Hugs To You From Me

Hello there, today I'm sharing a card that was inspired by my previous blog post, when I had ago at designing my own embossing folders. I decided to use the embossed card from my experiment and put it to good use and create a card.  


Started with A2 US card blank folded to the left, embossed a piece of pink crelando card slightly smaller than the A2 card and embossed the card using a make your own embossing folder and ran it through my Cuttlebug. Cut a strip of Paperchase transfusion vellum (unfortunately not currently available to purchase) and folded it around the embossed card just slightly off to the middle and adhered the vellum with double sided tape at the back and used some glue dots to parts of the front behind the vellum for added security. 


Cut a piece of fun foam just smaller than the panel and applied double sided tape to one side of the foam and adhere to the panel then I applied double sided tape to the back of the panel and adhered this the A2 card blank. Using my Silhouette Cameo and the cameo software I typed word Hugs using Corey Font purchased from the Silhouette Design Store, placed a piece of sliver glitter card on a cricut mat and cut out using the cameo. Then cut a strip of black card and rubbed little cornflour (anti static) and stamped to you from me using the WW the big the bold and the beautiful stamp set using clear embossing ink pad and my DIY stamping tool. Poured over wow bright white embossing powder and heat set with heat tool.


Applied some micro glue dots to the bottom the H,U,G,S and placed on the black strip just above the to you from me and then I placed double sided tape to the back and adhered to the bottom of the vellum and using a ruler to make sure it was straight. I didn't want a lot of dimension due this was going in the post and what with postage costs on the rise.  Added three sequins and adhered them with micro glue dots.

Hope you have had lots of time to craft this holiday season and have had relaxing time too. I thought this card would be perfect to send to friend to let her know I'm thinking about her. I think a hug means so much and can make a difference too, even when it's sent as a card it does the same. What do you think? Enjoy the rest of your day.
