Elegant Hello

Hello everyone! I'm super excited to be here for my first DT post as part of the Butterfly Reflections, Ink team!  I made an elegant 'hello' card as a way to say hi to you all and that I'm looking forward to sharing my creations with you during the next few months. 

It's easy to turn a simple sentiment in to a statement piece! Just die-cut several times for dimension (I cut four) and emboss it in gold! After gluing all my layers of the Simply Said Hello die together I heat embossed half of it for a gold-dipped look. The Pearl Gold Sparkle embossing powder that I used is SO lovely!!

Paired with the gorgeous Crate Paper Open Book 6x6 collection, a few finishing touches were all it needed. A few light ink splatters using watered down Hot Fudge ink, some gold and South of Market Star sequins and done! Kool Tak Clear Foam and Multi Media Matte were my go-to adhesives for this card. Even though I consider myself a clean and graphic stamper/card-maker, I definitely love to play around in the classy and elegant category too! Layers can be fun (I keep telling myself this lol).

Thanks for joining me today and I'll see you soon!
