Sending Hugs Card

 I have returned to blogging after a short break to spend some time with my daughter.

This card was made with My Favorite Things Chevron Grid background stamp, Die-namics Sending Hugs, Blueprints 13, Sno Cone and Cement Grey cardstock, Simon Says Stamp Clustered Leaves die, Persimmon Distress Ink, Hero Arts Unicorn Ink and Bazzill vellum.

I began by stamping the background stamp onto Sno Cone card.  This layer was die cut with the largest of the Blueprints 13 dies.  The leaves were cut from vellum and adhered to the stamped panel.  The word die was cut 3 times and layered together, distress ink was applied to create an ombre effect on the top layer.  All the elements were then attached to a top folding card base.

I am adding this card to CAS(E) this Sketch - #194



  1. A beautiful card Nicola!I love the ombre effect on your sentiment. Stunning!
    Thanks for making our sketch shine!

  2. Oh, this is beautiful! Wonderful take on the sketch!

  3. This is so pretty - love the softness of your card and the ombred (is that a word) sentiment is a perfect compliment to the rest of the card.

  4. So pretty! I love the contrast of the sentiment against the background!
