A Friendly Hello

Hello again!  I have a fun card for you today.  Recently I acquired some new plain but fun-colored card stock, and the other day I sat down at stared at the pretty colors until inspiration struck.  Ever have those days?  Anyway, I played around with a few colors and here’s what I came up with:

Hello Friend 1


What do you think?  I cut each different color 1/4″ smaller than the one layered beneath it so there was enough border to really show off the colors.  The hardest part was lining up all the squares and getting the partial squares juuust right.  The fun part was realizing that I could finally use some of the sequins just sitting in my stash!  The sentiment is stamped from 2 different sets (hence the slight differences that may only annoy me because I’m a perfectionist) and embossed with clear powder.  This card measures 5×6.5″ and is already filled with a long note and on its way to someone special 🙂 I hope she likes it!

    This is fantastic! I don’t even want to think about how long it took to punch/shape/die cut all those little elements and then layer them with such precision. The end result is beautiful! Love the colors you chose, and the sentiment on the diagonal adds great visual interest, too. Wow! I’m impressed!
