Hello Card by Laurie

by studiokatia

Welcome back!!  Laurie is here today and I’m sharing a Hello card.  I know winter has officially just begun and its not quite Christmas but I’m ready to put my Winter/Christmas supplies away.  I’m ready for florals and bright colors!!  So I did just that!!

I picked out some fun, cheerful colors and used the skinniest brushstroke from the Brushstrokes stamp set.  I used my Misti for this as I knew I would be double stamping.  I did remove the stamp each time because I wanted and imperfect, random look.  I then used the largest die from the Darling Ribbon and Dotted Frames Die Set.  I love the dot detail these dies give.
After the stamping was done, I had a hard time deciding on the sentiment.  I first heat embossed in white the “hello” word from the Duo Talk set on a scrap piece of black cardstock.
I liked it but thought it needed just a bit more…so I die cut one of the speech bubbles from the Stitched Duo Speech Bubbles from white cardstock.
Now this I thought was just too stark and covered up too much of the happy background.  I ended up die cutting the same speech bubble directly from the panel…this always makes me nervous:)  I also die cut it from a piece of white fun foam to add dimension.
The dimension of the inlaid speech bubble adds interest to an otherwise simple card.  To finish it off, I added a generous layer of glitter pen over all the brushstrokes and added some Jet Black Sequins in various sizes (this is a fusion mix).
That’s it for me today!!  Hope you enjoyed.  And I want to wish everyone a VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!!
