Hello Card
by Donna Sledzik


Hello everyone!  The inspiration for the background of today's card came from this video I watched by Mary Beth Shaw. 

To create the background I took a page from a magazine and placed a stencil underneath it. Next I used a sanding block to lightly sand across the the paper. 


I think dark images work the best and a light hand in sanding is key.  I ripped a few pages before I got the hang of it.  

I glued my image to a piece of cardstock and then trimmed it to fit on my card.  Next I mounted the background on a kraft cardstock mat, then glued it to a white card base.

Using kraft cardstock, I die cut 2 small circles and 1 medium circle from the Geodesic Circle Die set which I glued to my card front.


Next I stamped, watercolored, and die cut my flowers and leaves then glued them to my card. I spattered the card with gold ink and while this was drying, I die cut my word hello from gold metallic cardstock.  


To finish the card I adhered the word hello and added Gold Nuvo Drops to the center of the flowers.

That's it for today!  I hope you have a great week.







that is a neat idea with the stencil, the card is beautiful, love the coloring of the flowers, neat design!

Beautiful card Donna!
