Beautifully simple 'hi' card by designer Melinda Spinks

Hello and welcome to the Hampton Art blog... it's Melinda with you today and I'm sharing a non-themed card I created that simply says 'hi'. Sometimes I find I have a drawer full of cards for birthdays, weddings, anniversary's etc but never a card to send to someone just because!

1. Firstly I cut and folded my card so that it measured 5" x 4" folded.
2. The patterned paper panel (5" x 3.75") was adhered using pop dots and positioned to the right of the card which allowed the 1/4" overhang on the left.
3. The white top panel (5" x 3.5") was embossed first and then adhered in position.
4. All the embellishing elements to the card were layered, again using foam pop dots and then to finish the card I added a few gems and then finally the die-cut wise word sticker sentiment.
