Many Hellos
by Laura Fulcher


Greeting friends. I posted another card the other day using the same flower and hello dies. I wanted a chance to share a different design with you. One piece of advice I have for cardmakers is to cut several extra dies while you have your die cutting machine out. There is nothing better when making a card than to find out that you had already die cut the pieces. I store my extras in the same envelope as the the dies so that I don't lose them.

For today's card, I cut out the word hello many times from the same pack of green paper to get a gradient of colors. On my last card, I used the solid pieces of the word hello, and on this card, I used the outlines of the letters. It is great to get different looks from the same die.

I layered my words onto the card so that each row was a different color of green. I started at the bottom and then worked my way up to the top so that I wouldn't have a weird gap in the middle of the card to try and fit my letters.

Here is a close up:


To finish the card, I added some flowers that I cut the other day and added some leaves from an older die set.

I hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend!







neat background and I just love the coloring of the flowers!
