The Friendly Hello Sale-a-bration Bundle is so pretty I keep gravitating towards it. The great news is, it’s FREE with a $100 order! You can see all of the paper and stamps in the bundle by clicking on the picture in my Product List below.

Today’s card spotlights the bird against a gorgeous background.

I began with a Fresh Freesia card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″. Then, I used the largest Scalloped Contours Die to cut my favorite, Pool Party pattern.

Spotlighted Bird


The backside of the Pool Party pattern is the one I used to cut the bird with a Layering Circles Die, a 2 1/8″ circle. The circle is bordered with Fresh Freesia Cardstock, cut with a scalloped Layering Circles Die that is a spec larger than the plain circle.

Next, I decided on the sentiment from the Friendly Hello Stamp Set, “HELLO friend.” Appropriate, huh? I stamped it in Shaded Spruce Ink, using my Stamparatus so it would be nice and dark.


For a little something extra, I used a Birds & More Die to cut a branch from another pattern of Friendly Hello Designer Paper. It’s the one I’m using for photography.


Today’s card was also made for a monthly ZOOM meeting. This month we were given a Tic Tac Toe challenge, where everyone participated by making a card and presenting it to the group. I used the middle row down: Circle-FREE-SAB item. Join my team, and join the fun; click on the link below!
