I got a little carried away as usual and made waaaaaaay too many cards with these! I was just having too much fun. But that’s a good problem to have, right? So I thought I’d walk ya through my process!
I started out by choosing the colors — that’s actually always the hardest part for me! For these I decided on lemon yellow, lavender, opera pink, vermillion orange (since I had it them on my desk for the Mondo gerbera daisies) and blue. These colors make me so happy!
Then I sat down and made some backgrounds on good quality watercolor paper — love doing this part! I had a coupla requests on instagram for a video on how I make these — anyone else interested? Leave a comment and let me know!
Then after the backgrounds were completely dry I put together my cards.
I wanted to really emphasize the outline die and the “thank you” for this first card! So I started off with a striped background and die cut the outline part.
Then I die cut outline part outta that and saved all the pieces for my next card — you’ll find that below!
I die cut another outline from black cardstock, added the words to it and then offset it from the background. Some foam tape and more of those new sequins — (love the flat ones!!) — and that was that!
Here’s the card made from the outline background — it has a little inlay action going on! It was super easy to put together — I just cut another outline thank you out of white cardstock, put adhesive all over it, and popped the pieces in place.
Then I added some more of those new sequins and that was that! Love making two cards at once like this!
Hello Hello Hello!
Now for the Big Scripty Hello!
I made a bunch o’ cards with this one and saved my outline pieces, then cut 3 hellos out of black cardstock and put ’em all together.
Doesn’t it look cool? Like a card you’d find at a fancy schmancy stationery shop!
So of course I had to make MOAR cards!!!
Had to add some of the new butterfly sequins — they just make the card!
Now how about a giveaway! I have an extra Big Scripty Hello up for grabs, yeah!!!
