My Sweet Friend Card with KellyCraft!

Hi Everyone,

I created this card for the KellyCraft blog and I thought I would share it with you here.  I design different cards each month for the KellyCraft blog with their great tool, the Get-it-Straight Laser Square.  If you would like more ideas for using the Get-it-Straight Laser Square, stop by our blog at

These new stamps from JustRite Clear rubber stamps are fabulous! I really liked working with them on this card. If you join me at the KellyCraft blog every month, I will try to bring you cards that are anything but ordinary. I love putting time into my cards by layering, lots of embellishments, different shapes, cards that move, etc.

Every once in a while, I'll show you how to make a card fast and easy, but if you're looking for cards that are different and detailed, you've come to the right place. And of course to create these types of cards, your life will be some much easier if you add my favorite tool to YOUR toolbox...the Get-it-Straight Laser Square by KellyCraft.
