Happy Little Hello

Hi guys! I’m so excited to show you this card I made this last weekend. This is definitely one of my favorites! I finally decided to use felt and my new pear dies! I wanted to create a small, simple card, made for no specific reason but just to say hello.

Happy Little Hello 1

I sprinkled some dots of Simply Chartreuse and Ocean Tides ink with my Ranger Water Brush. I then cut the pears out of felt and glued them with Tombow liquid glue and added some gold sequins with glossy accents.

I’m so happy with how this card turned out! I’m on the lookout for more pear shaped stamps and dies so this is not my last pear card!

Thanks for reading! Please don’t forget to follow my blog if you’re not already!

About the Pear

Why The Lovely Pear?

So I know The Lovely Pear sounds a little funny but when I decided I needed a special little symbol for the back of my cards, I couldn’t think of anything! I thought of ladybugs, cassette tapes, just my initial, even the state of Texas (just a couple of items/shapes I love) when finally I remembered my awesome pear tree in my backyard. My favorite time of year is in the spring when this tree blooms! It is also a reminder of the hard work and dedication of my parents who not only planted this tree, but also gave me my childhood home. So that is why to me, a pear was the perfect symbol! And yes, the picture is of pears from my family’s pear tree, just lovely!
