A Simple Hello

Here is my post that will on the blog this morning at
Classy Cards 'n Such

Hi Classy Friends, Diane here with you today with a card for our
weekly challenge "Negative"..."Sometimes it's okay to be Negative"
meaning to use a negative of a die cut...
Now, how simply FUN is that???

When I cut a die, I always look at the negative to see if it could be used....
The negatives are so pretty with background paper behind them,
which is what I did for this card.


I have a love for leaf and branch dies, and these are perfect for negatives...
I used a cream panel and cut two of the  five leaves from the
to put under my negatives.

I didn't stop there though, I cut the same two leaves from the smaller set of
these are the identical leaves of the larger ones, but just in a smaller size...
aren't they just the cutest??
I popped them on top of the larger leaves with Joy! Foam Pads Small,
giving a nice 3D look!

I finished off my panel with a pretty ribbon from my stash and tied a fishtail
banner on  with Doodle Twine Bright Assortment that has been
stamped with a sentiment from the JustRite Hello Daisy stamp set

My panel was then mounted onto my card stock using Scor-tape 1/4"

See how easy it is to use a negative??  I invite YOU to join the rest of the
Design Team in our "Negative" challenge...you could be our next "winner!!!
