For a friend..

Friday was a good friend's birthday. I use to work with her and still do on occasion but I didn't get a chance to run by and see her on Friday. I put the finishing touches on her birthday presents yesterday and will drop them off to her today. I had made her a name frame several years ago and had noticed that it faded significantly. Her office is in direct sunlight! Anyway, I decided to make her a new one. She really like bold patterns and bright colors, so this is what I did for her. I also got her a little stand for it since the place she use to hang it on the wall is no longer working for her. I had fun using my Big Shot and my flower embosslits to create this frame. I also used the leaf Sizzlet and Rasberry Tart Designer series paper. Oh, and I did use my Inspiration for cutting the letters. As much as I do love my Big Shot and the alphabets I have with it, I love having my Inspiration to cut any size letter, in any font I have on my computer. The letters were run through the Big Shot and textured using the Texturz plate. It's hard to see the texture in the photo but it looks great in person. While I was at it, I made her a card using matching paper. I love the way this card turned out! All products from Stampin' Up:
Stamp set: Sincere Salutations
Paper: Regal Rose, Rose Red, Pink Pirouette, Rasperry Tart DSP, Vellum cardstock
Ink: Rose Red
Accessories: Pretties Pearl, Fleuerttes, 5/8 inch Regal Rose grosgrain ribbon, Stampin' Up Backgrounds Texturz Plates #1, Stampin' Up Beautiful Butterfilies die, dimensionals
**You can't see it on the photo, but the vellum butterfly was run through the Big Shot using the texturz plate. The larger butterfly's wings are popped up using dimensionals.
Have a marvelous Monday everyone!!
