I had a wonderful time yesterday at Craftstation with the so talented Helen and the friendly and hardworking ladies who attended the workshop!
Quite a simple card today using one of the Expressions dies form Sues collection of phrases. Sometimes we want to send a card just to say Hello and to let someone know we are thinking of them. On these occasions then what is better, especially when you don't know what to say, than Hello!
I simply cut the aperture from the hello die (which is a separate die that comes in the pack) on the right hand side of a long piece of white foundation card. Next I embossed the whole piece using the rambling blossoms A4 embossing folder. I coloured the opposing corners using summer blue gilding wax which I polished off using a dry wet wipe.
I cut the Hello centre die in aqua card and then foam mounted it over a piece of coconut white card onto which I had added a piece of double sided adhesive sheet, covered in diamond snow and coloured using the gilding wax again.
I simply foam mounted the aperture over this and added a bow and strip of teal seam binding and (hardly visible in the picture) a matching dazzler in the centre.
A few layers of white and aqua and finished, simple but hopefully just right.
