Harlequin Stencil by Tim Holtz

Happy Tuesday, my crafty friends!!! 
Mackie here, to host the 7Kids Store blog! 
This card may look simple, but there are several techniques involved, which I thought I would try to share with you below.

First my card:

 Using the Harlequin Stencil(Tim Holtz), I colored a  4 x 51/4 white card stock with Picked Raspberry Distress ink with a mini blending tooland then cut out a circle.

I used the same Harlequin Stencil, and applied a thin layer of white embossing paste on a 4 x 51/4 white card stock. I set it aside and let dry.

I die cut the Lawn Fawn Hello   three times with scraps of card stock. I glued these together to make the word Hello thick like chipboard.  I  "colored" a piece of white card stock with Picked Raspberry ink. Then sprinkled it with water droplets to distress it. I then cut one more Hello out of this piece, which became the the top layer.

Here is a close-up of the details:

Pretty cool, huh?

 I saw a card similar to this one, from one of my favorite bloggers who is SO talented, called Jennifer McGuire. You can see her tutorial hereShe shows 2 ways to make this card. I tried the hardest, but did the easiest. Hey, I tried!!!!!!!
Hope you have enjoyed my card.
