Hey Girlfriend!

ser⋅en⋅dip⋅i⋅ty: (noun) an aptitude for making desirable discoveries by accident.

That explains this project. I was lucky enough to get published agin last month in Vamp Stamp News, I was extra lucky to be the winner of 10 back issues of VSN and I was even more lucky to pick the April 2000 issue that had load of goodies in including the template I used for this project. I also had the “Girlfriend” pad of collage papers and stamps from Crafty Secrets that I thought would be perfect to use being October and Breast Cancer awareness month.

A girlfriend gift! Paper: K&Co, Collage stuff: Crafty Secrets

As you open the book the flaps fold out to reveal more surprises ;)

"I got your back" A great reminder to do your monthly breast self exams girls! If you notice the first photo you see the ribbon loop, that is so you can hang the card up, maybe in your powder room so you wont forget to do your exam EVERY MONTH! It saves lives ladies ;)

I love the caption with the old ladies.

Here is the card closed, it is very dainty, I added a ribbon rose and a strip of scalloped paper and thats it.

This was pretty quick to make. I made a version of the template so I could cut it with my Cricut and SCAL software. The little scallop frame was from the free font Kutups. I cut the template from a sheet of double-sided K&Co pattern paper and clipped bits from the collage pad and adhered them to the layers. I stamped the pin-up lady, phrase and awareness ribbon on a cream panel and adhered. This template would make an excellent gift card or ATC holder. Mine was 3 3/4″x2 3/4″ but you could eek out a slightly bigger version (3″x4″) if you stretched the template to the full width of the paper. If you would like a copy of the template (and 3 other fabulous envelope templates) you can order the April 2000 back issue of Vamp Stamp News here. While you are at it why not subscribe?  It is $3 (or less) an issue if you do, I consider myself an advanced stamper and I always find inspiration in the pages of VSN but even if you are just starting out I’m sure you would enjoy it too.

Thanks for stopping by and till next time happy crafting!
