CutCardstock Design Team Project: Lot’s of Hello’s

How many “hello” dies does one card maker need?  I say, you can’t have too many!  For my project today, first featured on the CutCardstock blog, I’m utilizing a few of my favorite “hello” dies for a clean and simple, colorful card.  Pop Tone card stock, on sale at the CutCardstock shop this month, adds the perfect “pop” of color.

I started off by running a large “hello” die through my Sizzix machine using Cougar White Super Smooth Cardstock–I like the 100lb.  Then, I took the letters and ran them through again in a dotted embossing folder.

You want to choose an embossing folder that has a pattern that’s close together like dots or stripes so it shows well on the letters.

I felt like the card was going need a little bit of a flat layer underneath my die cuts for interest, so I added a stenciled flower layer to the upper left corner of a white notecard.

I adhered my large “hello” with small foam squares to the front of the card along with a “hey” and “hi”.  These were cut using Grape Jelly and Blue Raspberry Pop Tone Cardstock.  A sentiment tucked in the corner of the die cuts finished the card.

 I’ll confess, I have way more “hello” dies than this, LOL!  If you are the same, you could try this project with every color in the Pop Tone rainbow!  Thanks for joining me today.
