Warm Hugs Card


Hey friends! Today I'm taking a short break from my 2020 Holiday Card Series to bring you this sweet card using Hello Bluebird Frosty Mornings stamp set. I had so much fun coloring up these sweet girls with Copics, and I even gave one of them a little floral pattern on her dress. I also pulled in the little bird from My Snowman for some extra sweetness. Then I trimmed the images out with the matching dies.

After all that time spent coloring, I wanted to create an easy, but eye-catching background. So I die cut some white cardstock with the Mama Elephant Peek A Frame and cut out an extra piece for the ground with the Lawn Fawn Simple Stitched Hillside Borders. Then I did a technique that I call "Ink Swiping." I took the ink pad directly to the paper and swiped across the surface, creating a textile look. I used Lawn Fawn inks in Ballet Slippers and Peachy Keen for the top and Manatee and Hippo for the bottom. I also stamped my sentiment in Hippo.

I used the other two dies from the Peek A Frame set to trim down my Simple Stories Cozy Days 6x8 patterned papers, which I layered onto a Narwhal card base. Then I popped my focal panel up with Foam Tape and added some Stardust Stickles as a finishing touch.
