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!!!!
