Small Cards, Big Hugs
Sometimes it might be difficult to give your loved ones a big hug—maybe they’re too far away or maybe an illness is keeping you apart. Whatever the reason, if you can’t see your friends or family in person, sending them a handmade card in the mail is the next best thing!
For our casual Hugs card, we used the Night of Navy Stampin’ Write Marker to ink the word “Hugs” on the Sending Hugs stamp. We stamped the base of the card and the top and bottom of the cardstock with Granny Apple Green ink. The card was finished off with another small sentiment in Poppy Parade ink and some Loose Flower Flourishes.
To make the Avid card, we used Granny Apple Green, Petal Pink, and Poppy Parade Stampin’ Write Markers to color in the flowers, berries, and leaves. We also added some more color to the card with Neutrals 6″ x 6″ (15.2 x 15.2 cm) Designer Series Paper and some Linen Thread.
Making our Artfully Avid card was so much fun, especially when we used the Layering Hugs Dies. First, we die cut our main image using vellum, then we cut out the individual letters with Night of Navy Ombre Specialty Paper. Then we added some Subtles 6″ x 6″ (15.2 x 15.2 cm) Designer Series Paper, a few die cut and colored flowers, and some Elegant Faceted Gems to make it pop.
