hello card share

Welcome to Day 4 of my Studio Calico Blog Appreciation week!! Towards the end of last week I received my latest 2peas order with lots of the new Studio Calico. I picked up items from the Classic Calico and Memoir collections. I knew right away that I wanted to make a card with some of those yummy papers from Memoir. Love the different colors in this collection and I can't wait to pick up some of the Mister Huey's that go along with it.

I trimmed 1/2 inch strips off a few of the different patterns and adhered them to a scrap piece of cardstock on an angle. I just kept adding strips and trimming off the ends until I had covered the entire scrap piece. Then I rounded the bottom two corners. I added a few strips across the card from what was left of my original 1/2 inch strips, and layered the strip piece over that. For the sentiment, I stamped the sunburst and the hello sentiment onto white cardstock and embossed with white embossing powder. I then cut it out using a 2 inch circle punch (for the record, it's not quiet the right size, but it's close enough). Then I misted the circle with some new Mister Huey's in Dewey. I added some stitching lines to finish it off!

I'll be back tomorrow with the fifth and final day of Studio Calico blog appreciation week. Until then, thanks for stopping by!
