Hello Friend card


Last Thursday I shared my friend Jill’s ‘congrats’ card that she created with the Well Written dies…

If you read Jill’s blog post you’ll know that Well Written doesn’t contain the word congrats but that she chopped up other die cuts to use the letters she wanted for her card. I reckon she’s a genius!!

So I decided to have a go and created this card…

The Well Written dies do contain the word friend but not hello. I cut the h from hooray and die cut welcome twice to get the other letters. Jill obviously has more skill than me as you can’t see the join with hers and there’s a little gap between my second L and the O. I must try harder! Lol.

I still think this is a fabulous way to get even more out of an already amazing set of dies. I hope you agree.

My card base is Whisper White thick card measuring 21 x 14.5 cm, scored and folded on the long side at 10.5 cm to create a tent fold.

I added a layer of Mango Melody card measuring 10 x 14 cm and a layer of See A Silhouette designer series paper measuring 9.5 x 13.5 cm. I love the fabulous bright colours in this paper pack. This particular sheet looks like someone has used Pigment Sprinkles but without the mess I’d probably end up in! The opposite side has the hexagon patter that I cut sections from to line the top and bottom of my card.

For my die cuts I used Pacific Point card as it’s one of the many colours featured in this designer series paper. The little heart is from the Well Written set too.

I added another piece of the hexagon design paper to the inside of my card for a little added extra…

I really hope you’ve enjoyed today’s colourful card and Jill’s fabulous idea for the Well Written dies.

I’ll be sharing more projects from my friends Jill, Gez and Verity tomorrow so I’m sure we’ll all get even more inspiration then.

Happy crafting,
