Bright Rainbow Hello Floral Card with

Tuesday, October 18, 2022

Do you have a card idea and it doesn't really come out how you were planning? But you go with it and even though it may not be your most favorite card you have ever made, it's got spunk and character so you keep it anyway? That's a bit what happened with this Hello card.

I wanted a rainbow, floral card and used the colors from the SBC Rainbow Patterned Paper Pad for inspiration. I also used the Hello Bloom stamp set that is coming soon to with the same colors - all the colors used are Distress Oxides. And this card is BRIGHT! The flowers I stamped and die cut didn't turn out how I was thinking originally, so I'm definitely going to try again on another card.

However, I still love how bright and happy this card is! Even though I might alter the flowers in the future (I can't leave well enough alone), I know this card would definitely lift someone's spirits. Here is how I put together my card:

The green background and circle are die cut from patterned paper and I layered the stenciled background with foam adhesive. The circle is glued directly to the stenciled background and I used thin foam strips to add the sentiment. "Hello" is die cut from white cardstock and the shadow from silver glitter paper. The flowers are then just added with adhesive around the circle to create a wreath look and of course added in some Pops of Color in Silver to giv eit a little more shine around the card.

Have you ever made a card that turn out how you expected? Do you keep going or do you start over?
