July 7 - Hello Card

Earlier this spring I got an email asking if I would stamp some samples for some new stamp sets for the upcoming Stampin' Up! convention in Utah in August and of course, I jumped at the chance! Of the 4 sets I got sent the "Hello Again" set was definitely my favorite.

So here is a quick cute little card made with that set and one of the new In Colors - Crushed Curry!

Hello Card

  • Craft Cardstock (cut 3-3/4" x 7-1/2")
  • Close to Cocoa ink
  • "Hello Again" stamp set
  • Large Oval Punch
  • Scalloped Oval Punch
  • Close to Cocoa Stampin' Write Marker
  • White and Crushed Curry cardstock
  • Scalloped border punch
  • Crushed Curry Polka Dotted ribbon
  • Silver brads
  • Button Bouquet
  1. Fold your kraft cardstock in half to make a square card.
  2. Cut your scalloped border from your white cardstock and adhere it to the bottom of your card.
  3. Stamp 3 flowers in Close to Cocoa across the center of the card.
  4. Adhere your yellow polka dotted ribbon across the bottom over the bottom of the stems and overlapping your scalloped border.
  5. Put brads in the center of the first and third flowers. Adhere a yellow flower button to the center of the middle flower.
  6. Stamp the HELLO greeting stamp in Close to Cocoa on white and punch it out with your large oval punch.
  7. Punch the scalloped oval punch with Crushed Curry cardstock. Layer them together and adhere.
  8. Draw Close to Cocoa dots with your Close to Cocoa pen around your white oval then add it to the top of your card.
