Hello There

Just Us Girls Challenge #641 – Color Week

Using a matte gold background initially, I then die cut the leaf frame, using an MFT Lots of Leaves die, in coral. Taking a light gray piece I die cut the same frame again and this time selectively hand cut a few leaves to tuck behind the coral layer in several places. Using a Creative Expressions stamp and die set I cut the hello out of both coral and gray, added them together and then to the card front. From the same set I stamped the smaller word onto a scrap piece of coral, fussy cut, and then glued underneath the Hello. I had wanted to stamp the word directly to the card front but it simply wouldn’t stamp clearly enough so fussy cutting meant I could make it look okay. A few gold gems from Trinity stamps and I called it finished.

    1. Thanks Lisa – I originally thought I might layer the entire two frames together but decided to cut one apart instead.


    1. Thanks – tucking in the gray under the coral seemed to lift the colours more as the gold is quite strong underneath.


  1. I’m so happy you like it. I enjoy participating in the challenges although I find the colour ones the most challenging of them all.
