My husband and I have a good friend…he’s a single dad, and just all-around nice guy. He recently commented on one of the cards I posted on Facebook and said “When am I ever going to get one of these fabulous cards?” and mentioned that his birthday was coming up. What could I do? I had to make him a card! Since I have yet to use my LLD Smart Phone Die-Namics and matching LLD Friend Request stamp set from My Favorite Things, I thought now would be a good time to put it all to use. And the sketch #182 was the perfect layout, too!
I turned the sketch on it’s side to accommodate the longer phone die-cut…
I gave stamps, inks and dies a work-out on this card! Starting with the Berrylicious card stock base, I stamped the BG Grid background with Grout Gray hybrid ink. On the Tangy Orange card stock strip I stamped some dots from the DC Large Scale backgrounds using Orange Fizz hybrid ink. On the Jellybean Green card stock panel I stamped BG On the Diagonal background with Sour Apple premium dye ink.
Above and below the green card stock panel I added two Pierced Fishtail Flags STAX Die-Namics cut from Electric Red card stock. I cut the phone base from Grout Gray card stock, and the phone front from Black Licorice card stock, laying a piece of Berrylicious card stock on the “screen” stamped with the BG Typewriter Text background. Then I cut some word bubbles and other accessories from the LLD Smart Phone Die-Namics, and stamped them with different phrases from the LLD Friend Request stamp set. On the lower right I added a little Electric Red card stock “flag” cut from the Blueprints 15 Die-namics, and embellished it with a Berrylicious button tied with hemp cord.
