This is my second card with the “Sending Hugs” bundle. My inspiration came from Mikaela at “The Crafty oINK Pen”. This sample utilizes the largest of the “Scallop Contour ” dies and one of the “Stitched Rectangle” dies along with the “Sending Hugs” bundle. The colors are Crumb Cake, Flirty Flamingo and Soft Succulent. First, I die cut the Stitched Rectangle in Crumb Cake. Before die cutting the Floral/Hugs die, I placed an adhesive sheet on the back of the Crumb Cake panel. I ran the Floral/Hugs die back and forth through my Cut and Emboss machine several times to make sure the die cut through the two layers completely. Also, I used a second die cut, lightly tacked down on white cardstock as a template for coloring with the Stampin Blends. Using the adhesive on the back made it easy to adhere both of the dies (floral/hugs and the outline of the die) to the white layer. The tiny label die was used for the “TO YOU” image. Just like I did on the previous card, I added Wink of Stella Glitter Brush to the Flirty Flamingo letters for some added shimmer. The white Crinkled Seam binding “double bow” and three of the small Calypso Coral Artistry Blooms sequins finish off the card beautifully! The photo below shows some of the awesome “shimmer” on the HUGS letters, just gorgeous!
