My Friend

Every time I see this stamp set I see the big "hello" and then below that to the right is "my friend."  A Neil Diamond song starts paying in my head and I hear the words "Hello my fried, hello."  I know I'm dating myself there a bit but what can I say.  I still like that song!  

I was thinking of a friend of mine and thought I would drop her a line to say hello.  So I headed over to Pinterest to see what I had pinned but wasn't sure what I was going to make.  I just wanted to say "hello" and this stamp set came to mind.  I pulled it off the shelf and realized I had not used it yet. But I recalled making cards with it before.  Well, I had purchased the download and liked it so much that I bought the set.  

I used the Lattice embossing folder for the background of the base of the card.  Then I cut a piece of Wild Wasabi to set on top of that and another piece of white to go on top of the Wild Wasabi.  I only cut it 1/8" smaller so just a sliver of it would show.  

The words came from the "Happy You" hostess set.  I just masked off the kite with a piece of sticky note paper and inked it up, removed the note paper and stamped on the card.  I probably could have used some larger words but I just wanted it to say hello and there wasn't a lot to pick from.  

When I work on my post I always add he photo first and then I type my words.  As I'm looking at the photo I think I should have stamped the words on a separate piece of card stock and punched them out and layered them on a scalloped circle.  Something to fill up that corner more.  Well, that's your job.  You improve on the card and make it dazzling!

Now I'm off to write a few words inside and get it ready for the mail.

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
