Minty Hello


Hi all and welcome!  I missed the last Fusion challenge because I just couldn't get my mojo together but I'm back and loving this challenge graphic!


For my card, I used a new background stamp from Hero Arts and white embossed it onto a panel of Bristol Smooth cardstock.  I then blended Altenew inks over the panel in an ombre fashion before die-cutting it with a stitched rectangle die.

For the sentiment, I die-cut the Hello letters several times from white cardstock, stacking them together.  I topped them with a white glitter cardstock.


Below are a few close-up photos so you can hopefully see the embossing and the glittery word.




Thanks for visiting!  The rest of the Fusion team have some gorgeous cards so I hope you'll head over and check them out.

Karren you are truly back, and brought beautiful with you! I adore Hero Arts background stamps... thanks for introducing me to this one! If you use your imagination, it's like a field of tulips just popping through the earth... my wheels are turning, how about yours?

You most certainly are back, Karren...and I think you've become our 'Queen of Ombre' :) I love the deco flourish pattern on your background, especially with all those gorgeous shades of green! Great idea to use white glitter card for your alphas, too...such a striking card!

What a beautiful clean design on this inspired card Karren! Your embossed background is so delicate and beautiful on the shades of green and I love the added sparkle with the glitter paper on the sentiment!
