“Happy World Card Making Day! Nicole here to share a fun way to say HELLO using repetition as a design element to a card. I created a fun and versatile Hello card to share with you using some pretty Echo Park Paper.

I diecut several “hello” using my Silhouette digital cutter, from various patterns in the Echo Park Summer Fun collection and lined them up on my card base. This created almost a patterned paper look to the background of my card.


Next, I diecut a large circle from vellum and added a digitally cut script “hello” for my sentiment, adding a smaller stamped sub-title using some Stampin’ Up stamps and cardstock. I added foam adhesive behind that stamped strip and added this over the series of hellos on my card front.


The vellum adds a nice softness over the bold larger letters on the base of the card, while still allowing the pattern to peek through.

I hope you will give this a try on a card project today! You could definitely do this technique with different sentiments for different occasions and get a completely different look!

Happy World Card Making Day!”
