Sending Big Hugs with My Favorite Things

Happy Wednesday Everyone and thank you for stopping by.

Todays card features the Sending Big Hugs die and Hug it Out stamp and die set from My Favorite Things (which in case you haven't noticed, is one of MY favorite things!)


For this card, I used Neenah Classic Crest 110lb smooth white cardstock for the card base and the white card front. I used MFT A2 Rectangle STAX to die cut out the card front. On a scrap piece of the same white cardstock, I used Distress Inks in Broken China, Mowed Lawn and Squeezed Lemon to create a gradient. Then I die cut out the sending out big hugs from the gradient I made. I also die cut the sentiment from plain white cardstock and added it to the colored pieces to add some dimension. 

To make placement easy, I used the shell of the die cut sentiment and lined it up on my card front. Then I placed the letters back into the die cut paper and glued them down. Once I did the first layer, I removed the "stencil" and added the colored letters. This way, my sentiment is straight and spaced correctly.

I colored the animals from the MFT Hug it Out stamp set and die cut them out. I added glossy accents to the hearts and placed that in the middle of the sentiment. 

I added gems from Doodlebug Designs mini gems: spring assortment.

This simple card came out really nice and I am happy to share it with you.

Thank you for stopping by, stay safe and Happy Crafting!
