Hugs

I have a new card for you today that was inspired by two current challenges.

Less Is More - Alphabet and Addicted to CAS - Wood.


I started my card by cutting a white card base and setting it aside. I cut a panel from some Blackberry Bliss cardstock with a Wonky Stitched Rectangle die and then used Versamark ink to stamp a woodgrain pattern onto it. I heat embossed it with clear embossing powder to help it stand out a little more. I cut my sentiment from some Fog Gray cardstock with a word die and then cut my rose from white cardstock. I arranged my flower where I wanted it and adhered it with some Mutli-Medium Matte adhesive. I used the same adhesive to adhere my letters on top of it. I added my panel to the card base with some foam tape for dimension and then finished the whole thing off with a sprinkling of Sparkling Clear sequins from Pretty Pink Posh.
