It’s Sunday, and time for Paper Players, where “friends” is the theme. My mind immediately went to the Crafting Forever stamp set, and I took the sentiment, “we are cut out to be friends,” literally

Cut Out Friends


First, I stamped the friends from The Enjoy Life stamp set in Night of Navy ink on Thick Whisper White cardstock. Then, I cut them out using my Stampin’ Up! Paper Snips. 

Since their arms were in the air, I gave them a large word to hold, “friend,” from the Well Written die set.


I designed the rest of the card around my cut out friends. The card base is Thick Whisper White followed by a layer of Twinkle Twinkle DSP in Night of Navy. It looks like stitching, so went along with the crafting theme that was developing.

The top layer is Whisper White cardstock, that I edged with a Be Mine Stitched die, and embossed with the Quilt Top folder.

I stamped the sentiment in Night of Navy ink, and used an oval Stitched Shapes die for cutting.


Before placing the sentiment, I attached a piece of Gingham Ribbon using Tear&Tape. The scissors you see are not the ones I used to cut out the friends. This is a stamp from Crafting Forever, which was cut with my Paper Snips.


I hope my friendship card was inspiring. I’d love to see what you create, so please join in the fun at the Paper Players card challenge.


The Gingham Ribbon, Quilt Top embossing folder, and Twinkle Twinkle DSP are retiring. So, order now, while supplies last. Thanks for shopping!
