I used:

  • Background cutting file from the Silhouette store : Design ID #165901
  • 'Hello' cut with my cameo using font 'Lizard'
  • Small stamp from Altenew 'Build a flower Rose set' to stamp the pattern on the 'hello'
  • Zig markers to watercolor the flowers
  • Enamel dots
  • Bristol XL Illustration paper 180 g/m² to cut the background
  • Foam squares to pop up the sentiment


Wishing you a wonderful day!

Oh I love this, Hannelie!! What a perfect, and charming way to say hello! When I first saw this, and before I read your blog, I thought the 'hello' was cut from patterned paper! You clever girl!! The depth and texture this card has is incredible, and your design is fabulous. I need to go and look at these cut files! Love this card!!! Have a great weekend. Bev

WOW!! This is amazing!! I LOVE the touch of yellow peeking out under the white die cuts and the way you created the hello is so cool!

OMG..Love your interpretation of the challenge photo. All your textures, bright yellow and very creative and beautiful die cut hello are just wonderful. TFS Hannelie. Hugs...

This card is so interesting! I love the look of that 3D background, but do these layered backgrounds make the card front super heavy? Or do you use lighter weight cardstock? I've been tempted to try them, but have been concerned about the weight of the card front.

Oh, these colors are wonderful! The layered background is fantastic in white on the cheery yellow, and so pretty with the watercolored floral "hello". Love, love it!

I love the geometric Silhouette-cut background, Hannelie! The yellow card base and the yellow flowers on "hello" make the card look so bright and happy. Wonderful take on the inspiration photo! Hideko xx

Gorgeous, Hannelie ... love how your graphic background mimics the vase in our inspiration photo ... it's just a perfect place for that delicious die cut floral hello! Light, airy, fresh and fabulous! Thanks so much for playing along with us at Time Out! Hugs, Anita :)

You'd pay a fortune to get dies to do that background, Hannelie, and you've worked magic with a cut file. Adding the tiny flowers to the hello die is such a sweet touch.

Wow - I love your layered background - it is just stunning and is a beautiful take on the vase in the photo. I had no idea that could be done from a cut file - amazing design! Thanks so much for playing along with us at Time Out! Jill
