Hello and happy Friday! Today’s card is a cheery Friendly Hello birthday card – again using new products from Sale-a-bration AND the new January to June 2022 Mini Catalog. I call these ‘teasers’, ‘cuz they tease you into wanting more and patiently (or not) waiting to get your hands on new products. :O) They will be available Jan. 3, 2022. As a demonstrator, I am privileged to be able to purchase new product before it becomes available to the public: to play, create , inspire.

Friendly Hello Birthday.1

The stamp set (Friendly Hello) comes from the Sale-a-bration catalog and is a FREE item when purchasing $50 worth of product. The Designer Series Paper (DSP) is from the J-J 2022 Mini Catalog. This color is Granny Apple Green. The stamp set is created as a duplicate of some of the images of this paper pack. And you can see here that I utilized it on these flowers, then colored them with Stampin’ Blends (Soft Sea Foam and Granny Apple Green). The image was stamped using Memento Black ink.

Once stamped and colored I mounted it on a panel of Granny Apple Green card stock with a very narrow border. I then tied a length of Crinkled Seam Binding ribbon around both pieces & tied a knot. I stamped the sentiment in Memento Black ink on a Basic White strip then die cut it with as die from All Dressed Up Dies. I added two Matte Decorative Dots to each end of the die cut, put dimensionals on the back and adhered it over the ribbon. I added a glue dot under the knot to hold it in place. This completed panel was adhered to the Thick Basic White card front with Stampin’ Seal – and the front was complete.

Friendly Hello Birthday, inside

I added a strip of the same Friendly Hello 12 x 12 DSP near the bottom of the card, then stamped this sweet floral ‘bouquet’ in Memento Black ink above it. Again, I mounted it to a panel of Granny Apple Green card stock, then into the inside of the card – and voila! the card is done…

Friendly Hello Birthday.3

For the envelope, I added more of this bright Friendly Hello 12 x 12 DSP to the flap, then stamped the same floral bouquet to the front of the envelope. Finis! Here is a photo of the stamp set & the bright glorious papers.
