Hello Card

August 20, 2020

Hey Crafters! Katelyn here, sharing with you my Hello Card.

To create my Hello Card, I’ve used a variety of dies from the Sidekick Essentials Collection and Joset Designs. You’ll want to read below as I share with you how to recreate my card at home.

Step One. Choose two or three pieces of patterned paper that all coordinate together. From one of the patterned papers, die cut a 4″ Stitched Indented Rectangle out of the patterned paper. Distress the edges of the rectangle. Ink the edges of the rectangle using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Two. Die cut a 3 3/4″ Fitted Indented Rectangle out of a second piece of patterned paper. Distress the edges of the rectangle. Ink the edges of the rectangle using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Three. Either use a third piece of patterned paper or flip over the patterned paper you just used and die cut a 3 1/2″ Stitched Indented Rectangle. 1/2″ from the bottom on the right hand side, tear the paper a bit into the middle. 1/2″ from the left at the top left hand side, tear the paper down a bit. Distress the edges of the rectangle. Ink the edges of the rectangle using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Four. From the Sidekick Essentials 8 die, die cut the large stitched rectangle out of a piece of vellum.

Step Five. Die cut a 3/4″ Diagonal Stitched Fishtail out of a piece of kraft cardstock. Cut the fishtail down to 2 3/4″. Distress the edges of the fishtail. Ink the edges of the fishtail using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Six. From the Sidekick Essentials 7 die, die cut the leaf bunch and two single leaves out of White Soft Finish Cardstock.

Step Seven. From the Words 2 – Thinking of You die, die cut the Hello word out of black cardstock.

Step Eight. Adhere the 3 1/2″ stitched indented rectangle to the 3 3/4″ fitted indented rectangle.

Step Nine. Adhere the vellum stitched rectangle in the middle of the 3 1/2″ stitched indented rectangle. Adhere the leaf bunch to the bottom middle of the 3 1/2″ stitched indented rectangle. The leaf bunch will sit overtop of the vellum piece. Adhere the other two single leaves as desired around the leaf bunch.

Step Ten. Staple the fishtail 3/8″ from the bottom and all the way to the left hand side of the 3 3/4″ fitted indented rectangle. Adhere the Hello word to the middle of the fishtail.

Step Eleven. Foam square the 3 3/4″ fitted indented rectangle to the middle of the 4″ stitched indented rectangle.

Step Twelve. Cut a piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock that measures 5 1/4″ x 8″, score at 4″. Adhere the cardfront to the cardbase.

Thanks for joining me today! I hope that I’ve inspired you to create your own version of my Hello Card.
