Hello Friend

Hello Friend card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps and dies from My Favorite Things
Here's my perfect for spring design for the current sketch at Freshly Made Sketches.  I represented the layout's diamond shape with a kite die cut from My Favorite Things.  The floral pattern I used for the panels on the kite was rescued from my scrap pile.  I adhered the kite and a pair of die cut shimmery white clouds to a blue card base.  The kite's tail was made  from a length of yellow twine adhered to the back of the kite, then curved along the cardfront and anchored with some dots of liquid glue.  For the sentiment, I die cut the word "hello" from both blue cardstock and craft foam. After layering the two pieces for dimension, I adhered them to the card base, overlapping the kite a bit.  To finish the sentiment, I stamped the word "friend" from the You Bake Me Happy set beneath the die cut word in a coordinating blue ink.

Materials Used:
You Bake Me Happy stamp set, Die-namics Thanks and Hello, Fly a Kite, and Flat-Bottom Clouds dies (My Favorite Things); Memento Bahama Bay ink (Tsukineko/IMAGINE Crafts); Baja Breeze, Pacific Point, and Shimmery White cardstock (Stampin' Up!); Harvest Gold cardstock (Papertrey Ink); patterned paper (Jillibean Soup); twine (The Twinery); craft foam
