Few weeks back I had shared a set of friends card using our own Indian make mudra stamps and I hope you all like them. This one is another set of friends card using art impressions laughing set and I was a little apprehensive about the card but it turned out to be kind of okay. For the first time I have used pattern paper and I used just a little because there were lot of empty space on the card.

How I made these friends card with art impressions laughing stamp sets

So I started off with stamping the images of the laughing ladies using archival black ink on brustro watercolor paper.

Once the coloring was done. I had cut each image by leaving a very small gap of about 1-2mm beyond the image outline.

Next was preparing the card. Most of my cards are simple floral ones and I like keeping things simple. I thought of keeping these ladies  on a colored card stock along with sentiments but then they looked like they were randomly dropped from sky! The card needed something extra  something filling that blank space. I had been hoarding some pretty pattern papers since long but hardly used! I chose this really colorful polka dots sheet and cut them into strips of about little less than 1/2 the card stock width. I had some doilies that I had picked up from Itsy Bitsy when it was on sale last summer ( yeah last summer and never used!)Before finalizing, I tried to change layouts and find which one fitted the best and I settled upon having it like this. The top right corner space was just enough to hold the sentiments.

Using glue I pasted all the elements as planned.I went one step ahead and punched out some colored confetti with paper punch and stuck them around the sentiments – just to add some extra details. The sentiments are from Hampton arts and they are really hilarious 🙂 Loving the final outcome 🙂
