Lovely Friends is a stamp set that is in the 2017/2018 Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog. It has a ton of sentiments and a couple of them are big. I mean really big. Huge! I love big sentiments so I knew I had to have this set when I first saw it. Plus there are some two step flowers, leaves and squiggles.
Another fun thing about this set is that it has matching Thinlits called Lovely Laurel and you can save 10% by purchasing them in a Bundle. Now the fun this about these Thinlits is they make pop-up images. Here is the inside of the card using these Thinlits.
When you open the card the laurel and the banner open up and pop out. It is a nice surprise. I thought it would be hard to put together but it really is very easy. Each piece has a slot that cuts out and you just put the slots together to make the full image.
