Hello – just Hello

Sometimes Hello is enough:

Maui Stamper Petite Petals Hello

This subtle Designer Series paper is one of the hidden gems in the Sweet Sorbet Sale-a-bration offering.  I love having these single tone papers in my stash – they provide interest and texture without distracting.  If you’re pairing Melon Mambo with ANYTHING you want to be careful not to get too distracted!

Maui Stamper Petite Petals HelloTake a good look at this detail – it’s not what you might initially think.  The Melon Mambo oval is a frame, not a mat.  Typically, to achieve this look I would cut two ovals:  the larger would be Melon Mambo, the slightly smaller would be the DSP.  However, in this case I wanted a different type of texture, so the two ovals are actually cut the same size, but there’s a smaller oval cut out of the center of the Melon Mambo oval.  That creates a raised frame instead of a mat that sits behind the paper.  It’s subtle, but I like the difference.

It’s VERY difficult to see in the full-card photos, but the first one is done with the frame style and the second is done with the mat style.  As I said, it’s a very subtle difference, but you notice it when you hold the card in your hand.
