I know (um, hope?) I am not alone in my thinking. Raise your hand if you start singing “Hello, Hello! I don’t know why you say good-bye, I say hello!” when you are using this sentiment stamp.
Which answers the question in the title: what do these two things have in common? My card! I am kind of disappointed that neither my husband nor my daughter “got it” with the sentiment. I did put a comma in after the first “HELLO” but they still didn’t get it.
Here’s my card:
Here’s the challenge banner from Global Design Project # 246:
I have to confess that I also wanted this to be for another challenge with a theme of “sunshine”. However, I forgot the other half of that challenge called for clean and simple. Oops!A (Somewhat) Quick Collage
When I started looking at the challenge banner for #GDP246, I immediately thought of the sunflowers. I also knew I did not want to color as many as I would need. So, I grabbed the Flowers for All Seasons 6 x 6 DSP and pulled out a couple of sheets of this pattern.
A (Somewhat) Quick Collage
Amazingly, since I knew exactly what I wanted to do, I was able to get everything together so I only needed to use the Big Shot at one time. I would save so much time if I did this for all my cards. Just saying.
Using the Sunflower Dies, I carefully and strategically cropped out nine sunflowers. It will just be our secret that some of the sunflowers on the bottom layers are only partial sunflowers. I carefully dry-fit all the flowers together before I adhered anything down.
At the same time that I cropped the sunflowers, I also cropped the leafy stems, again using the Flowers for All Seasons DSP. These leafy stems are from the same pattern that I used for the strip down the right side of the card.
While I was at the Big Shot, I ran a piece of white cardstock through it using the Layered Leaves 3D embossing folder. For so many cards, I use the more subtle embossing folders, especially for a clean and simple card. However, I thought this collage could hold its own with a pattern like all these leaves.
At this point, I used the dark Cinnamon Cider blend to color three of the pearl basic jewels. There are multiple layers of color on each one, and it’s a good idea to let the layers dry between applications.
I also thought I would need something to anchor the two sentiment ovals on the card. The new Just Jade ribbon fit the bill perfectly when I tied it in a square knot.
After using the multipurpose adhesive to attach the leafy stems and flowers, I added mini-dimensionals to the back of the sentiment ovals. While I was at it, I added a leafy stem in the dotted DSP and a vellum leafy stem to the back of the ovals as well.
I added the three Cinnamon Cider pearls in a triangle formation to the front of the card. They coordinate beautifully, and become part of the collage.
Finally, I added an extra cropped sunflower to the bottom, left side of the envelope front and the dotted DSP to the envelope flap.
With that, I’d completed this card/envelope set.
