Sweet Hello Die Cut Card

Do you want to know why I love alpha dies? Because you can completely customize your sentiment! Cut whatever word you want from whatever color or pattern that you want! How fun! Watch my video on the LDRS Creative YouTube Channel to see how this bright and colorful card came together! 

I used double sided adhesive to completely cover a piece of typing paper. You want to use a thin piece of scrap paper/cardstock so that the dies can easily cut through both layers of paper and the adhesive. I cut a rainbow of colored cardstocks to 1/8" in width and added them to the adhesive backed paper. Once I had my rainbow strips stuck down, I grabbed the letters to spell out the word "hello" from the Jordan Alphas Jumbo Upper Dies and cut them from my rainbow paper.

I cut a piece of black cardstock to 4 1/4" x 2 3/8" - just big enough for the sentiment with a bit of a border. I wanted to have an accompanying sentiment, so I stamped one from the Cosmos 4x6 Stamps with Raven Hybrid Ink and used the Cosmos Coordinating Dies to cut it out.

I cut a piece of white cardstock to 4" x 5 1/4" and stamped the Old Brick Wall 6x6 Stamp with Alloy Hybrid Ink. No card is complete without some spatters, so I used my black watercolor paint to add some texture to the background. I added it onto a black card base and added my sentiment piece with foam tape to finish the card. That's it!
