Hello again! Lovely to see you as always.
I've a quick card to share today. More of a playing around kind of affair than for any real need to make.
Believe me, the colours reproduced here don't do it justice. The background is a lovely rich colour, more a burgundy wine and the "hello" is bubblegum pink, not white as it appears here.
However, you still get the idea that this is a punchy design that'll leap out at you. And it's really just to try a technique of cutting out shapes with dies and filling them in again. Looks easy but when I first cut out the "hello" section, I forgot to keep track of where all the tiny shapes that fit back in the loops of the Ls, O & E were. Had to do it again and this time not sweep them away with the side of my hand. And I still needed to hunt round my craft table for some of the pieces.
If you're wondering how everything stays in place, There's a piece of paper attached to the inside of the card. I sprayed it first with adhesive, stuck it inside and then placed the label and word pieces.
Love how it turned out. It presses all my graphic design buttons. The only aspect I'd want to tinker with is the sentiment. If I had a Cricut/Silhouette machine, I'd create cut out words that were more to my taste. More irreverent and cheeky. For the time being, I'll use the dies that are out there. So "hello" and "thanks" etc will have to do - for now lol.
Cheers for dropping by
