Sending Hugs...

This "Hugs" card is going to my brother and sister-in-law as my niece left yesterday for Australia to follow her heart and live her dream.
I hope it cheers them up a little.

Resource - Materials - Method

Elegant Inspiration "The Rachelle Anne Miller Collection" 2 disc set cds

Super Smooth white card.
Core'dinations blue card cut using Spellbinders - Grand Label One and
embossed using Grand Impressabilities - Butterfly Garden - and then sanded.
Topper from cd was imported to MCS graphics programme and resized and, using the MCS Digital Punch tool, I made a circle and a heart changing the colours to suit and then typed the sentiment onto the heart. I cropped a bit of the background, tiled it and changed the colour to make a contrasting but toning back layer I printed the topper out twice, cut away the border from one and layered it on top to give added depth. I created loops at each end of a length of bright spotty ribbon and glued this to the card before placing the topper on using 3d foam tape. The scarf is glazed with 3d Crystal Lacquer and mulberry paper flowers and adhesive gems complete this design.

I hope you like this and you can see more from Elegant Inspiration at
