This Oh, Hello! flower greeting card came together quickly with a sketch and dsp inspiration. The sketch is below and was created from the Easter card I made in March. The designer series paper is part of the new Stampin’ Up! This and That product line. Today and tomorrow you can get the This and That bundle and save 15%!!
I created three cards with this sketch last week: Oh Whale baby card, the Epic Day butterfly thank you card, and the Hello card featured here today. Each card was inspired by the sketch but each looks totally different from the others. That’s what I love about sketches! You have a starting point but the results are unique depending on the materials you use.
For today’s card, I used the colors from the This and That Epic Day dsp and stamped the chevron background in Daffodil Delight. Then I stamped Oh Hello in Black StazOn. I purposely trimmed my dsp so that the Calypso Coral that you see in the upper left corner showed up in my piece.
On a scrap paper I colored in the flower stamp with Calypso Coral and Gumball Green markers then added shadowing with Always Artichoke and Cajun Craze before stamping. I covered the stamped flower with Versamark ink and embossed it with clear embossing powder. Then I carefully cut it out with my Paper Snips. I also cut out another blossom from Calypso Coral cardstock and layered that underneath the flower for additional dimension.
I wrapped the die cut oval with Linen Thread by notching the sides with a small paper punch. I added the flower over the thread with Dimensionals and then tied a knot of Linen Thread and glued it to the stem with Multipurpose Liquid glue. It’s a whole lot easier to do it that way than to try to tie a knot around that tiny delicate stem!Here’s the card recipe: (All supplies are Stampin’ Up!
