This card is for the Free For All Challenge...1 of 2 for this challenge.
I’ve had this Hello stamp set by CP for a while. Apart from using 1 of the Hello’s once, it’s been sitting in my stash collecting dust so this challenge was just perfect to get out the stamps and stamp them all. I did have to look up a couple of the stamps to make sure they meant hello as there are some goodbyes on the stamp set too LOL.
After stamping this panel I tossed it aside as I didn’t like it and started another card using some of the stamps and co-ordinating dies.
Back to this card.....I thought why not emboss the BG to give it some texture. I’ve recently acquired one of TH’s 3D EF’s and after running it through my BS, saw I had embossed the wrong side. It’s beautiful on the other side LOL.
Oh well....it still looks ok to me. Plonked on navy CS and done. Easy card and I keep wondering how long those designers and YouTube card makers take to create and if they do a test run first LOL.
This will wing its way to a friend as everyone needs a hug during this crazy year, whether it’s texture is back to front or not LOL.
TFL. Happy day

Awesome use of the hello sentiment! I love the idea of creating a stamped background using only sentiment stamps, and the Paper Hug sentiment in the center is the PERFECT way to tie it all together! I gotta CASE this!!
Your card is absolutely spot on for the times we live in - a paper hug when we aren’t able to share a real hug. Brilliant!
You aced the hello challenge - TFS!
