Hello you!

Hi There!

The card I have to share today was inspired by the latest class from Online Card Classes, Stretch Your Dies. An easy yet effective technique, using the negative space of the dies, leaving the positive diecuts to use on another card.

The dies I have used are from Little B's set Bouquet. I love these dies, they are versatile and can be paired to cut in a different manner.

The sentiment strip is from My Favorite Things, Blueprints 21 and the 'hello' diecut, cut from a coloured foam sheet, is from Wplus9,  Hand Lettered Hello

I used Liquid Pearls in Onyx Pearl for embellishing. Rather than squirting the paint directly on the card front, I dotted pearls onto a craft sheet and left them to dry, then lifted and glued them on with Multi Medium Matte. The diecut piece has been mounted with foam tape and placed onto the card base, giving dimension to the card and the same has been done with the sentiment strip.

I am entering this into the following challenges:
