Yesterday’s card was “Hey There” and today is “Hello There”.  I did not purposely make these matching cards.  And they do not look anything alike, so there is that difference.


This card is a 4 X 4 card that is intended as either a Birthday Card or a Gift Card.  It would work for either. I like doing square cards in that it makes cutting the paper super easy.  Plus it gives a different look to a common layout.

All of the stamps are from the I Say Hello stamp set.  I stamped the Hello There box in Pretty Peacock and then added the bow on top using Rococo Rose.  To get the candles to sit properly, I made a mask of the bow out of copy paper.  The thinner paper keeps the stamp from leaving an open area between the mask and your stamping.

Thank you again for visiting today.  I hope you have a great weekend and will return on Monday.  Even though it is a Holiday, I plan on having a project to share.  Being retired is like constant holidays and weekends! 🙂
