Paper Smooches~Hello diesMy projects feature the new Hello dies. I stamped the card using the new Botanicals 2 stamp set and layered several die cut sentiments to get a thicker hello.
Paper Smooches~Hello diesFor this next card, I trimmed several banners using pattern paper scraps and sewed them onto the side of the card. I also added a little Mr. Huey’s white mist and a couple sequins.
Paper Smooches~Hello diesThe Hello was layered again, just like the first card, but this time I used some neon pink cardstock on the top. I stamped the “you” from the new Scripty Sayings stamp set.
