Hi all! I have two cards for you today. The Big Hello die from Simon Says Stamp just begs to be used for two cards at once, right? :)

The main color on both cards from from a blended background that I created with three Distress Inks: Walnut Stain, Peacock Feathers, and Tumbled Glass. After cutting out the Big Hello, I use the negative space to create this first card…

I used the actual die cut on my second card. The white textured background was created using Wendy Vecchi Embossing Paste and the Ring Custer Stencil from Simon Says Stamp (watch the video below to see how). I’ve seen this tone-on-tone embossing paste look in multiple places online recently and have been wanting to create it as well. Isn’t it so pretty?

Anyhow, let me know in the comments below which card is your favorite. Either Card 1 or Card 2. Your choice. :)
