Encouragement Cards, Feel Good Cards, Just Because Cards

Sending You A Paper Hug


Hi there, I hope your weekend is going well and that you’re staying safe and healthy.

I had the chance to hang out, virtually, with some crafty friends yesterday and this is the card that I worked on while we were spending time together.

I started by creating the background with The Stamp Market’s Scallop Background Builder stamp set.  I love the slightly art deco feel to this stamp set!  I used Altenew Chamomile ink to stamp the rays, and Altenew Sunray to stamp the circles, but it’s hard to tell the difference between the two, especially because I used a Midas Touch Nuvo Aqua Shimmer Pen to add some golden shimmer to the circles.

For the sentiment, I used the Paper Hug die.  I cut the thin sentiment from Strathmore Bristol Smooth cardstock and then used foam blending tools to ink blend Picked Raspberry and Carved Pumpkin Distress Oxide inks over the words.  Then I used the thicker sentiment shadow die to die cut plain white 110# cardstock four times.  I stacked and adhered these four layers together and then adhered the ink-blended sentiment on top.

For the small “sending you a” sentiment, I used the My Favorite Things Well, Hello stamp set.  I stamped in black pigment ink onto white cardstock, and then adhered this little sentiment over the larger “paper hugs” sentiment.

To assemble the card, I adhered the large sentiment onto the background, and then adhered the card front to an A2-sized card base.

Thanks so much for visiting!
