"Hello" Card

Hello, Hello! I made 4 identical "Hello" cards yesterday. I needed to try out my new "Vintage Label" punch and also use some fibers I got this week. The polka dots on the green, pink, and gray cardstocks were made using clear embossing powder and a polka dot stamp. Each strip was 1 1/2 inches wide and 4 inches tall. I also decorative edge-punched the gray end piece.

The patterned paper was a thoughtful gift from my sister, Emily. We love hunting Michael's from great clearance - this design was in a 24 pack of 12 x 12 sheets. They were such a great deal she got one for both my mom and me!

I finished the card with a "Hello" sentiment that I stamped on pink and cream paper I punched using the vintage label punch from McGill. I also sprayed the cream oval with the Perfect Pearls spray from Ranger to add an overall shimmer. Although I kept the spray about 12 inches away it still was a little thick on this small piece of cardstock.
