Update: This card placed in the Top Three at theAtlantic Hearts Challenge #98!
Inspiration for this card came from the Atlantic Hearts Challenge, Sketch #98. The card could be used for almost any occasion because of the generic sentiment.
The word "hello" was die cut once in foiled cardstock and again in Fun Foam. The foiled cardstock was adhered to the fun foam to raise up the word and also provide a shadow effect. (The fun foam flattens when run through a die cutter but bounces back into shape within a few seconds.) The interior of the card is lined with a white die cut for writing a note and decorated with the gold foiled cardstock and DSP. The envelope was lined with coordinating DSP in a stripe design.
