Sometimes it takes only a word or a few words to convey so very much more that a person is feeling. By sending a card to a person, the front of the card is the key to communicating what the card is going to be about. There are easy ones: happy birthday, happy anniversary, with sympathy, congratulations, etc. And then there are the cards that we send that go beyond simple meanings. Words help---symbols help, too.
With my card today, I've used a very simple sentiment. "Hello" is an everyday greeting and is just meant as a greeting. Coupled with the heart in the word bubble, it means so very much more. This card greets someone who means a lot to you. It may be sent to your husband or lover. It could be sent equally well to your mother or daughter. Anyone who holds a piece of your heart knows that you're sending them love.
I kept the card very simple. My base is Naturals White with a layer of Marina Mist. Then I've added a layer of Whisper White on which I've stamped the little bird and arrow from the hostess stamp set, Hello Love. I've coloured the bird with my Blendabilities.
Just above my little bird, I've added a die-cut hello in a word bubble and then another word bubble that simply holds a heart cut from Red Glimmer paper. And that is my card. Simple, yes. But it will mean so very much more to the recipient.
