How to Make a Simple “Hello” Card

Adele: “Hello, it’s me….”

Lionel Ritchie: “Hello, is it me you’re looking for?

Regardless of which song you love (both!), there’s something about sending a homemade card just because you want to let the other person know you are thinking of them.

We love this “hello” card. We used an old stamp we found in Liz’s collection as the sentiment. Sorting through our cardstock, we decided to make a flower. Using our heart punch, we made petals using blue embossed paper and scrapbooking paper. We rounded the ends of the hearts and snipped the tops of the hearts using the We R Memory Keepers Alphabet Punch Board. You can use scissors to achieve the same effect.

We layered the paper and added a gem for interest and beauty.

Don’t mind the iPhone reflection in the mirror-like gem.

We cut the shiny green stem from paper that teachers normally use to decorate bulletin boards. Liz had previously bought this paper from a discount dollar store years ago.

Liz found an old hummingbird sticker and attached it to the card.

We finally added a sun and cut out corners from polka-dot cardstock. Adding it to the sentiment created a balanced look.

Now we need to figure out who to send this “hello” card to!
