Hello card

Hello my crafty friends!

So last week I shared with you a sympathy card that I made using the My Mind's Eye "Collectable" Unforgettable collection.

Today I'm going to share a 2nd card using the same collection and the negative space of the Doodlebug Designs die cut.

Here is the "hello" card:

You can see the negative die cut space helps the brown floral paper show through.  I inked the edges of the negative space using a Fantastix Coloring tool and CTMH Cocoa ink.  I then double-sewed inside the pink striped paper to frame the card.

Next I created a banner and embellishment cluster using Collectable stickers and buttons.  I used a Gelly Roll glitter pen to outline the edge of the die cut -- you can see a little shimmer below around the edge of the die cut negative:

For the sentiment, I used the 3D technique that I shared with the So Very Loved layout last week.  I used the Mama Elephant Inline Letters dies and cut 4 of each letter in plain white cardstock...and then glued them together one on top of each other to create my own chipboard effect.  Then I glued the final letters using the striped brown paper.  You can see the dimension below...do you also see the sparkle?  I used the Gelly Roll glitter pen to cover the brown stripes for just a touch of shine.

I hope you enjoyed my card today, and remember:  it's never too late to send a homemade card to a friend just to say "hello".  :)

Have a great week!
