My upline, Julie Davison, really rocks. She does so much for her downline, including me. I know she’s been feeling a little overwhelmed lately for various reasons. So in an attempt to brighten her day and show my appreciation, I sent her this card out of the blue. I love the tattoo-like look of the Friends Rock stamp set, especially since it has a coordinating wheel called Rockin’. I used the Stampin’ Up! Two Tags Bigz Die to create the fancy orange piece on the left, using the slit opening as a “holder” for my white cardstock piece. I cut the tag so that only the left side was used. The orange piece on the right is just a piece of orange cardstock tucked under the white so the piece looks continuous. My white cardstock piece was a little plain, so I drew stitch lines on the right side with my marker.
