Oh hey there

Today, I’m making a hello card. I’m using supplies from a monthly subscription card kit by Spellbinders. The kits are available as stand alone purchases if the don’t sell out, but they will cost more per unit than if you purchased the subscription. Of course, you can always follow the layout and use your own pattern paper to make a similar card. You’ll need to choose two pieces of pattern paper: one that is monochromatic like the blue one below (it only uses blue colors, one lighter and one darker) and one that is bold and busy, but has the same color as the monochromatic piece. Use the dies listed below to cut out the tags and put the scallop border on the edge of the pattern paper and white cardstock. Then, you’ll have to decorate the tag any way you’d like.

Affiliate links are below the video and here for your convenience. Here is what you’ll need:

I chose two pieced of patterned paper from the kit. One was a mono-chromatic color scheme so it made a perfect background paper. The second was more bold with lots of colors and images. Here’s what to do next:

  • Trim the background piece to 2 inches
  • Trim the bold piece to 2.5 inches
  • Adhere the bold piece to the front of the card on the right side
  • Use the Avery Elle Dotted Borders Die to cut a scalloped edge on the background piece
  • Use the same die to cut a scalloped edge out of white cardstock
  • Adhere those two scalloped border pieces to each other so the white one sticks out
  • Adhere the scalloped pieces to the left side of the card, overlapping the bold piece you already adhered to the card
  • Use the largest Poppystamps Festival Tag Die to cut a tag of white cardstock
  • Use the next largest Poppystamps Festival Tag Die to cut a tag of the background piece and one from the bold piece
  • Adhere the background tag to the cardstock tag
  • Decorate the front of the card with the die cut shapes as seen in the video below
  • Decorate the inside of the card as seen in the video below
