Big Hugs Card


The Big Hugs card I made today is for a friend who is going through a personal issue.  To help create this card I used the challenge sketch from Freshly Made Sketches and a colour challenge from ColourQ.  I have to admit that these colours were truly a challenge for me.  My ink stash was not stocked with the right colors and I had to dig deep to find the right cardstock.

Big Hugs Card Supplies:
  • Paper: Regal rose cardstock by Stampin' Up!, bright blue cardstock by Recollections, white cardstock by Core'dinations, parakeet cardstock and tropical cardstock both by Bazzill Basics.
  • Stamps: Big Hugs sentiment stamp by studio g/Hampton Art.
  • Ink & Coloring: VersaMark watermark stamp pad and embossing powder in party pink by Recollections.
  • Other Stuff: Cuttlebug swiss dots embossing folder, Texture Boutique by Sizzix, Fiskars apron lace edge punch, wavy paper trimmer by Creative Memories, Offray ribbon, and blue rhinestones.
