Hello Beautiful Release
Hello! Hello! I’m back with another card featuring the new Welcome die cut from the brand spanking new SSS Hello Beautiful release! What are your favorites of the release? You can check out the whole release HERE.
Alright, let’s get into the deets of this card. I first cut a white card panel from Neenah Classic Crest 110lb cardstock using the Diagonal Stitched Rectangles from PinkFresh Studio. I then pulled out my Simple Strips die from Pretty Pink Posh and got to die cutting a bunch of strips from various colored cardstocks in my stash. I think most of these are SSS cardstock, but I can’t be sure on that!
While I was over die cutting, I went ahead and cut my Welcome sentiment four times and the houses from the SSS Village set once from Neenah Classic Crest 110lb. I then used some tape runner on a thin piece of white paper and began adhering my strips to that. If we’re being honest here, I messed up my rainbow and then just had to mix them up .. you know, to look like it was on purpose!
Once I thought I had enough strips, I started playing with the layout on my card panel and finally decided on the layout that you can see here in the pics. Before I proceeded any further, some black splatter needed to happen .. Just a little to pull all of the black elements together. I glued down my little panel of strips to my card panel using Craft Tacky Glue, and adhered all four of my Welcome die cuts together and then adhered that to the bottom of my strip panel. I added 3M Foam Tape to the backs of the houses and positioned those just above my main sentiment.
So I knew that I wanted this card to say Welcome Home, but I searched and searched for a “home” word stamp to no avail. What was I to do? To solve this dilemma, I busted out the handy, dandy label maker! I made my tiny label and positioned it next to the house, and I was pleased with the way it looked. Then I decided that I wanted a cute little sub-sentiment, so I scoured through my bajillion Reverse Sentiment Strips and settled on this one. I trimmed it using the SSS Sentiment Labels die and popped it up on some foam tape. I adhered my card panel to a black panel of cardstock for some contrast and adhered all of that to my card base, which is Neenah Classic Crest 110lb.
There you have it! I enjoyed this card because I really like working with strips, and it came out bright and fun! I hope you enjoyed this project and that it inspires your creative juices!
