Colorful Hello


I realized that I hadn't shared this little CAS card with you yet. I made this card for {ippity}'s January challenge to use brads. I stamped this little flower and hello from the How YOU Doin' set. The hello stamp had a row of little dots underneath, so I used those dots to place lots of little micro brads from Queen & Co. As much as love these tiny brads, I have had them in my stash for 3 years now (since my very first CKC) and it is time to USE THEM UP! I am now down to just a handful and it feels so good to have actually used them!

The flower was stamped on several different solids then paper pieced. I used the solid sides of patterned paper for this one. It is much thinner than cardstock and works great for piecing small images like this one. Easier to cut, too!

A couple of quick snips to the corners made for an easy tag, and then some cute American Crafts ribbon at the top. The tag is then pop-dotted up to give it some dimension. Super easy card-a great one to keep on hand.
