Hello Card

Hello Crafty Friends - Annie here with a featuring some Hexagons and Leaves dies.

Let's get started

First, I trimmed the Kraft cardstock to 8" x 9". Then, I scored the cardstock from top to bottom at 4"I then creased the card base. 

Next, I taped the card base to a clipboard and using the stencil I applied some of the Glitter Paste. I then gently peeled off the tape and place the card base onto my craft table and I did some splatters with the Heidi Swapp Bronzer Colorshine. I then set it aside to dry. 

Next, I die cut from heavyweight White cardstock the following: 2 of the tall leaves, 1 small hexagon, 2 hexagon frames (I created those by nesting the hexagons and running them through the die cutting machine together), 4 hello words. I also die cut 1 hello word from the Metallic Copper cardstock.

Then, I took one of the Leaves and some Distress Oxide Ink and colored the leaf. I simply smudged the ink onto my craft mat and added a bit of water. Next, I ran the leaf through the watered down ink. I heat set it with my heat tool. Then, I added a bit of Heidi Swapp Chartreuse Colorshine. I use the nozzle wand and add the color where I want it.  

Now, the card base is dry and it's time to build the card.

I start by running the Hexagon frames and the hellos through my Xyron 3" Sticker Maker. Then, place the frames - the large one first, then the smaller one just overlapping and towards the top. Next, I adhered the leaves. I add a bit of Xyron Mega Runner at the bottom of the leaves and a bit of foam adhesive in the center of the leaves (I simply trimmed a small sliver of foam adhesive).

Next, I adhered the small hexagon with foam adhesive onto the card. Making sure that the leaves are just tucked under the hexagon. Then, I stacked the 4 white hellos together. Next, the Copper hello on top of the 4 stacked hellos to created a nice firm chipboard piece. I then place it onto the small hexagon.

The card is almost done. For a finishing touch, I added a few drops of Nuvo Crystal Drops in Copper Penny. Next to the leaves and the sentiment and around the card.

Now, the card is complete!
