Now on to my project!
Recently Perfect Paper Crafting introduced the NEW Mini Sized Perfect Layer Rulers. I honestly didn't think they would be that different, but I can say they are! Because they are shorter, they are quicker to handle and that makes it even faster and easier to add my layers on card projects.
I had a new background stamp "Hello World" sitting on my desk and that inspired my cards for today. Serendipity Stamps just released this new image made up of the word HELLO in all different languages and alphabets. I decided to make up a few cards for Operation Write Home. I paired up the background with a die set from Paper Smooches called Hello Word Dies. These are a little bit simpler than my normal cards. WHile there is not coloring going on today, I think these really show off how a simple card can be jazzed up easily using Perfect Layer Rulers! I changed up layers and layouts just slightly on each card.
For each Hello World background, I stamped using Versafine Onyx Black and the heat embossed using Clear Detail Embossing Powder.
With the word dies, I cut each word out of background color paper and then another color, piecing the word back in place. In keeping with OWH rules this helps to keep the card flat for easy mailing. Each card has one layer of foam tape somewhere for a just a little added dimension.
I couldn't resist sneaking a bow in there on one card.... It's silk so super lightweight and easy to mail for OWH!
I added a liner with a layer in each card as well. If you have layers on the front it only makes sense to match up the inside too!
