Hello Friend

Hi everyone! I'm here to share a quick card I created using some left over scraps that I had laying around. The card base measures 3"x5 1/2" folded. I cut eleven strips of cardstock and scrapbook paper in various sizes and inked  all edges to fit on the base of the card. I glued the ends of two of the strips of cardstock, the height and width of the card base, then proceeded to "weave" the strips of paper and once finished glue all ends down on the base of the card.


The wooden hello blurb I had found it in the clearance section at Michael's. I loved the fact that it was only 10¢. I just love a good bargain. :-) I sprayed the blurb with Tattered Angels Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Mist. I printed the "friend" on cardstock, cut into a banner, inked edges and adhered underneath the hello blurb. I finished it off with a sequin and Dew drop.


I love how you can see the cardstock through the hello blurb!  If you have any questions about this card please let me know.


Thanks for stopping by, hope your Monday is wonderful and enjoy creating!
