MFTWSC182 close-up
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.

All supplies from My Favorite Things unless otherwise noted…
Stamps:  LLD Friend Request, DC Large Scale Backgrounds, BG Grid background, BG On the Diagonal background, BG Typewriter Text background
Card stocks:  Berrylicious card stock,

Tangy Orange card stock, Jellybean Green card stock, Electric Red card stock, Black Licorice card stock, Grout Gray card stock
Inks:  Berrylicious hybrid ink, Tangy Orange hybrid ink, Orange Fizz hybrid ink, Jellybean Green hybrid ink, Grout Gray hybrid ink, Sour Apple premium dye ink
Dies:  Blueprints 15, LLD Smart Phone
Accessories:  Hemp cord, Berrylicious buttons
That’s all for me today!  Happy Friday, and thanks SO MUCH for stopping by!

I came over for your CT card which I don't see but I'm glad I came because that sailboat is just adorable and today's card is really cute too, makes me think I should start using my cell phone once in awhile. I really hate using those things.
Have a good one. By the way, Simon Says Stamp is having a DT call. All you have to do is link up your blog to enter, pretty easy.
