Sending Hugs

More hugs to share today….

This square card base was created by trimming a Penny Black “Les Petites”. 

Tip/Hint:  Saved the trimmed portion to make mini cards as shown “here”.

A second elevated base was cut from white cardstock and stamped with the sentiment in Onyx Black VersaFine and heat embossed with clear powder.

A strip of Fall Festival cardstock stamped with a flourish in Habanero VersaFine was matted with a black piece of cardstock edged in Delicata Golden Glitz ink.

For the medallion, the hedgie from Party Time was stamped, colored and then mounted to a white die-cut circle that had been sponged with Bahama Blue Memento ink.

The fun colored envelope is from the Les Petites Gumdrop collection.

Tip/Hint: Create a pocket in a rectangular envelope with adhesive applied to the inside left and right envelope edges to prevent the shifting of a smaller size card.  This can be a helpful alternative to using a square envelope (for which additional postage is required) or for envelopes that may be too small to meet postal mailing size requirements.

Have a wonderful day,
