Plaid Hello

Today's card was created with two specific challenges in mind - Addicted to CAS use plaid and Less Is More use designer paper. I combined the two for this quick and simple beauty.


I cut a panel using a Wonky Stitched Rectangle and then cut the hello from the panel. I used a scrap of plaid paper behind the negative cut so it would show through. I adhered the scrap behind the hello cut and then flipped it over and applied a little Multi-Medium Matte adhesive behind the small pieces so they won't come up or bend in the mail. The panel was adhered directly to the card base with some Be Creative double sided tape. I finished it by adding the little white piece of the E with some more Multi-Medium Matte. I thought about adding a few sequins or continuing the sentiment with some black stamping beneath the cut, but decided I liked this simple look.
