Let’s Make a Stack of Cards with Photoplay Hello, Lovely
Hello, Friends! Let’s make a stack of cards today with Photoplay Hello, Lovely Collection. About once a month, I select a “mostly used but still good” paper collection from the Closet of Inspiration and Delight. Then I go to work on creating a stack of 12 simple, but pretty note cards.
This accomplishes two things: I use up a paper collection that’s been languishing in the closet. And after a couple of hours of work, I have a lovely pile of little notecards ready to go. Most of these end up as little “extra helpings” in my Etsy shop shipments. But it’s also very nice to have a blank card at your fingertips when you need to write a quick note.
Sound like fun? It is! Let’s dig in , shall we?

Today’s pick for Let’s Make a Stack is this pretty paper collection from PhotoPlay. I love the color palette, the patterns are right up my alley, and the sentiment stamps are wonderful. But I have to be honest with you. I really don’t care for most of the 3×4 focal images that come in the collection. Does that ever happen to you?
To remedy this situation, I decided to die cut some of my patterned paper with Spellbinders Picot Petite Ovals Die. Then I just added one of my stamped and inked sentiments as the focal image.
Entwined Wreath on the Assembly Line
To save time, I decided to stamp the same sentiment over and over instead of using a bunch of different sentiments. After all, the point of this particular crafty adventure is to make as many cards as possible in the least amount of time. Repetition saves time.
I also die cut several of the Crafter’s Companion Entwined Wreaths. Adding a circular element like a wreath to a square card softens all those square corners and adds a lovely, feminine touch to the composition.
I did use 4 of the 3×4 sentiments that I liked. Then I dressed everything up with white burlap string bows, sequins and Pastel Sweetheart Blossoms. I really like the way the cards came out, and I hope you will enjoy watching them come together in today’s video tutorial.
