This is my second post today. Scroll down to see the one posted earlier today.
Remember when I told you a that I was working on a project last week? Well I'm going to show you what the project was today! A friend of mine saw this card that I made and she really liked the way the words about friendship were done at the bottom. She said she thought something like that would make a nice frame for an old photo she had of a friend of hers. She came to me with the idea of making a frame for the photo and having it open up like a card. She had found an old autograph book that her friend had signed a long time ago and she wanted to slip a copy of the autographed page inside and also be able to write a personal note.
So, I set out to make some paper with all kinds of words describing friends so that I could use the paper to cover a frame. I used lots of different fonts and played around with the sizes and then filled the whole page up and printed it. (special thanks to my daughter Chesney for telling me how to do this!) I created the frame out of some chip board and then covered it with the paper. I attached the whole thing to a card that was sized big enough to hold the autographed page. Here's the finished product

I toyed around with a couple of embellishments a bright red flower to add some color
and the word "Memories" in an oval with pearls
but my friend opted for the plain frame. When I was getting ready to give it to her I thought I'd make an envelope out of the friend words paper
So, what do you think? Do you like my paper? Well, when I had this all finished I asked Chesney if she could make this a free download on squigglefly for all of you and they did it! You can grab that and another freebie that's just been added at squigglefly now!
The other freebie paper is a paws background that is perfect for any pet card you might be making. During the month of July Squigglefly is going to donate half of all sales in their "animals" category to the ASPCA. The ASPCA is a humane organization that is dedicated to preventing cruelty to animals. They remove them from abusive and neglective situations and work to find them loving homes. So head on over and check out their animal images while you're picking up your free paper!
