BLOG HOP: "Friends" Inspired Card using Playful Alphabet and Stitched Triangle Dies


Today I'm participating in the Stampin' Dreams Blog Hop! Our theme is "Movies & TV Shows." I'll be honest, I had to think of an idea for this blog hop for a few weeks, but finally had an idea come to me! My favorite TV show is "FRIENDS," so I created an appropriately themed card!



I used the "FRIENDS" logo as inspiration. The triangles follow the order of the colored dots between each word... red, blue, yellow, red, blue, yellow. I also changed the "I'll be there for you" title song lyrics to "I am here for you" and stamped them using the Make a Difference stamp set (which can be found in the Annual Catalog).



To play off of those colors (red, blue, yellow), I wanted to use the Stitched Triangle dies to spotlight each letter, which were cut out using the Playful Alphabet dies. Because the 6 triangles would have been too long for a normal size card, I decided to make a slim line card instead. This is my first ever slim line!
