Plain and simple, my inspiration this month was Toy Story. I wanted to use the “You’ve Got a Friend in Me” stamp because that song and/or phrase holds a very special place in my heart. Toy Story was the first full-length movie I ever let my son watch. When he promoted from Kindergarten to 1st Grade his class sang “You’ve Got a Friend in Me” at the ceremony. He’s my Andy.

Based on the red, yellow, and blue of the Toy Story logo, it was easy to choose the Jubilee papers for my project. I used card pattern #26 from Make It from Your Heart Volume 2 so all the papers were pretty evenly visible.

I stamped the sentiment in Indian Corn Blue ink, and then stamped it on a piece of scrap in Cranberry as well. I cut around the word “friend” and adhered it over the top of the Indian Corn Blue image because I wanted to highlight that word.

Here is what I used. All products are Close to My Heart:

S1405 You’ve Got a Friend stamp set
X7181B Jubilee Paper Packet
1388 Colonial White cardstock
Z2130 Indian Corn Blue Exclusive Inks stamp pad

Such a sweet card! Love it!

Sheila Bennett said...

Love your card! And I had to chuckle, you and I used the same stamp and the same pattern from Make It From Your heart. But because we used different papers and colors, our cards are both unique.
