Simple Hello


It’s my turn to post on a2z Scrapbooking today and I am bringing you a ‘clean and layered’ card. It goes well with this month’s challenge theme Anything Goes.
Instead of stamping my sentiment, I decided to have a change of pace and die cut it using the Upper Case Alphabet die. And place a fine rose colour mesh behind it to add contrast. The Upper Case Alphabet die set is available at the a2z store. Go take a look, there’re also other Fancy Die I am sure you would enjoy. Use the discount code Cindy15 to obtain 15% off any purchase 25$ and up before shipping!
Here’s my card:

My process:

  • Die cut ‘hello’ on white card base. Remember to keep the center piece of the “O”.
  • Stamp butterfly border with black ink, colour using colouring pencil and smooth with solvent.
  • Stamp woodgrain pattern flower with soft gray shadow ink on designer paper, stamp flower center with Peeled Paint distress ink. Cut out. Cut small motif from same paper. Edge flower with Barn Door distress ink.
  • Stamp stem with Peeled Paint.
  • Adhere rose colour mesh on the back side of card front. Adhere the saved center piece of the “O”.
  • Adhere pattern flower and small motif.
  • Round card corners.

Here’s another look of my card, the card is turned and you can see the light comes thru the die cut ‘hello’.

  1. What a sweet card….I love the combo of the stamping and the die cut flower! So creative Cindy! ❤

  2. Butterflies and flowers – what could be better? Sweet card, Cindy! I have these alphabet dies, too, and forget to use them, but they’re a great size, not too small and not too large!

  3. love the little flower in the “o” that mimics the bigger flower–so sweet!

  4. Such a pretty card, Cindy! I love the butterflies and the lovely papers you chose for the flower! Love your die cut sentiment, too!
