Sending Hugs


Today's card was created for the latest Less Is More Challenge. I created my card by layering some pretty patterned paper from the American Crafts Neopolitan 12x12 paper pad onto my card base. I cut down a piece of Canson cold press watercolor paper and added some dashed lines to the edges by using a Paper Smooches edge die. I wet the paper and added a light circular wash of Tim Holtz distress ink in worn lipstick to the paper and dried it with my heat tool. I inked up the edges of one of the cute little jars I fussy cut from the same American Crafts paper pad using Versa Magic chalk ink in pink grapefruit and added some pretty crinkle ribbon from Diana Larson's shop. I glued an adorable wood veneer butterfly from American Crafts in the center for a nice touch of interest. To finish my card I stamped the sentiment from the Simon Says Stamp Friendship Messages stamp set directly onto the jar and then popped the whole thing up with some 3M foam tape. I plan on sending this to my daughter who is in need of some encouragement right now.  I hope you like it and thank you for visiting my blog today!
