Good Morning! Today I have a fun Hello card made with the Stampin’ Up! Playful Alphabet Dies and the Playing with Patterns designer series paper. This was my first attempt as using these letter dies, so I wanted to keep it simple. You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.
I also used the new adhesive sheets for the words. I cut a strip of the adhesive sheets, and peeled off the backing and laid it on a strip of Night of Navy card stock that I used to cut the words. I cut the adhesive strip about 1/8″ all around shorter than the card stock so I wouldn’t need to worry about sticky glue on the front of the card stock. I placed the letter dies from the Stampin’ Up! Playful Alphabet Dies for HELLO on the other side of the card stock and ran it through my die cutting machine. It cut pretty cleanly and there was no sticky residue from the sheetss. I also die cut the Coastal Cabana label with a label from the Stitched Rectangles Dies. I carefully peeled the adhesive backing off each letter and placed it on the Coastal Cabana label. I adhered the label to a Night of Navy mat.
I cut the striped paper from the Playing with Patterns designer series paper with another Stitched Rectangle Die and adhered it to a Night of Navy mat. I adhered it to the front of a Coastal Cabana card base with dimensionals. I adhered the label to the card front with more dimensionals.
I used the new Confetti Flowers Border Punch to punch some flowers from Purple Posy card stock. I adhered five to the card front with liquid glue and colored some pearls with Night of Navy Stampin’ Blend for the flower centers.
I adhered three of the Purple Posy flowers to the top corner of a Whisper White panel and another strip of the Playing with Patterns DSP to the bottom. I adhered the panel to the inside of the card.
I was pretty impressed at how well the word fit in the Stitched Rectangle Die – I guess I really lucked out. I love the font of the letters in the Stampin’ Up! Playful Alphabet Dies! They are bold, clean, modern and easy to read. And there are numbers and double letters (I was able to cut both ‘L’s at the same time) and special symbols!
This was also the first time I used the adhesive sheets, and I was also impressed with how well they work. They leave a very fine adhesive film that sticks really well. I’ll definitely be using them more often.
