Sending Hugs - Betsy Birge, Guest Designer

Betsy Birge is sharing her second post as guest designer today.  Simply gorgeous!
Thanks so much for joining us Betsy!

Hello everyone!  So excited to be sharing this “Sending Hugs” card with you today.  There are so many ways to use this stamp set, as well as the dies.  I have chosen a very soft palette of pinks and greens.

First I stamped my hearts using 2 shades of Tombow Markers – keeping the darker shade along the outside edges.  I then lightly misted it with water to get a watercolor effect.  I used a stamp positioner to do this on Strathmore Bristol card stock.

Next I cut out the hearts leaving a small white edge.  I die cut my “Sending” and “Hugs” from lime green pearlescent card stock.

I next put my base together.  For the main base I used an A2 size white top folding card.  I covered that completely with a piece of lilac pearlescent card stock.  Then I cut a piece of the lime green pearlescent card stock to 4.125” x 5.75” and my patterned paper measures 4” x 5.25”.  I adhered all of these together.

I adhered my die cuts to the card gluing the “sending” and “Hugs” flat and popping up the hearts with foam tape.

For an added embellishment I used Nuvo Jewel Drops in Honeysuckle.  And that completed my card.
