Cheerful HELLO Card In Melon Mambo, Bermuda Bay and Very Vanilla
I had a need for a simple card to send to a friend that I haven't seen in a while. With everything going on, I wanted her to know that I was thinking about her.
I choose my colors because they are bright and cheerful (and hot pink is her favorite color - Melon Mambo is perfect!)
For this card you will need the following cuts/punches:
Very Vanilla - thick (card base): cut to 8½" x 5½" and scored at 4¼"
Decorative strip from the Wild Rose Dies cut out in Melon Mambo
Stitched Rectangle: 2½" x 4" die cut, plus the outer frame from the die cut in Bermuda Bay
Layering Square: scalloped 1¼" x 1¼" in Very Vanilla and matching square cut in Melon Mambo
Five leaf sprig Flourish Dies (RETIRING): cut out in Very Vanilla
Daisy Punch: 2 punches in Melon Mambo (I recommend stamping them first if you have the matching Daisy Lane stamp set)
Once you have all your put/punched pieces, you can start glueing them to your card base. I used my Fine Tip Glue Pen to glue down my decorative strip in Melon Mambo first. Then, also with the fine tip I glued down my outer frame to help accent my stitched rectangle.
Snail adhesive worked well for attaching my stitched rectangle and my sentiment onto it's Very Vanilla base.
I glued together my two punched daisies and used my bone folder to slightly curl the petals to help give the flower a little more dimension. Using my multipurpose liquid glue, I adhered the Very Vanilla leafy sprig and my daisy.
My last piece was my hello sentiment which I popped up with a few Stampin' Dimensionals.
To give the daisy a little "pop", I used some gold metallic pearls to create a flower center.
I love this card because it was super simple to make and is bright and cheery, something I feel like we all need right now!
