ID: MC June/15 - Squares Large - Hello - HB card
size: 5" x 7"h

Created: June 8, 2015

The other day I mentioned using a Dylusions stencil that was 9 x 12" and then creating a stencil using my electronic cutter that was 5 x 7" so I wouldn't have to move the stencil around... I had cut it from Graffix clear plastic - not that easy, had to do 4 passes with various pressure. Not sure if I ruined my blade as well....

I'm using the newest "Hello" die on the outside as well as part of a companion stamp set and a Birthday sentiment stamp on the inside from Quietfire Design

("We cannot Tell..." 2pce set); ("Happy Family Days" - 5pce set); ("Hello" die);


Side folded my mango cardstock.

Sponged Distress "Fossilized Amber" all over using the eCut stencil I made, then went here and there with "Tumbled Glass" and  "Wild Honey", and a touch of "Worn Lipstick". Clear embossed twice, using Versamark between the embossing. Then off set the stencil and sponged with "Gathered Twigs", wiping off the excess with a damp paper towel which left some nice streaks... Trimmed down. Punched a circle on the right side. Adhered some lace and yellow satin ribbon and a bow and adhered, then adhered this decorative layer to my card front.

Stamped the "My Friend" using Versafine Black Onyx on white cardstock and clear embossed. Embossed using Cuttlebug "Swiss Dots" embossing folder. Cut with my EK Success circle scissor a bit smaller than the punched out area and adhered leaving a small mango border.

Die cut the "Hello" from white cardstock which I had colored with Distress greens direct to paper. Applied Versamark and clear embossed, then adhered to card.

The poppies were from my stash and the right color...

Added a little heart enamel sticker to the bow and some rhinestone flourishes.

On the inside: used the stencil again with the mustard seed, then daubed with Distress acrylic dauber Picket Fence" smushing the color with my finger.

Stamped the sentiment using the black, clear embossed and punched out. Die cut the scalloped circle (Spellbinders) from white cardstock and heavily sponged with the amber. Adhered the two circles together and then onto the card.


Stamped the poppies (Penny Black "Blooming Garden") using Distress minis, misting with water and stamping, then applying a bit more color with a damp paintbrush. Fussy cut around the stamping and adhered to card.
