Friendship Card - Sepia Notes

A friendship card, quite often I send a card as a notelet or pop one in a package I'm sending, purely because it doesn't have to be an occasion to send someone a card, I think everyone enjoys receiving one.
This started out as a 15 x 15 cm card then by scoring down at the halfway mark on the front facing cover and then bending it back you now have a concertina card I then cut out the brown card at 14.5 x 14.5 cm for the insert and 14.5 x 7cm for the front and again cut some cream card a little smaller than both pieces.
I used the Rollergraph script stamp wheel and scattered straw distress ink pad and rolled the stamp over the insert cream card then using some sponge in a circular motion dabbing it into the ink I distressed both pieces of the cream card.
I then stamped both pieces of card using flower stamps and a sentiment in a close to cocoa ink, the front piece with the sentiment on then had 2 semi circles punched out at the top and the bottom of the card. I finished by adding ribbon.
