Hello with a Bouquet Cards
Hello crafty friends, Today I’d would like to share with you these three Hello/ Encouragement cards that I created with the Hello with a Bouquet die by Pinkfresh Studios. These cards were so much fun and easy to make, as they only involve Splatters!! And of course die cutting and heat embossing. So let’s get started!
To begin with I started by splattering a Navy card panel with metallic watercolors. Nothing fancy, although I have to admit that my splatter did not turned out the way that I wanted. Because I had a big blob right in the middle of the whole card panel. Honestly, I could have start over but I leave it as it was, at the end I was going to die cutting it anyways. But I ended up changing my mind, and I created two cards instead of one, which at the end is always a good thing. Who doesn’t like to create two cards at once, Am I right?
So I made another cut, but this time I die cutting the bouquet out of white cardstock as you can see in the picture above. Then I adhered the backed of the card panel to a standard A2 size white card base, and I inlay the bouquet to the card by adhering the backed of it with liquid glue. Next I carefully die cut out of a piece of navy cardstock and fun foam just the HELLO (this step was just to add a little bit of dimension.) To finish it up I adhered the backed of the letters to the fun foam and I adhered them to the card. Last but not least I added shimmer to the HELLO by using the Nuvo Aqua Shimmer, and I covered it up with Glossy Accent. While the glossy accent was doing its job, I decided to gold heat embossed a sentiment in a piece of cardstock, and I adhered it to the card along with Silver Polka Fushion sequins as the last touch of sparkle!
For the second card I decided to directly add the bouquet die cutting piece from the previous card to a side folding A2 white card base, that I had previously scored. However, before I adhered it to the card base I decided to use once again the Hello with a Bouquet die to make another cut out of a piece of white cardstock. (You can slightly see peaks of white underneath the Navy bouquet.) To finish it up I water colored the Hello with Metallic Pearl, and once the letters were dried I adhered them to the fun foam and I inlay them to the card. As a finishing touch I added gold sequins here in there to compliment the gold splatter, and glossy accent on top the Hello.
This card was the easiest and quickest of all three. As I carefully create gold splatter on a white card panel that I used as my card background (“Splatters” that were perfectly imperfect this time, if you know what I mean lol) So I die cut the bouquet out of a sheet of patterned paper that I had from my stash. Next I adhered the backed of the letters to the fun foam, once the card panel was dried I adhered it to the white card base, and I adhered the bouquet to it with liquid glue. Last but certainly not least I adhered clear sequins here in there, and I inlay the hello back to the original place, as a last touch I covered it the HELLO all up with glossy accent. This was really cool, as the glossy accent darkened it up the Hello as you can see in the picture above.
Well here is an overview on the three cards side by side.
On this you can see the dimension that the fun foam added to the letters.
