C4C263 World Hello Day

Good morning friends

It's Saturday, and that means a new challenge at the Crazy 4 Challenges Blog. Here is the challenge our November hostess, Frances issued:

World Hello Day
Yesterday was World Hello Day ... So for our challenge this week let’s create a card that says “Hello”. Bonus points if your card shows some way that we can say Hello ... eg by using speech bubbles on your card, using a phone stamp/die; using letters/envelopes on your card; Image of someone sending or delivering mail; saying Hello is different languages etc. 

I didn't use the word 'Hello', instead substituting 'Greetings'.  Same meaning, but it worked better with the penned sentiment inside.

Inside I made a Pop Up card (no surprise there) using the Lots of Pops Pop Up and the Holiday House die set. (Both by Karen Burniston for Elizabeth Craft Designs.)

I made a large word bubble to pen the words onto (for the Bonus Points!) using a die from Paper Smooches. Note, since the patterned paper from this company tends to crack along the folds, I applied Washi Tape on the back side of each scored fold of the Pop Up for added security.

I finally found all my finished Christmas cards - they were stored out at our cabin to keep them 'safe' during our recent move. Turns out I have more finished than I thought, so this one is actually starting my 2015 Christmas card stash.  I like to work on our Christmas cards all year long so when it's time to send our cards, I have a big stash all finished and ready to go.

Check out the blog to see how the Crazies have been inspired by the challenge.  We'd sure love to see your take on it, so be sure to stop by the Crazy4Challenges blog and add the link to your creations. If you are uploading to an online gallery, please use the keyword C4C263.
