Just saying hello again

As usual my area where I work is a complete mess, it will be tidied up again one day soon. As I was looking for inspiration for my next hello card I came across a pack of Sandylion vellum stickers that I have had forever, I have no idea what the stickers were doing on my desk but for me it was a sign that I had to use them.

I had been wanting to take part in the butterfly theme challenge over at The card concept for sometime but couldn't come up with any ideas until I found these stickers. For this card I used the whole pack of stickers, I randomly stuck them on a white piece of A5 cardstock and then printed the sentiment "hello" over the stickers using "Before the rain" font, as I mentioned before I love this font and I think that it has made an impact on this card . I have got a few new things to work with when it comes to card making but it always gives me a sense of satisfaction to work with my old stash and that is exactly what I did on this card.

The card concept-Butterfly theme
I have used the Clean and graphic style-
  • clean lines
  • simple treatment of text
  • no frills
  • bare boned
  • message is communicated quickly
