Artfully Composed Hugs
I designed this card for a friend who is in the hospital. She is a traveler and this paper reminded me of her.
Card Base: Cut Evening Evergreen 8 ½ X 11 paper in half widthwise. You now have two pieces 8 ½ X 5 ½ Fold one of the pieces in half lengthwise for your card front. The card front now measures 4 ¼ X 5 ½.
Card Mat: Cut Pear Pizzazz paper 4 X 5 ¼. Die cut the palm from the center of the mat, this is a great paper saver. Your mat will be covered with the print paper so the cut out opening won’t show.
Card Front: Cut print paper from Artfully Composed paper pack 3 ⅞ X 5 ⅛. Cut a different print ¾ X 3 ⅞. Cut a third print 1 ¼ X 3 ⅞. This paper pack has great prints that mix and match easily. Attach the 1 ¼ wide print at the bottom of the 3 ⅞ X 5 ⅛ print. Attach the ¾ wide print above the 1 ¼ print piece. Attach card front to card mat. Attach these to the card base.
Attach the die cut palm to the lower edge of the card front over the rows of print paper. Stamp sentiment on basic white card stock with Evening Evergreen ink. Punch out sentiment with Everyday Label punch. Attach punched sentiment to card front over the lower edge of the palm. Add three Faux Sea Glass Shapes to the punched sentiment.
That’s it; you have finished your card front. For the inside of your card, cut a piece of Basic White 4 X 5 ¼. Stamp a sentiment or write a note before attaching this piece inside your card.
