I bought a new EK Success Punch today with some bowling winnings and decided to make a card to send to a True Friend.
I made a border for the card and added a flourish from the Cricut Wedding Solutions Cartridge. I cut it at 2 inches using the blackout feature and also the regular cut for layering. I pop-dotted the flourish off the card for a nice dimentional look.
Fiskars came out with some new acrylic stamps which I'm really liking. There is a big background stamp, flourishes and words... 17 stamps total. The words "True Friend" came from this set. It has lots of potential and I have an idea of another card feature that I plan to work on this week.
The paper used for this card was DCWV Whimsy stack (patterned paper) and the newer DCWV Natural Stack (off-white cardstock)a. The colors went very well together. I inked all edges with Tsukineko chalk ink in Pixie Dust. The words were inked with Tsukineko Brilliance Pigment ink in Pearlescent Poppy and then heat embossed with Ultra Thick embossing powder.
Here's a picture of the fiskar punch:
