Hello


Hi everyone.  Simple CAS card today for The Card Concept Challenge #15 - just LOVE this color combo!




Used a mix of Pool Party Designer Paper to create my four-square background. Hello die is cut from Kiwi Kiss and layered with white die-cuts in-behind to make it thicker ... a little clear Wink of Stella gives it some shimmer.  And finally, added just a little bloom (sponging on the edges for shading) on the tip of the hello die-cut for some fun.







Paper:  Pool Party Designer Paper, Kiwi Kiss (SU!); white (Neenah)
Ink:  Pool Party (SU!)
Accessories & Tools:  Big Shot, Hello die (Simon Says), hydrangea punch (Martha Stewart), clear Wink of Stella pen

you just make the greatest cards, Loll - like your designs more than any other blog i read (and there are quite a few!) i think the reason i like them so much is because they are so classy and distinctive - yet very CAS.
