HELLO CARD

Today I am sharing some cards I made with you. I needed a few cards to send off with some pictures I had printed of the kids for family members.  So I went looking through my pinterest card board for some inspiration.  I found a card I really liked HERE and decided I would use that as my inspiration.  I found a leafy cut file in my silhouette library and modified it even more once it was cut.  I cut off the two top right leaves after it was cut becuase it ended up fitting on the card front better that way.  
 I went through my stash of paper looking for some silver glittery paper and didn't have a piece big enough to do all the hellos that I needed. Then I cam across this amazing silver almost mirror like paper I forgot I even owned. I have no idea when I got it or where even, there isn't even a name on the back or anything.  Darn.  I will have to keep my eye out for it because it is alot of fun and so shiny.  It is like putting a tiny die cut mirror on your card.  So fun!
The word hello that I cut from the silver shiny paper was a silhouette I had in my library.  

I needed 7 cards so I decided to make each of them in a different color, just for fun.  Then on each card the silver dots are all the same, and the silver twine, but I changed the color of the rhinestones to match the color of the cardstock I used on the leaf.  
I love vellum and I think that is what drew me to the original card so much was the vellum overlay on top of the leaves.
So I did the same and cut the exact same leaf in the exact same size as the cardstock one out in vellum.  
I glued down the colored cardstock so it was flat on the card.  I then only glued down the vellum right on the top stem part.
I used a little glossy accents to glue it down and then also to hold down the silver twine bow and silver dot on top of that.  
I randomly placed a few more silver dots and rhinestones so that it had uniform with all the cards, but still a little randomness of its own.  

I wrote little notes inside each card to the person I am maling them to and enclosed the printed pictures.  
Now I just need to get them to the post office this week.  :)

    1. What is the image itself or what is the material?

      The material is card stock and also vellum.
      The image is from the SILHOUETTE AMERICA DESIGN STORE, I can look it up when I get on my other laptop if you would like to know the design number. :)
