Hello Beautiful Release
The Simon Says Stamp Hello Beautiful release is amazing, and I’m loving my Welcome die! I really can’t stop playing with it! I rarely, and I mean rarely, ever make baby cards, but I think these turned out super cute!
I ended up making two baby cards, because you know, I wanted one in pink and one in blue! As you can see, both cards are made exactly the same way, so I’m only going through making one card. So what are the details? Lemme tell you! First off, it’s a lot of die cutting, make no mistake about that! I began by cutting a panel of Neenah Classic Crest 110lb cardstock using the SSS Detail Petal Plate. Actually, all of the die cutting used is Neenah 110lb, except for the pink and blue leaves. Moving on .. I die cut the Etched Eucalyptus Wreath twice, and the Detail Elm Leaves four times from pink or blue cardstock in my stash. I used the SSS Rounded Alphabet Small to cut the letters for Baby, and I cut those two times each.
See what I mean? A lot of die cutting! I adhered the four Welcome die cuts together using Craft Tacky Glue, and the two letters for Baby. Once I figured out the placement of the Etched Eucalyptus Wreath, I glued those two together using only four points. I wanted to be able to tuck the Detail Elm Leaves in the nooks and crannies of the wreath.
Of the Detail Elm Leaves cut, I used the smaller leaf and the medium leaf. While my wreath was lying on top of my card panel, I figured out the placement of the medium Elm leaf and glued those underneath the wreath. I then adhered the wreath to the card panel with Craft Tacky Glue using only four points again. I didn’t want anything on this project adhered flat.
I placed a small amount of glue on the smaller Elm leaf and tucked those into the wreath. I then adhered the letters for Baby inside the wreath, towards the bottom. Cutting four of the Welcome die might seem a bit like overkill, but I wanted it to be sturdy, because the Welcome is only adhered to the wreath at the letters E and M.
To finish, I adhered some pink sequins from the SSS Strawberry Shortcake pack to the pink card, and some sequins from the SSS Moonshine Confetti pack to the blue card. And my last step was to adhere my card panel to my card base, which is Neenah Classic Crest 110lb, using 3M Foam Tape.
Thanks for stopping by! I hope you enjoyed this project, and hopefully, it inspires you to get crafty! Do you have any favorites from the Hello Beautiful release? I’d love to know what they are!
