Hallo / Hello Card (RCC #18)

Hello everyone!! :o)

Today I want to share with you this CAS (clean and simple), Hallo / Hello Card.

This Rainbow Color Card (RCC) is the eighteenth card I made for a Celebrating 30 Days of Pisces 2018 personal challenge. If you want to find out more about it, just follow the link provided. :o)

My card is a CASE of STUNNING card made by Francine Vuillème of 1001 cartes. Fabulous CAS design. LOVE LOVE LOVE!!! :o)

I went with same design, card shape and layout as Francine, but went with different theme, used different products and embellishments. :o)

Francine is a very talented and creative crafty friend from Switzerland. I love her crafting style. Her amazing designs and stunning coloring are an inspiration. :o)

Stop by Francine´s blog, 1001 cartes, and see more hers stunning creations. You can find her also over at InstagramYouTubeFBPinterest.

How I made my card...

For my card I used an explosion shape handmade stencil, which I made using an explosion shape stamp from UNIKO 'Explosion! Additions' stamp set. I described a process of making the stencil and shared my first project made using it in my yesterday's post (here). Although the stencil is made from a cardstock paper, it's still in a very good shape to use it at least one more time. :o)

I placed my handmade stencil on a white cardstock paper panel and blended Distress Inks through the stencil following the rainbow pattern. I removed the stencil and left colors to set up for a while.

While waiting, I heat embossed in white on a black cardstock paper a speech bubble saying 'Hallo' (German, Hello) from a Create a Smile 'Perfect Tune' stamp set and cut out the bubble shape following embossed lines.

With all pieces ready, I assembled the card. I glued the panel on a white side folded card base and glued a piece of a black cotton thread on the card. I glued some foam on the speech bubble and placed it over the thread.

Then I stamped two black tiny stars from Mama Elephant 'Cosmic Stars' stamp set and drew black dots with a black fine liner on the panel.

As a finishing touch, I embellished the card with enamel dots. :o)

Card dimensions: 133 mm x 101 mm (5 1/4" x 4")
