Woodgrain Masculine Hello

I used the woodgrain cardstock that the hello word was cut from for the previous card and inlaid a black hello into the negative space. Tied some black cording above the word and a clean and simple masculine hello card was done in no time.

Black and White Masculine Hello

Once again I had some leftover patterned paper from a previous card and couldn’t let it go to waste. This time I decided to pair some black cardstock with the nearly white woodgrain. For the stips below I used a Pretty Pink Posh border die to add some visual interest. Added a hello die cut from some weathered wood cardstock and liked the way it turned out.

Masculine On the Edge Hello

I had some leftover patterned paper from the previous card and decided to use it for a masculine hello card. I paired it with some woodgrain cardstock. I decided to cut the hello word on the edge of some mirror cardstock and place it on the seam of the two patterned papers. It seemed off balance to me so I added some thin strips of the mirror cardstock and liked the results.

Beautiful Flower Hello

I was in need of a hello card to send to a new member of our ward at church and saw this leftover flowers from another project I had created and decided to put it to good use. I pulled out some patterned paper from My Mind’s Eye Heritage, cut it on the diagonal, and added the pretty flower at the intersection, which a die cut hello added in gold. Turned out pretty and required very little effort.

Pop of Red Hello

When I saw these two black and white patterned papers in the October Simon Says Stamp card kit I immediately wanted to pair them together. I decided to cut them using a rectangle die from My Favorite Things and then use a border die from Pretty Pink Posh to cut them on the diagonal. What is more striking on black and white than to add a pop of red. Love the way they turned out.
