Hello, Honeyblossom!

For my birthday this year, my friend Marie sent me this lovely die by Memory Box called Honeyblossom Sprig.  I love the impact it gives a card!  Not long after, I spent some birthday money on some more dies by Memory Box, including this sweet "hello".


A simple black and cream palette, some embossed texture, and accents like pearls and ribbon, and this card is good to go!

Tip:  Adhering slender pieces of cardstock like these die cuts can be tricky.  I used Elmer's Spray Adhesive to help them stick to the card.



Paper: Vintage Cream - PTI; Basic Black - SU Fibers: black ribbon Accessories & Tools: Honeyblossom Sprig, Hello dies - Memory Box; pearls - Queen & Co.; Kassie's Brocade embossing folder - Cuttlebug; corner rounder punch - EK Success
