Hello Crafty Friends,
Hope that the week has been an awesome start for you all so far! I cannot complain. We have had some rain and some sun, and the temps are not unbearable, however it has been humid/muggy at times.
Today’s card is a design I have not done in a long while- Clean and Simple. I’ve had this Huge Hello Die for a bit yet never used it. Today I knew I wanted to pull it out and cut it out.
I started with a 4″ x 5.25″ of Whip Cream cardstock and used a rectangle mask cut from some Inkadinkadoo masking paper using the Journey Rectangle dies. I then applied the mask to the edge of the cardstock, leaving the middle exposed for inking. I used the Flannel Life background stamp to stamp the main focal area, using Peaches & Cream and Fresh Sage inks. I inked one then wiped some off, stamped, and then would do the same with the othr color. After wards, I used the coordinating Piercing Dies and pierced the stamped background image to highlight it, and give another element of dimesion. I then die cut 3 hellos from whip cream and one from peaches and cream cardstock. Adhered them all together using Journey Craft glue, and adhered it to middle of panel. Used the wooden arrow from Bagabond Chips, wrapping some Fresh Sage Thread around the arrow before glueing it below the hello cutouts. To complete the panel, I sprinkled some Peaches & Cream Silk over the front. I finished up the card by placing the panel on a Peaches & Cream card base, cut and scored to create a tent folding card. Although very simple, I love how gentle and inviting the colors look.
This card took no time at all to create, and I cannot wait to send it out to a friend who I know is going to be thrilled to receive it.
Thanks for popping in, and please leave me a comment to let me know what you think of today’s card.
Hugs and Blessings,
