Hand-Penned Hello Card - Casually Crafting Blog Hop

Hey there!  Thanks for stopping by!  Today I'm taking part in a blog hop with the Casually Crafting Design Team!  We are an international group of Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrators who want to share our take on casual crafting.  We will share what we love with you monthly.  Be sure to check out the rests of the design team's projects using the links at the bottom of this post.

This month we are doing a Tic Tac Toe Challenge.  I don't do a ton of these, I'm not sure why, because they are loads of fun!  Like regular tic tac toe, you are aiming for 3 in a row, or more!  I decided to aim for the right side, using ribbon (twine), hello, and white on my card.  It really doesn't get much easier than that!

This card is super fast to make.  I would say the part that took the longest was making sure the 'hello' was dry enough to handle!  I stamped it with Whisper White Craft Ink, which does take a bit longer than classic inks to dry.  

Usually when stamping only a portion of a stamp, I recommend masking the unused part with Post-it Notes.  However, this time I did not mask.  Instead, I used my Basic Black Stampin' Write Marker to go over the 3 tiny dots of ink that were extra after trimming off the other words. one will ever know if you don't tell them.  😉

To brighten up my envelope, I used Liquid Glue to add a piece of the Hand-Penned DSP to the flap.  I love having envelopes that match my cards! 

Thanks again for visiting my blog!  Don't forget to swing by the other blogs in this hop to see the creativeness of my fellow team members!

Happy Stamping!
