Elegant Hello Card


Finally back at the drawing board with a challenge card after a long hiatus in all things creative due to a lovely summer chock full end to end.  (even better I was able to join this challenge with my sister in law Judy) I chose this great little sketch from the Paper Players #407 because it is  so simple and versatile.  I liked it so much, indeed, that I created a batch of 4 out of this lovely designer paper by Graphic 45 called Joy Luck – Bird Song Collection.  I even have enough left over in scrap that I can make even more cards to eat it ALL up!  Have you ever challenged yourself to use a paper up in one fell swoop?   I cut the Hello from my Die-namics diecut, layering it up for strength, and I glued it onto the bottom panel of my card, which I had “bumped up” using a thick foam tape. 

Thanks for dropping by! 


  1. Oh yes, this is amazing paper! This design just loves pretty paper! I have never tried to use a whole sheet in one swoop - something to try. I like that you've resisted the urge to add anything aside from a stong, plain sentiment and let the paper do all the work. Thank you for joining us at The Paper Players this week.

  2. Barbara...can I just say wow to your patterned paper selection. Your interpretation of the sketch is just wonderful! Thanks so much for joining us this week at The Paper Players!

  3. Barbara, this paper is gorgeous! I love the rich colors, the perfect choice for this layout. Thanks so much for playing along with us at The Paper Players!

  4. CAS perfection, I love the papers you used and the simple hello is fabulous.


Your comments are a blessing to me!
