Friend to Friend

This card was made for one of my employees who is having trouble with her third pregnancy. I am going to take it in tomorrow for all of the Health & Fitness Staff to sign. Keep her in your thoughts and prayers.

1. Score 5 1/2 x 8 piece of Not Quite Navy cardstock at 4 1/4 and fold along score line.
2. Stamp bird from Fun and Fast Notes onto a 3 x 3 piece of Whisper White. Stamp it again onto a scratch piece of paper. Cut out image from scrap paper.
3. Use a piece of tape to temporarily adhere your "scrap" bird over the "good" bird to create a mask. Then stamp the vase of flower image from the same set slightly to the right but allowing some of it to stamp on top of your masked bird. Peel off mask.
