Global Greetings - Day 2

Thank you all for your enthusiasm for the Global Greetings series! I'm so glad you're all enjoying the possibilities of these sentiments. Today I'm sharing two projects that incorporate all of the sets (along with a couple of English sentiments) for a little international flair.


The first card today features all of the "hello" sentiments paired with the globe image from Masculine Motifs. I started by stamping the globe in Spring Moss, Spring Rain, and Ocean Tides (stamped off once to soften the color) onto white cardstock. I punched out the globes with a circle punch and stamped the sentiments in Dark Chocolate ink.


Next, I cut a piece of Ocean Tides cardstock and stamped it with the dashed grid background from Background Basics: Retro using watermark ink. That piece was matted with Spring Moss and wrapped with Rustic Jute Button Twine. That layer was mounted to a white base with foam tape and all of the circles were arranged and mounted with more foam tape.


Today's second project is a set of thank you notes that includes one card for each language. I started by cutting a 3 1/2" x 5" base from each Berry Sorbet, Summer Sunrise, Harvest Gold, Simply Chartreuse, Aqua Mist, and Plum Pudding.


I stamped a pattern in watermark ink on each base using the compass image from Father Knows Best and the globe image from Masculine Motifs. Then, I die cut a Photo Finishers Strip for each card and stamped them with a "thank you" sentiment from each set. The strips were adhered to the base and the whole set of colorful thank you notes was finished.








Thank you for stopping by today! Make sure to visit NicholeHeather, Maile, Lisa, Melissa, and Tiffany for more projects and inspiration. I hope to see you tomorrow!
