A Little Friendship Card

Today, I have a quick little card to share! 

This is truly a quick card!  I think it took me longer to pick out the buttons than put it together!

The card base is ivory cardstock cut with SpellbindersS5-147 Resplendent Rectangles #5 (#1 being the smallest).  I love the beautiful cut edge on this piece!  In fact, the whole set is beautiful!!!!  It's one of Spellbinders newly released sets called Nestabilities® Majestic Elements.  Not only do the cut pieces have incredible detailed cut edges, a beautiful cut edge and embossed pattern is left in the negative space!  The possibilities of different combinations of the die cuts and negative spaces is amazing!
Okay, back to the card details.........
I simply folded the Respendent Rectangle in half to create the card.  Easy!  I inked the edges a little with Ranger Pesto ink.  I used the same ink for the verse.
The blue designer paper was cut and embossed with Resplendent Rectangles #4.  Love the inverted scallop edge with cutouts.  I sanded it a bit to reveal the white core of the paper and emphasize the embossed pattern.  I folded it in half to fit my card.  Perfect fit, of course!  Before I fastened it to the card, I stamped the verse from JustRite's Shabby Chic Autumn Leaves stamp set. 
at this point my power went out so I'm trying to finish on my phone....a bit more challenging!!!
To finish the card, I fastened the 2 Resplendent Rectangles together. I tied some floss in 3 buttons and fastened them with Glue Dots. The only thing left is to write a note inside and share it with a friend!!!
Here's my note to you my blog friends:
