Today, I’m sharing a card using this super adorable image from Dreamerland Crafts stamps called Big Hug – D19025. Great big in person hugs or even virtual hugs are always nice to have or to give to someone or something that you love. Have you hugged someone today?
To make this card I created a base card of 5.5″ x 4.25″ using Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock. With Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Salty Ocean, a Picket Fence Studio Blender Brush and Lawn Fawn – Cloudy Stencil, I created the clouds. Then, using a combination of Tim Holtz Distress Inks – Mowed Lawn, Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Bundled Sage, a Picket Fence Studio Blender Brush and a mixture of Lawn Fawn – Clippings – Simple Hillside Stencils and Lawn Fawn – Clippings – Slimline Grassy Hillside Stencils, I created the grass. With my Anna Griffin Empress Die-Cutting Mini Machine, Lawn Fawn – Giant Sending Big Hugs was die cut twice using Recollections – Black cardstock. Liquid glue was used to fuse the 2 pieces together. I applied glue to the back of the combined pieces and attached it directly to the base of the card.
Using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink, I stamped the main image onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card and coloured it in with Copic markers. Ranger Inkssentials – Glossy Accents was added to the glasses. The coloured image was fussy cut with scissors leaving a slim white border around it. This was then applied directly to the base card using U-Line – double-sided tape.
