Striped Hello for GDP020

Inspiration

I have a super fun striped hello card for you today.  Inspiration comes from the Global Design Project Case the Designer Challenge and this week we are casing Connie Collins!  I loved Connie’s bold black stripes and decided to include that element in my card.  I also took inspiration from Danielle Flanders who made a card back in September using the split sentiment technique I’ve used here.  Here’s  Connie’s card:

GDP020And here’s my card:

Striped Hello

2016 Occasions Catalogue and Sale-a-Bration Brochure

It uses the Hello Stamp Set from the Sale-a-Bration Brochure, only available until February 15th.  The flowers were cut from Tangelo Twist and Melon Mambo cardstock using the Blooming’ Heart Thinlits Dies, and for the little leaves I used one of the dies from the Botanical Builder Framelits Dies and cut three from Wild Wasabi.  Some Rhinestone Basic Jewels and the new two-tone Basic Black/Melon Mambo Baker’s Twine finishes it off.

Striped Hello

The sentiment was created by stamping in Versamark ink on Basic Black cardstock then embossing in white before cutting sections out of the Basic Black cardstock.  The sentiment was stamped again in Basic Black Archival ink on a piece of Whisper White cardstock.

Of course I had to decorate the inside:

The flowers come from the Botanical Blooms Stamp Set.  I just adore all these new products in the 2016 Occasions Catalogue and Sale-a-Bration Brochure, don’t you?  I can’t wait to share some more projects with you, so stay tuned!

I hope you’ve enjoyed sharing my card today.  I love to read your comments, so if you have the time, let me know what you think.
