C4C239 - Hello

Hello! ;) It's Saturday, which means it's time for another Crazy 4 Challenges challenge.  This week, we were tasked with creating a masculine card.  Masculine cards are hard for me on any given day, but throw in reeling from the sudden and unexpected loss of one of our pets, and my mojo was nowhere to be found.  I thought about sitting out this week (and almost did!), but in the end, I'm glad I pushed through.  It was nice to have a 30 minute distraction from my obsessive thoughts about Tigerlily. :(

Anyhoooo, onto my card... To create my card, I pulled out two of my favorite go-to designs from Whimsy Stamps, Happy Hello (stars) and the Hello Word Die.  I love the font they used for the hello, and find myself reaching for it again and again.  

I tapped some navy mist from a paintbrush onto the gray card base, then gave it a quick blast from a heat gun to dry the ink.  Next, I die cut 5 hellos (4 from white CS, and 1 from patterned paper), then glued them together with Tombo liquid adhesive.  While those were drying, I stamped a cluster of stars from Happy Hello in Versamark, then heat embossed them with white powder.  To finish up, I adhered the sentiment to the card front and embellished with teal enamel dots.  And that folks is the closest I come to creating masculine cards. Lol...

Want to play along with us this week? All you need to do is create a card/project incorporating the colors orange, turquoise and kraft, and link up to the C4C239 blog post! :)

Have a great one.
