Hello everyone, Linda Gorman here! Today I am featuring a slimline card made with the Best Buds Stamp Set from Joy Clair Designs.  I love the cute critters and the fun friend sayings in this set.  During these difficult time I really miss my friends.  This is a great way to let your friends know you are thinking about them.

To make this card, I first made a slimline card base out of white card stock  The card stock  is 8 inches wide and 9 inches tall. I folded the card stock in half at 4 inches.  The card base then measures 4 inches by 9 inches. I used a die from Pinkfresh Studios to cut the aqua piece of card stock.  I placed the aqua piece on the card base without adhering it down and used a pencil to mark where each of the circles were. Then, I removed the aqua piece of card stock.

I die cut 3 slightly larger circles out of an alcohol ink background from my stash.  I glued them to the white card base in the penciled circles I had drawn. Additionally,  I stamped the images and sentiments from the Best Buds Stamp Set onto white card stock. Then,  I colored the images with Copic markers.

I glued the sentiments and images to the aqua card stock.  And in addition, I used foam tape on the back of the aqua card stock, centered it above the alcohol inked circles and adhered it to the card base.  I used a NUVO glitter pen on each image and added sequins for a little extra sparkle.
