AAA Cards - #81 Hello

AAA Cards is back today with the first of its 2017 challenges and we've decided it's a great idea to kick off the year by saying hello!

Time for one of my favourite techniques from last year to make its first appearance this year - inlaid dies.  I die cut and inlaid the word hello from some bold coloured patterned paper into a white card strip. I adhered this to a plain white card.

Then to emphasise the slight difference in heights this created I used a strip of washi tape in a similar pattern to the paper.

And finished off my card by stamping the numerals 2017.

Stamps: Uniko, Classic Numbers
Inks: SU, night of navy
Die: Lawn Fawn, Scripty Hello
Paper: Lawn Fawn, Beachside

The AAA Cards team and out Guest Designer Valentyna have a whole wealth of stunning ideas about ways to say hello - check them all out here.

Thanks for your time today, it's been fabulous having you visit my blog, you're welcome back any time!  And keep crafting!
