Hello My Precious with Lydia

Hello everyone and happy Friday!  Today I'm sharing with you a 'sort-of' one layer card.

Why I say 'sort-of' is because the letters are die cut but once I had stuck them down I then squished them into the card, you'll find out how further down the post.


I started by taking one of the large flowers from In Bloom: Eva's Favorite Flowers and stamping this in a bright pink in the centre of the card blank. Then I added in the branch and added in a few filler flowers in blue and yellow. To add more colour I choose to layer up the large flower, there are so many different combo layers it's so fun to play with! I added 3 layers in orange, red and purple and I love how those colours work together.


I then cut out the letters for 'hello' using Typecast: Cary Letters Cutaways out of some white card, I had double sided adhesive sheet on this so it would be easy to stick the letters down when cut. Once die-cut I then added the letters into place. To get these to stink down into the card I then ran my whole card through my die cutting machine. I love this effect as you can still see the letters but they are more part of the whole card.


To finish I then added a little added sentiment using Sentimental: Love in black ink. I do love the bold freshness of this card and I hope it inspired you today!

Hugs Lydia x
