garden bench.  Hugs, Fran
