I made this card to send to a fellow crafter whom I "met" on Facebook. I guess it just about sums up what I feel about the many, many people with whom I have had interaction over the internet. Questions are answered, techniques are shared and I guess this is the friendship of the 21st century! Some of these lovely people I have had the good fortune to actually meet in person... at craft shows, retreats and the like and I feel truly blessed to have all these associations.
As to the card... I began by embossing a background stamp by WOW with gold and silver embossing powder on a black base card.  The word friend is from a new alphabet die set by Memory Box called Twiggy Alphabet, which consists of the letters and their backgrounds. The flourishes are from MFT. I quite like the opulent look of this one!
The colours are from this challenge at Color Throwdown



  1. What a delightful make it is too, I'm sure your friend loved it

    Happy New Year to you and your readers


  2. This is so classy, opulent and very eye catching Chrissie x. Loved your sentiments at the beginning of your post and I couldn't agree more x.

  3. Very pretty. Love your embossed panel with the word Friend. The gold flourishes are the perfect touch. TFS

  4. Just beautiful, it looks so special and stylish. I agree with you about the friendships, they are so special xx

  5. I agree, Chrissie, and I feel blessed to call you a friend and to have met you in person more than once! You've used the perfect word to describe this elegant black and gold design ~ opulent sums it up beautifully! Hugs, Darnell
