Big Hello

With there being 5 Thursday's in June this year we always celebrate at CAS Colours & Sketches with 'The Double' where we set the sketch and the colour. So here it is.....l

Isn't that a great sketch, teamed with luscious summer colours. Just remember to keep it CAS, it's easy to get carried away with these colours to play with!

I used a curved mask to protect part of my card whilst I stamped a background using Gorgeous Grunge, Toughtful Banners and Touches of Texture

Then I die cut 2 'hello's from the Hello You set and layered them up to make them stand out more. 
I stamped one more little pink flower, fussy cut it and popped it on a foam pad and a final one inside, next to the greeting, which is from Perfect Pennants

At Craft Club last night we looked at how much more 'professional' our cards can look with an insert, even if it's just a stamped sentiment with something connecting the design on the front of the card. This was by far the simplest thing we tried out and it has made me think more about the inside and the envelope I use for my cards


  1. Fun card - love the masking to achieve the curve!

  2. Loving all those colourful splodges and great way to achieve the curve from the sketch.

  3. Love your colours and design. Great sentiment for an insert.
    PS I always use an insert, with verse and a link to the front of the card.

  4. I like how you've layered the die-cuts so the sentiment (literally) pops from the background. Using the mask to create the curve is a great way to keep your card one layer.

  5. Love the doubled up sentiment, it's really striking. Great idea. Liz x

  6. I love how you mirrored the sentiment in your DSP, it's a lovely idea. Great take on the double! Caro x

  7. Love how you masked the curve to do your stamping with those beautiful stamps and LOVE the white on white die cut sentiment - FAB! My apologies in being SO late coming by to comment, it's been one of those weeks! Hugs Bev x
