How to encourage a good friend

There are times in life when you want to encourage a good friend and I have the perfect card idea for that! The key to a friendship card is to keep it simple and make it beautiful.

You have two choices:

  1. choose a stamp set
  2. choose a beautiful paper design

What I love about Stampin' Up! products is that the design decisions are made for you (if you want)! The Joyous Noel paper has sophisticated designs and lovely Christmas colors, but you can pair this paper with non-Christmas images too!

How about the Wishing You Well stamp set?

Wishing You Well Clear-Mount Stamp Set

Look at the elegance of these images, ideal for projects no matter the season. These Distinktive stamps are simply for the heart.

Making Wishing You Well the perfect stamp set for a friendship card! See how to make this card using the instructions below. Happy stamping!
