Hello


MIM, is with Stephanie Gold, one of PTI's new designers.
She expertly shows us a striking technique of creating
window chipboard sentiments.


I did my 'Hello' with some pattern card stock I had, 
glued it to a black foam board, 
and die cut my window.
So nice to use Ruby Rose, hadn't inked that set in a while. 
Did a bit of masking to add leaves and bottom posie.



Inside the card


The card and matching envelope.


I've been doing envelopes from PTI's matching pattern card stock, 
and loving how they turn out! A bit sturdier than regular envelopes,
and that way hide the bumps and bling on the cards.

edited to add: the envelope was created by a punch board tool
by We R Memory Keepers. Here's the link on Amazon.
It's a real 'must have' if you like making your own!

  6. Love this card - Ruby Rose is one of my favorites! Just a tip (not a criticism) because I did the same thing - the large leaf should be stamped with the pointed end in. I (and lots of others were stamping with the point out, but then I noticed that Dawn always (as far as I can tell) stamps with the point in. Makes sense once you look at it, especially since the small ones are that way!

  16. Beautiful card Nancy. Do you use a die for the inside of the envelope or cut it yourself?
    I love matching up the envelope!!

  17. Hi Jennifer, not a die, but a tool by We R Memory Keepers: 1-2-3-Punch. It's a real 'must have'. Cuts and scores envelopes of all sizes, bows and boxes. Think I'll edit my post and mention it.

  21. The patterned paper HELLO is so unexpected--love your card, Nancy! Looks like it might open & close a lot better than mine--good die choice! Maybe someday I'll make matching envelopes--usually just feel good getting a card made & mailed--haha!
