This is a fun card I made that did not involve any stamping at all. I only used dies, cardstock and Designer Series Paper. I like making cards that just say hello because you can use them for any occasion by stamping the appropriate occasion stamp on the inside such as happy birthday, thinking of you or get well. Really hello cards can be used for any occasion except maybe sympathy.
To make this card I first cut out the letters using the Playful Alphabet Dies. The great thing about these dies is they have two dies for many of the letters. These include two L’s for hello and two P’s for Happy so you can cut them all out at once. There are also 2 A’s, E’s, I’s, N’s, O’s, R’s, S’s and T’s. It makes it so much easier to make words because of this. One trick to make your letters straight is to use a ruler.
It is hard to tell from the photograph but I actually used the negative space of the letters for this card. I cut out the hello from Mossy Meadow card stock and then cut the card stock at an angle. I backed that with a piece of Soft Sea Foam card stock. I saved the letters I cut out you use on another card someday.
I cut out the two triangles from Dandy Garden Designer Series Paper using the Stitched Triangle Dies. This DSP is in the 2021 January – June Mini Catalog. The Stitched Rectangles are in the 2020/2021 Annual Catalog and are carrying over to the new 2021-2022 Annual Catalog. The coordinating stamp set called The Right Triangle is not carrying over though. You can still buy the stamp set and dies in a bundle and save 10%.
