Hello, Love.

Hello, Love. | shawn

My card today was inspired by the Studio Calico May Card Kit Camelot.

This kit was a box full of ideas and although it included many colorful elements, I opted for some of the more muted tones so the gold embellishments would stand out. Don’t you just love that herringbone vellum? It is so unique. I also used a sewing machine for the first time to stitch gold thread along the top of the champagne grosgrain ribbon that was included in the kit. I think it tied it all together (pun definitely intended).

Although I didn’t use any stamps on this card, I did use craft dies from Mama Elephant; the Embellished Tag Creative Cuts for my tag and the Hello Script Creative Cuts for the sentiment.

I hope you enjoyed. Leave a comment below and check out the other submissions for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches #139 by Rita.

P.S. Here’s a little tip.

To prevent the grosgrain ribbon from fraying, I squeezed out a thin line of Ranger Multi Medium Matte on a craft sheet then dipped the ends of the ribbon. The edges keep their shape and you can’t even tell it’s there!

Hello

Hello | by Shawn

After receiving my Hello Sunshine haul from Lawn Fawn, I decided make this card using sketch #126 from Freshly Made Sketches.

I layered my papers on a Hero Hues Daffodil note card from Hero Arts, which I thought matched the Hello Sunshine patterned paper nicely. The green stripe is finished with a bit of Wink of Stella glitter pen to give it a little shine.
