Hello! Seeka here and today I’m sharing a quick and easy card featuring the Ring Tile stencil and the Hello Topper die.

I started off by using low-tack Purple Tape to tape an A2-sized piece of bristol smooth cardstock to the stencil. Then I used foam blending tools to blend Victorian Velvet, Seedless Preserves, and Wilted Violet Distress Oxide inks over the stencil, blending the colors where they met to create a gradient effect.

Next, I die cut the Hello sentiment and shadow layers out of white cardstock. I cut the sentiment four times, and the shadow layer twice, so that I could stack and adhere them together for a bit of dimension. Using the negative space of a die cut to help hold the sentiment in place, I blended Seedless Preserves and Wilted Violet over one layer of “Hello” before adhering all of the pieces together.

I trimmed the background to 4″ x 5.25″ and then adhered the sentiment’s shadow layer along the bottom, trimming off any excess that extended past the edges of the background. Then I stamped the “my crafty friend” sentiment in pigment ink. This sentiment is part of a stamp from the Just Because stamp set.

To finish, I adhered the ink-blended sentiment onto the shadow layer, and then adhered the card front to an A2-sized card base.

Thank you so much for visiting!
