Did you ever think that waving to a neighbor and saying hello could be so exhilarating?! After several days of rain in Atlanta, we went for a walk yesterday afternoon. It was warm, the birds were chirping and our neighbors were getting out of their houses for a little fresh air. Maintaining an appropriate distance, it was exciting to see faces and share a smile. Like the world we now live in, today’s “hello” card is a little puzzling (see what I did there?). Here’s my card for the FabFriday color challenge that kicks off today:
- Puzzle Pieces. As we reach the end of Sale-a-Bration, I’m reaching back to the Annual Catalog for some fun products that might not be at the top of your wish list (but should be if you don’t already have them). I used the Puzzle Pieces dies to crop four puzzles – one in each of the colors for this challenge. I then pulled pieces from each of the puzzles to create a pattern with all four. What fun! Here’s a look at the Puzzle Pieces Dies: The Puzzle Pieces Dies coordinate with the Love You to Pieces stamp set (SEE IT HERE), although I didn’t use any of these images on this card. Since you are going to pick up the Puzzle Pieces Dies, though, you should go ahead and pick up the stamp set, too. ♥
- Vellum Halo. If you follow me regularly, then you already know how much I love to frame a sentiment with a panel of vellum – especially when there’s a fun pattern in the background. My sentiment was cropped with a 1-1/2″ Circle punch, and I framed it with a larger circle from the Layering Circles Dies. Here’s a closer look: The vellum really adds something special – and it’s quite sturdy, so each layer is popped up with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
- 4-1/4″ x 4-1/4″. The Post Office charges extra for square envelopes, so a lot of people avoid them like the plague (which has new meaning these days). There’s something special, though, about a square card – and you don’t have to stop making them. As long as the square card will fit in a rectangular envelope, you are good! ♥ My card base is 4-1/4″ x 4-1/4″ so it fits perfectly inside one of Stampin’ Up!’s Medium envelopes – love it!
