Stampin’ Up! Wood Words Hello for Happy Inkin’ Thursday

Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop

I used the Wood Words Bundle to create a Hello Friend card to share for our Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop today.  

Here is the sketch that inspired each of us. I hope it inspires you, too!

Stampin' Up! Wood Words Hello-Cardiology by Jari

I started with a Real Red card stock base.  To a panel of Wood Textures DSP, I adhered a Delicate White Doily with one side folded under a little.  I cut a length of the new Night of Navy 1/2″ Gingham Ribbon, notched one end and adhered it with Tear & Tape Adhesive.

The focal point is the beautiful floral design from the Wood Words stamp set, which I stamped in Night of Navy onto a panel of Whisper White. Then, I cut it out with a Stitched Shapes circle die.  I die cut a scalloped circle in Real Red and a little larger circle in Night of Navy, trimmed all of the edges of the circles and adhered them together with some liquid glue.

Next, I stamped the rooster and Hello Friend sentiment images in Real Red.  The rooster was die cut with the coordinating die from the Wood Words Bundle, and for the sentiment, I chose the small die from Bunch of Banners. The bow is a double strand of Linen Thread with a Night of Navy Enamel Shape Heart adhered at the knot.

More of the floral image was stamped in Night of Navy for the inside of my Hello Friend card to leave room for writing my message.  Enjoy!  

Card stock cuts and a complete supply list will be at the end of my post.
