Social Stamping by My Papercraft Journey Blog Host





Today is a blog post with a difference. It is actually a blog host - hosted by my sweet friend Kelly Kent. The idea is for everyone to blog a card/project with the theme of Hello - a great way to check in with friends and make sure we are all ok in this crazy world.





Hello Friend! How are you? 

This is a fun and fast card, inspired by Brian King. I love this Tropical Oasis DSP - it is so fun and cheerful. 

The sentiment is from the Seriously the Best stamp set which I have embossed in black to make it really stand out. Behind it is a circle layer of vellum.

A strip of black cardstock and a strip of ribbon and the card was done! I am planning on making a heap of these types of cards to share with friends and neighbours while we are all going through this terrible crisis. I want to let people know they are not alone and that someone is thinking of them and sending hugs from a safe distance.

  2. My first instinct is always to heat emboss in white, but I'm running to get my black out after seeing this - I love it! And also that vellum layer. So simple, but so effective. Thank you for joining the #socialstamping Kelly x

    1. thank you Kelly for organising this - it feels so good to spread some love and cheer around. And yes give the black embossing a go - great for images like this where you want it to be nice and bold.
