Hello for Fab Friday Challenge

The Fab Friday group of Stampers are back with another great challenge for us.  This challenge is a color challenge that uses Lost Lagoon, Blackberry Bliss, and Mossy Meadow.  Now, if you read yesterday’s post you may be thinking that these colors are familiar. And, yes they are the colors in the Christmas Card from yesterday.  But, that card had been designed  several weeks ago. So I wanted to come up with a new card that was completely different for this Challenge.  I wanted to challenge myself and play along with the talented design team over at Fab Friday. Check out all the great cards by the Fab Friday Design Team.

This is the banner for the Fab Friday Challenge:


So, today’s card is for a college roommate. Nan and I try to have dinner every so often.  I have missed the last two secluded dinner meeting for one reason or the other.  I decided that it was time to tell her hello and that I am so sorry for bailing out! I hope we get to catch up soon and that she know I miss her.  Along with my other roommate.  I need to make them a card also.  We all have such busy lives it is hard to keep in touch.  I note is a great little way to say, “I’m thinking of you” or “I miss you”.  Friends are  so important in life.  It’s nice to know that we can still connect with long time friends.

Here is my Card:Hello with DotsThis card is a clean and simple one layer card.  That really depends on a great color scheme to bring the card together.  I Love the simple scripted hello.  It is from the new  Greetings thinlits.   In the greetings thinlits you get three scriped words hello, thanks, and  cheers.   You may recognize the dot’s from Tuesday’s post.  They are the dots from Watercolor Wings.  I told you that I love dot’s and that you would be seeing more of them…..I’m sure this still holds true….More dot’s are yet to come.

Here are the details of today’s card:

  • My card base is  from the note card and envelope pack.  I truly like this size of card.
  • Stamp the dots in Mossy Meadow, Lost Lagoon, and Blackberry Bliss
  • Using Mossy Meadow card stock cut out the hello thinlit with the Big Shot machine.  A little tip…When using thinlits and detail dies if you put a piece of parchment paper between the card stock and the die . The card stock will come apart from the die much easier.
  • Adhere the hello to the card base.  I did this using a sticker maker by xyron. (not a Stampin’ Up! product but, still great)  Maybe, one day they will start carrying this great product.  it is perfect for small die cuts such as this hello.

That’s it. So simple and clean.  Now if you really want to make your card stand out.  Remember to decorate your envelope.  I went slightly over board with my envelope decorating.  I like it though. And my friend Nan will know that I miss seeing her.   hello with dots 3
