Rebecca Baer Design Team Hello Card

 
 
Good morning and happy Tuesday! Today I have a fun and easy card to share with you featuring the Diamond Weave Petite Stencil from Rebecca Baer.
 
 
At first glance, this card may seem like its a lot of work but I can assure you in a few simple steps you can make a card that will look like you took hours to make!
This is a 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 card.
 

 The first step was getting out the diamond weave stencil and my distress inks.  This stencil is great and you can get so many different designs from it, I just started on one side of the card and worked my way over to the other side. Overlapping the stencil gave a lattice look which I was really please with.

 
The next step is to take a darker Distress Ink in the same colour family and use the lattice part with the flourishes and lines on. Again starting at one side and working your way over gently put your ink on and the impression will be on top of the lighter coloured lattice.
 
 

After I was finished with the stencilling, I got out my heart die and ran it through my Big Kick to create a row of hearts across the lower part of the cardstock.
 

I used the same die cut to cut out some more hearts in some fun colours.  I cut the hearts into pieces and added two at a time and created a row across the lower part of the card with the die cuts insetting them in to the part I cut out.



I also used a fun Hello die from Spellbinders and die cut that three times so I could layer the die cuts in a staggered pattern to create dimension. Now its time to put it all together.
 

 
 
You can see here a close up of the hearts, and also the Hello sentiment, I love the staggered look of the die against the lovely lattice background.


 
I mounted it on some navy card stock, and added a few fun sequins for finishing touches.


 
I hope you have enjoyed my card today, remember to check out all the fun  items in Rebecca's Store and also the DT blog as well.
