Hello card for Paper Rose

 Today, I'm sharing a super simple hello card.

I created a panel of yupo with alcohol inks, and cut it down to create a vertical stripe on my card. I cut the hello layered oval die from white cardstock three times and layered them up before adhering over my yupo panel.

Monochromatic birthday card for Paper Rose

 Sometimes, a monochromatic look is the most elegant. And sometimes, paper in a Christmas pack can work on a birthday card.

I cut a piece of patterned paper from the Snuggly Christmas paper pack to be slightly smaller than a card base and adhered it. I took a piece of white cardstock the same size as the card front and cut with twice with the Flourish Border 2 to create a banner. I stamped the birthday sentiment on the banner with navy ink, and adhered the banner to the card front. I finished with some clear gemstones.

Autumnal birthday card for Hero Arts

 I love using well-designed stencils - they make it easy to create one-layer cards quickly! This one is perfect for autumn, but I also like using leaf images for masculine cards,
