Spotlight Die Cutting

Happy Saturday! Kara here today to share a clean and simple card design. Spring is almost here! If you live in the US, don't forget to 'Spring Ahead' this weekend. I know we lose an hour sleep, but it's worth it for all the extra sunlight in the evening. In the Northeast, where I live, it means warmer weather is just around the corner and more walks with my husband and dog, Piper!

I've used Autumn Leaves on this card and stamped them in a spring-like color combination. I love these PURE Color Dye Ink colors together. Mojito, Pumpkin Spice, Lake House, and Warm Wool. Seems like every combination I put together includes a little Lake House. I just love it!

Once the leaves were stamped, I die cut the panel with the Love Mom Layers die. I centered the 'hello' die, from the Bountiful Blooms die set, and ran it through my machine. This die cuts the word as well as an outline. I die cut 'hello' a second time from just plain white cardstock. This one I colored with Warm Wool ink and a sponge dauber. I set the Warm Wool colored hello and outline into the card panel opening and then placed the stamped 'hello' on top of that. This way the 'hello' sits a little above the outline and also has Warm Wool inside the loops of the e and l. I layered the card panel onto a white card base with foam adhesive.

It's as easy as that! Just a sweet and simple way to say Hello! Thanks for joining me. See you again soon!
