Hugs and Wishes

Happy Wednesday everyone.  Here in the northeast we are anticipating a huge snow fall - 10 to 14 inches.  I guess winter won't be going out quietly this year.  My card today is meant to be a hug in the mail with some words of love and support.  I used the challenge As You See It Challenge #170.

Card Base:  Soft Sky CS cut at 5-1/2" x 8-1/2"; scored at 4-1/4".  One of the Petal Pair embossing folders was used down the center of the front.  With the Layering Squares Framelits, I cut one of the scalloped squares from Night of Navy CS and used it to mat a piece of Naturally Eclectic DSP.

Sentiment:  Adhesive Sheets were added to pieces of Emerald Envy, Lemon Lime Twist and Naturally Eclectic DSP and used them to cut out the hugs sentiment using the Lovely Words Thinlits.  I also used one of the Layering Circles Dies around the thinlit so that I would have an edge around the sentiment.  They were layered together both for dimension and stability and added to the card.

Images:   I stamped the flower and butterfly images from the Hold On To Hope stamp set on Whisper White CS using Emerald Envy, Night of Navy and Lemon Lime Twist markers.  They were cut out with the Cross of Hope Framelits and added to the card with Glue Dots.

The Finishing Touch:  Added a little sparkle with a Rhinestone on the butterflies and the flower.

Thank you for visiting today.  Hopefully you aren't being slammed with lots of snow today.  Stay warm and be safe.

What a great way to use the big 'hugs'! I keep forgetting I have that set! Soft Sky works well as the base - it acts like a neutral here. This is a really pretty card. Thank you for joining us at As You See It.

This is another clever use of embossing for the vertical element of the sketch. I love the pretty colours you've chosen, Patti! Thanks for playing along with us at As You
