Hello, friends! Justin here from Just a Note By Justin and today I am sharing a card that is FILLED with Baby Critters! I thought it would be fun to have the Baby Critters set into the little cut outs of the A2 Saying Hello Cover Die.
Let's get into the details of how I put this card together.
I started off my card by coloring up all of my images from the Baby Critters Stamp Set with Copic Markers, and then using the coordinating dies to cut them out. I set them aside for later.
Next, using the Hello to You Word Die Set, I cut out the "hello" die 3 times, and stacked the die by adhering the layers directly on top of each other. I set this unit aside for later as well.
I then die cut the Saying Hello A2 Cover Die from tan cardstock. I ink-blended this panel HEAVILY with Brushed Corduroy, Vintage Photo and Ground Espresso Distress Oxide Inks. I then splattered the panel with some water to get bleach spots and splattered with residual oxide inks that was already on my glass mat. I set my panel aside to dry.
Using some of the cut outs of the small rectangles as references, I trimmed down (9) rectangles from white blending cardstock that are slightly larger than the rectangle cut outs. I blended the cut outs with (3) different color palettes, using the Rainbow Dreams 6x8 Stencil:

Blend One: Lucky Clover Distress Oxide Base, Pine Needles Distress Oxide over stencil
Blend Two: Crushed Olive  Distress Oxide Base, Forest Moss Distress Oxide over stencil
Blend Three: Tea Dye Distress Oxide Base, Walnut Stain Distress Oxide over stencil

I also splattered each of the panels with water and Forest Green Paper Splatter Watercolor.
Once my Saying Hello die cut was dry, I cut some strips of tan cardstock and lined the back of the panel wherever there were perforation holes. This helped cover up any imperfect behind the scenes happenings. I then adhere the Rainbow Dreams stenciled rectangles behind each of the cut outs to create different little windows.

I then began adhering my "hello" die cut, along with my Baby Critters in each of the cut outs! I finished off my card by adhering a few Speed of Light gems, and adhering my card to an A2-sized card base!
