Papertrey Ink 5th Anniversary Day 2

Hello friends! We just lost Internet for some reason so I'm updating from my phone--never tried that before so please excuse any errors. So anyway, we are on to Day 2 of PTI's 5th anniversary celebration and the excitement definitely continues. Today we are to make a card using an image from the free download generously provided by Nichole (thank you!). I chose the cute 'Hello' image provided by Maile Belles--I love the graphic simplicity combined with a feel of motion:

No stamping, just that wonderful image printed on laser transparency and colored on the back with Copics. I used Text-Style 2009 Bitty Dot Basics and adhered it to white card stock, die-cut a round hole, and mounted the image behind the hole. Here is a side view so you can see the window:

Then I tacked down some of that wonderful vintage mini ricrac my Mom gave me, and finished off the card with a trio of buttons. Also chomped off the corners. Whew! I hope I get Internet back soon--typing on this tiny screen is the pits (I am NOT a texter!).

That's all for now, thanks for stopping by!



  1. LOVE this Cyndie (thanks for the polka dots *wink*!)! Love the cut out and colors. Fun combination of vintage rickrack with the more modern image. SPLENDID card!!

  2. Love this colour combination, the grey really makes the yellow and red pop. As always terrific colouring.

    I am with you on the chevron thing, don't know why I don't like it, maybe it's all those hard edges. Our stamp choices must be very similar - a bit scary!

  3. Awesome Cyndie, I love the colours that you chose. The yellow and orange rick rack just pop off the black polka dot.

  4. This is absolutely incredible, Cyndie! I love the ric rac. ;)

  5. Love the ric rac! great idea!
