Gerty and Eunice are back in the Old Friends stamp set from Sparkle N Sprinkle. I think the sentiment, which is part of the set, is so true - don't you?
I started off by stamping the image, coloring it with Copics and then fussy cutting it out. Purple Dust glitter was added to Eunice's purple hat; Aqua Marine glitter enhances Gerty's glasses as well as the flower in her hat; and Raspberry Soda glitter gives shimmer and sparkle to Eunice's fingernails and Gerty's knitting bag and her jewelry.
For the background I applied VersaMark to the inside of the Cane Weave embossing folder from Spellbinders and ran it through my machine. Then I covered it with Peanut Butter embossing powder and heat set it.
The sentiment was stamped onto a piece of vellum with Memento ink and heat embossed with Clear embossing powder. I created the little ball of yarn from some yarn I had and added two straight pins for the knitting needles.
The card base is a piece of Core'dinations cardstock that I sanded down the raised portion. After that, I added some glue with my Sakura glue pen to the sanded-off areas and sprinkled Aqua Marine onto the glue. This added another element of shimmer to the card (with very little work).
