Hello Card!

Hi friends! Hope you all had a fantastic weekend.
Thanks for all the nice comments on my Eileen Hull project. I love her creativity and I have so many more ideas for that little suitcase die! 
I can't wait to show you!

Today I want to share this Hello card. To get started die cut the Vintage Typewriter, a Bigz die from the Alterations line, using grunge board and then paint with Black Dabber Paint. The card is from Kraft'Core, a black base card and a red matt. Use a Paper Distresser on the edges and then ink them with Vintage Photo Distress Ink on an Ink Blending Tool. I stamped the letters in the background with the School Desk set #57 from Stampers Anonymous  with Jet Black Archival Ink. 

 Now for the Typewriter, adhere a piece of dictionary print behind the keys. Add a little piece of paper coming out of the top of the typewriter and add a little message "hi friend" using some Chit Chat words. Pop dot the Typewriter to the card. Add Glossy Accents to the keys and space bar of the typewriter. Let dry. For a Royal Typewriter I bent my Crown charm with pliers and adhered to the top of the machine. Wrap twine across the top of the card and tie with a bow, don't forget the Type Charm. 

The "Hello" is die cut from Kraft'Core using the Inside Out Sizzlit Decorative Strip also from the Alterations line. I used two colors then adhere the letters to the card. 
If you like a Vintage look you may also like the Fan, Phone, Globe, Camera or Clock.  All these come in a mini version in the Movers and Shapers dies too.  
Which die is your favorite?
Have a great week!
