Sending lots of love and hugs!

I hope all of you are staying safe and of course, crafting if you feel the inspiration too! For today’s card, I’ve created a fun embossed and colourful floral card to send love and hugs out during this time. Remember, sending a card out to a friend of a relative will no doubt put a smile on their face during this unusual time we are all experiencing. So let’s start Sending lots of love and hugs to everyone we know!

PRODUCED AS PART OF MY DESIGN-TEAM WORK FOR BUMBLEBERRY PAPERCRAFTS - SEE END OF POST FOR MORE DETAILS

Sending lots of love and hugs

Sending lots of love and hugs heat embossing

To start off, stamp in embossing ink the Altenew Exotic Garden stamp set onto Lavender Hero Hues Cardstock using your MISTI stamping tool. Next, cover this with gold embossing powder and heat set. 

 Colour if some of the florals in a variety of colours of your choosing. Here I went with blues, teals and purples to compliment the lavender cardstock. You can choose whatever colouring medium you prefer – for this card I use my Zig Clean Color real brush markers and they do work on this cardstock. 

Adding depth and dimension

Remember to add a few shades of colour in the flowers to create depth and dimension. Next, stamp and heat emboss in gold the ‘Hugs’ from the Altenew Hello and Hugs stamp set onto vellum. Once heat-set, die-cut this with the coordinating die. 

Choose a sentiment from the ‘Hello and Hugs’ stamp set and heat emboss this in white onto a strip of black card. Next, foam mount the sentiments onto the front of the card. You can hide the adhesive behind the heat embossing on the vellum sentiment. 

Lastly, add a few Morning Dew Nuvo Crystal drops around the floral design to finish the card off.
