Friends Hanging Card

I don't know about you, but having Monday off has thrown off my whole week! But, it is Wednesday, and I have a sweet card that I created using some of The Rubber Cafe products to share with you. I am a country girl at heart and this card reflects that side of me. It is a hanging card and features a front and back side. I love these kind of cards, because they can not only be given as a card, but can be hung as a piece of art work as well.

 I started with a layer of the Prima Sun Kissed paper, and then punched the Jelliebean Soup corrugated paper and layered it on. I then took some more Prima paper and deeply distressed a layer and then fussy cut out another piece and stamped it using The Rubber Cafe's Heart Strings Stamp, and then added some shine with some Your So Fine Glitter in Bronze Medal.  I then layered it on with foam tape that I created with some of The Rubber Cafe's One and Only Tape to give my card dimension.
Here is a close up of the stamp work:

I took a piece of Prima Sunkiss Chipboard  and added it as my sentiment, then added some visual interest by adding some of The Rubber Cafes Pearl Jellie Dots.

I then added some little sunflowers to the corners and stamped some leaves, using Tim Holtz Vintage Photo Ink and one of  The Rubber Cafe's Leaf Stamp 1 stamps.

 I used some 7 Gypsies Metal Clothes Hangers  to attach my hemp rope to create a hanger for my card.

For the back side of the card, I layered up more of the  Prima Sun Kissed Paper and some Webster's Pages Paper, distressing the edges and inking the edges heavily for that girlie grunge look I love so much.

 The sentiment was stamped using the newly released stamp set Friends and the tulips were stamped using one of the stamps from the Window Garden Stamp Set. Both of these new releases can be purchased in The Rubber Cafe's brand new, totally gorgeous and versatile On The Fence Bundle.
Thank you for joining me for this weeks reveal!
