Hello Card using the FREE Design of the Week

Hello Card by Janet Packer (Crafting Quine) free design #cardmaking #papaercraft #dimension #lettering #hello

Hiya - here's a pretty card using this week's free design of the week from the Silhouette store - the  Hello phrase: Design id #145991). I mixed it up with another file from the store, the Floral Congrats card from Jennifer Wambach and an extra word made from the Grassy Meadow font by Sweet Elsie. This one is all about the dimension!

Silhouette Cameo/Portrait
White Cardstock (cover weight)
White Cardstock (printable weight)
Black Cardstock
Card Adhesive
Adhesive foam tape
Glossy Accents
Clear Wink of Stella pen
Grassy Meadow Font Download (#119456)
Hello File Download (#145991)
Floral Congrats 5 x 7 Card (#145256)

Here are my construction steps:
  • Open the Congrats card in the Silhouette Design software and resize all to approximately 5.5" x 7.7"
  • Make a card blank to fit
  • Open the Hello file and copy in the flowers from the Congrats card
  • Write the word 'friend' in Grassy Meadow font
  • Make up a print and cut sheet with the 'Hello" letters, flowers, centres and friend word, making duplicates as required (and some extras for insurance)

  • Cut and Print and Cut all pieces
  • Assemble layering friend pieces and flowers.
  • Use a guide to align the 'Hello' letters (see my Perfect Letter Placement post for more tips) using foam tape for some dimension

  • Attach everything with card glue and add some glitter to the petals and centres with the Wink of Stella pen
  • Finish with some Glossy Accents in the flower centres.
  • Job done!

The Hello phrase  is available free in the Silhouette Design store for one week from 17th August 2016.

I hope you like this one.
