Hello, How Are You?


I have a happy thinking of you sort of card today using the new Creative Cafe Kit from The Rubber Cafe called Petticoat Fashion.

 1.  This is an A2 card, so I cut the green cardstock to 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 inches and attached it to a white folded A2 card.
2.  I cut some of the designer paper to 5 1/4 x 4 inches and attached it to the prepared card.
3.  I cut Scor-Tape measuring 1 x 2 1/2 inches and attached them down the left side of the prepared card.
4.  Remove the tape protectors one at a time and add glitter.  I used the following You're so Fine Glitters:  Limeade Green, Blue Skies, Lilac Purple, Purple Rocks and the pink glitter that is included in this month's kit.
5.  Burnish the glitters well with your fingers.

 6.  Once burnished use the Hello stamp from the Hello World stamp set included with this kit along with black Stazon ink to stamp on each of the colored glitters.

HINT:  Before stamping with a solid stamp like this, stamp it off a time or two to condition it.
HINT:  Make sure your Stazon ink pad is freshly inked and press the stamp firmly into the glitter.


7.  Then, as a finishing touch, stamp how are you vertically up the side of the card along with one of the swirls.

There you have it, a quick and fun card that packs a punch and is super flat for mailing!
