Hello Card by Wendy Kessler

Supplies used are all Close to My Heart: Make it From Your Heart Volume 2 (Pattern 25), Heartstrings Paper Packet, White Daisy Cardstock, Honeycomb Embossing Folder, Lagoon Hearts Washi Tape, Black Ink, Glacier Ink, and Aqua Dots.

I wanted to do a card that wasn’t Valentine’s or love-themed as you’d think of when you first look at this stamp set, so I chose the Hello image and arrows.  I started off with Pattern 25 from Make it From Your Heart Volume 2 but after looking at the finished card I’m not sure that it resembles the pattern anymore.  That’s the great thing about these books is that they give you a great start, whether or not it looks like it when you are done!  For the “Hello”, I stamped first in Black Ink, then cleaned my stamp and inked in Glacier Ink and offset the image.  It’s kind of a funky image as is and this adds character to the card.

Now “Hop” on over to Michelle Battitori’s Blog to see her work! Be sure to visit all the Consultants at their Blogs to get some great crafting ideas and other fun ideas! Remember, the This Moment Stamp Set is only available through the end of January.

This set is available on my website for only $5 with a $50 purchase.  Shop now!
